Avalanche are a 4 piece hard rock/old school rock n roll band from Western Sydney in their 20s, playing heart-racing, gut-busting, roof crashing Aussie rock ‘n’ roll for a new generation.
Their latest EP Second Hand Band has been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, Fireworks Magazine, Tone Deaf, The Music, The Sydney Morning Herald, and played on TV on 1700/C31 In Melbourne, on ABC Radio, i98FM, Hard Rock Hell Radio and many more all over the world. Their last 3 music videos have amassed over 54k views on YouTube & over 120k views on Facebook. Their latest EP has had tens of thousands of streams on streaming services & they’ve sold thousands of physical copies worldwide.
The band is made up of the husband-and-wife duo of lead vocalist & bassist Steven Campbell; a sheer force of nature, incessantly sweating, running, jumping, and screaming all over the stage whilst stripped to the waist, and Veronica ‘V’ Campbell; a tall, dark and aggressively powerful lead guitarist, often seeing playing her blistering guitar solos on the floor, in the crowd, and even running outside the venue. Then, the incredibly skilled and youngest member of the band; Ryan Roma aka ‘ADHD’ on drums, and rhythm machine and absolute life of the party (seriously, be prepared) Arthur Divis aka ‘the new guy’ (not really) on rhythm guitar.
Avalanche are waving the flag for Aussie Rock, continuing their bloody, sweaty on-stage rampage and winning new fans every time they play.
“Avalanche have been making a name for themselves as purveyors of blistering Aussie hard-rock in much the same vein as those who came before them, with clear influences being taken from the likes of AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, & The Angels… they’re one band you need to watch”. – Rolling Stone Australia

Quote about the song:
Steven Campbell (singer/bass player): ‘Bottle Of Sin’ represents every night out you’ll never forget but can’t remember! It’s the devil on your shoulder telling you ‘one more’ then ‘ten more’ after every drink. It’s fast, hard, and loose Aussie rock n’ roll! And the perfect soundtrack for your next night of bad decisions!
We recorded it at A Sharp Recording Studios with Grammy-nominated and ARIA Award-winning producer Steve James, who has produced so many bands we admire including The Sex Pistols, Airbourne, Cold Chisel, The Angels, The Screaming Jets, and even the legendary ‘Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life’ from Monty Python’s Life Of Brian. He knows rock n’ roll inside and out, and together, I think we’ve made one of our best sounding tracks so far!
