ALTERNATIVE MUSIC BANDS

Avarice

April 25, 2015

Avarice are a Bristol based Hard Rock trio originally from Wales. They have been playing together since 2011 so they're performances tend to be "tight" and consistent as they've been playing together for so long.

Their influences include bands such as Press To Meco, Biffy Clyro, Arcane Roots and Don Broco. All of these influences are mashed into one to create their sound. Their sound consists of heavy riffs, epic melodic chorus', lots of hooks and plenty of harmonies to keep things interesting. This can be heard in tracks such as "Squares" and "Break Me In".

Their live shows are high energy as they put all they have into that 30/45 minute or so set they get given. They always make sure to do some crowd participation to ensure the crowd are having as much fun as they are. For the past couple years they have been gigging relentlessly around Wales and recently have relocated to Bristol so they can be a part of their thriving music scene. Since their move, they have played at venues such as The Fleece, The Louisiana, The Exchange, The Thunderbolt, The Gryphon and Mr Wolfs. Since they started gigging, they have shared the stage with bands such as Press To Meco, Liberty Lies, My Favourite Runner Up, Montrose, Enemo-J and many more. In between their gig schedules they tend to do acoustic sets and open mics so they are regularly playing music to people and spreading the word about the band.

They have independently released 6 demos. some of which are a part of the "Home Recordings" series which they release every year. In the summer they are planning to release their first studio 5 track EP and also release their first music videos from the back of it.
