I Am The Avalanche Announce Tour

posted October 4, 2005

From East Coast to West, I Am The Avalanche will criss-cross the nation for the next two months (tour dates below) in support of their self-titled debut, which hit the streets September 27th 2005.

Produced by Barrett Jones (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Melvins) the album resonates with Vinnie Caruana’s (former front-man of The Movielife) sometimes dark, but always clever lyrical musings accompanied by heavy, intoxicating guitars and drums. The Long Island Press described the disc as “a powerful, highly unique collection of songs” and “his (Caruana’s) most accomplished work to date.”

I Am The Avalanche was selected as one of Alternative Press Magazine’s “100 Bands You Need To Know In 2005” and was featured in the magazine’s September “Fall Preview” issue. Critics are abuzz with accolades for the new album and word of their dynamic live show is spreading, too. I Am The Avalanche recently played the Drive-Thru Records CMJ showcase to 1300 fans and the set was described as “airtight” by Newsday. Touring nation-wide with a variety of artists (Bayside, Honorary Title, Piebald) The Avalanche is coming to rock you!

I Am The Avalanche is Vinnie Caruana (vocals, guitar), Brandon Swanson (guitar), Kellen Robson (bass), Michael Ireland (guitar) and Brett Romnes (drums).
