Exploding out of Seattle, WA, hotly-tipped hard rock five-piece AVOID have been rapidly making a name for themselves thanks to their electrifying live show and an unabashed experimental approach to their music. The result is an alchemistic audio dose of heavy hedonism, the stamp of a young act unafraid to equally embrace both their innovation and individuality.
With latest release The Burner have already made their mark. Securing a partnership with NASCAR including an AVOID car scheme and tracks “Song About James” and “HEAT” in video game NASCAR Heat 5, as well as being an Accelerator Artist To Watch with three tracks in rotation on SiriusXM Octane and Liquid Metal, they exploded unafraid in a year where so many were questioning next steps, and secured a coveted place on Thriller Records’ roster as their ambassador act on announcement of the label.
And that’s where this band wins - an insane work ethic and the understanding of a classic-era need to grind, paired with the constant experimentation and nothing-left-to-lose mindset of legacy and new Pacific Northwest acts. Confident of what they are creating, and about to kick global ass, AVOID ready to take their place in the new wave of great heavy young acts.
