Debut album ’24 Carat Diamond Trephine’ out now via So Knee Records
“The most exciting rock & roll band in the UK right now” – BBC Radio 1
“A tsunami of mega riffs and eardrum-popping bass lines. Definitely don’t want to wear your Sunday best to one of their raucous gigs” – NME Magazine
“Full of swaggering rock’n’roll elements, with a bit of glam pop thrown in, there’s a theatrical anthemic-like nature” – DIY Magazine
Following the release of their anticipated debut album ’24 Carat Diamond Trephine’ Avalanche Party have shared their brand new video for ‘Bugzy’, the dark, skulking post-punk anthem that borders on threatening, now matched with visuals to accompany the twisted psychosis.
Avalanche Party are the feral garage-punk quintet from the North Yorkshire Moors who’ve built a prominent reputation off the back of their intense and immediate performances across Europe and the US. ’24 Carat Diamond Trephine’ has received praise from the likes of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders, 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Radio X’s John Kennedy, Clash Magazine, Classic Rock, DIY Magazine, Rough Trade and many more.
The band have toured the UK & Europe constantly with numerous sell out shows, festival appearances and they’ve just returned from their first trip to the States, including performances at SXSW, New Colossus Festival in New York & headline shows in Los Angeles and Tijuana in Mexico. Notable UK performances include Reading & Leeds Festival, Isle of Wight Festival, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Tramlines Festival, Live at Leeds, Y-Not Festival, Humber Street Sesh, Truck Festival, 2000 Trees Festival, Deershed Festival, Twisterella Festival, Hit The North & Stockton Calling. European Festivals such as London Calling (Amsterdam), Psycho Mind Festival (Tilberg), Mikser Festival (Serbia) and Olgas Rock (Germany). This all alongside multiple European tours taking them to Belgium, France, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia.
’24 Carat Diamond Trephine’ is undoubtedly a fist-raising crowd pleaser, but like contemporaries Fat White Family, Viagra Boys or The Blinders, they’ve used it as an opportunity to enforce their own birds-eye view of the world. They tackle hefty themes of anger and fear, the capitalist machine that drives us ever closer to the great flaming End, cloak-and-dagger corporate greed, the environment, lyrics of love, death and an individual’s walk through a world they were spat into, laughing as they go.
