Avalanche are 4 misfits from Sydney’s west, playing gut-busting, roof-crashing, piss-off rock n’ roll for a new generation. Forming and rehearsing in an old steel factory in 2018, the band have firmly cemented themselves into the sticky floors of the national underground scene in just over 2 short years, with major national & international airplay, 5 major releases, non-stop gigging and touring, and their own music festival.

Now, the band are proud to present their second EP release, Second Hand Band, a loud and lewd 6 track EP featuring the stand-out singles from 2020, Permanent Ink, and Get Back (To Fuckwit City), and acts as a follow up to their 2019 debut-double EP, Sent From Hell, which has seen over 1300 physical copies sold worldwide.

Second Hand Band is the band’s ultimate statement. Perfectly capturing the experiences of a young rock band; thoroughly used, gently bruised and in somewhat working order, like a second hand sex toy you might find on Gumtree; all for your pleasure. This is hard rock. Real honest to God hard rock, as only 20-somethings from Sydney’s West (famous for producing tradies, drongo’s and long-arse Centrelink queues) can do.

In this way, Second Hand Band is the band. Tinged by the influence of their dad’s record collection and the dirty pub rock of Australia’s past, but played through the interpretation of their own generation. Avalanche have moulded and captured their signature sound & live show, one which routinely leaves the audience covered in blood, sweat and spit – and packaged it within 27 minutes of raw, ribbed, extra lubricated goodness, with new single (and title track) Second Hand Band, several music videos and a national release tour also in the works.

Recorded at DEF WOLF Studios with Producer & Engineer Mark Matula, the band worked hard to produce a warm, old-school feel, practically recording live in the studio, with a no fills, no frills, guitar-in-amp, stripped-back approach. This is no messin’ about, no ballads, no acoustic guitars, no smoke & mirrors, stripped to the bone rock n’ roll. Raging guitars, pounding bass, air-tight drums and vocals packed full of power, with the kind of passion and dedication that only these 4 can produce.

    Dvacet sedm minut „Second Hand Band“ do mrtě splňuje princip teorie relativity, prosviští ušima ani nevím jak a jsme na konci. Nakonec se pak zdá těch šest skladeb málo a jako taková jednohubka, lákající na plnometrážní debut. Už by to chtělo přemýšlet o plném nahrávacím čase. Není vůbec marná, tahle kapela z „druhé ruky …read more

    Thunderous, melodic, technically simple (but not in extreme form, because they use very good sets of rhythmic changes), gathering those nasty and dirty influences from the past (that same ones that reeks to whiskey, cigar smoke and brawls on a pub full of drunken people), but writing things on their own way. So, their music is full of that old and good nasty energy, catchy arrangements and solid instrumental work (with melodic vocals instead of sandpaper voice tunes) …read more

    „Bier ja, aber nicht ernst“ dürfte eher passen. Die Musik ist ziemlich nahe an den Landsmännern und Giganten von AC/DC angesiedelt. Rotzig und rock’n rollig wird die Bude gerockt, dass es kein Halten gibt. Vom Gesang her aber nicht so kratzig wie Brian Johnson oder Bon Scott. Demnach sind Avalanche keine bloße Kopie der Vorbilder, sondern durchaus eigenständig. Geradeaus voll auf die 12 werden die Marshalls gequält was das Zeug hält. Der Fuß wippt mit und die Hand geht automatisch zur Bierflasche …read more

    With hard rock roots and their own flavour, Avalanche is to today’s generation what AC/DC was to the 70’s. They haven’t been around for long but have made a big splash in the industry and with fans by already having their music video of the titular song Second Hand Band premiere in Rolling Stone Australia. With the release of Second Hand Band I see them only rising higher. The band as a whole is a unit that seems to only have one purpose and that is rock …read more

    Von Avalanche hatte ich zuvor noch nichts gehört. Umso mehr begeistert mit welch hoher Qualität die Vier zu Werke gehen. Ja, an vielen Stellen nutzen sie altbekannte Riffs und Harmonien. Aber was ist daran schlecht, wenn man darauf seine eigene Kreativität aufsetzt. Das große Plus der Band ist natürlich die Gitarristin. Sie kann sich mit den besten ihrer Zunft messen. Wenn irgendwann einmal Bands wie AC/DC oder Rose Tattoo von der Bühne abtreten, muss uns nicht Angst werden. Der Geist dieser Bands wird weiterleben. Die Nachfolger scharren schon mit den Füßen …read more

    Another band with good old AC/DC and a big party vibe in their sound. It’s full of adrenaline, but also catchy as hell of course. This band will rock the shit out of you! Because how could you not be interested in a band like this?
    AVALANCHE consist of 4 misfits from Sydney, who carry the Australian rock legacy to the new generation. The band formed in 2018, and this is their second EP, which features 6 tracks of explosive hard rock n roll. No silly ballads or something like that. Just pure rock and nothing else …read more

    L’album 2nd Hand Band est un bel hommage au passé, frais et vivant, bien loin de sentir le moisi. Le potentiel est là et quand AVALANCHE trouvera le moyen de se démarquer le plaisir sera total …read more

    The EP is made up of six grunge, old school Aussie rock tracks. Avalanche’s sound is similar to Melbourne’s alternative rockers Canyon in terms of gruffness and attitude. The band describe themselves as ‘if AC/DC tripped over Wolfmother and fell down the stairs while playing Rose Tattoo they’d land as Avalanche!’, which is absolutely brilliant! And a perfect description …read more

    This is nothing but fun. That’s it. This is the band that went to school with the patches on their denim jackets, just like we did, but unlike us had the skill – and the will – to emulate their heroes. Avalanche is four people playing the music they love. And doing it superbly …read more
