THE NEW TRUST (mbrs of Velvet Teen)
"We are really bad at describing our sound, so if you could just listen, that would be great. I do know that our songs are shorter than average songs, but not faster. We are indie rock, really, independent rock music."
Pink Avalanche reunites guitarist/vocalist Che Arthur (ex-Atombombpocketknife) and drummer Adam Reach (The Poison Arrows), who had previously played together in the Chicago/Alabama trio Universal Life and Accident and on Arthur’s solo albums. Those writing sessions quickly became recording sessions, and as an album began to take shape Arthur and Reach began to realize it was time to fill out what had been a “project” into a full band. Enter guitarist Kortland Chase (ex-Chatty Cathy) and bassist Pete Croke (Tight Phantomz, Brokeback). Pink Avalanche’s “Wraiths” album is nearing completion and the band will be playing shows in fall and winter 2012 and into spring 2013.
Three-piece Chicago punk band. Please, watch what you say around these guys, for fans of hot snakes, abba, les savy fav, detachment kit, shellac and Katy Perry.
After cutting their teeth in various bands, and in genres that run the gambit between metal, mathcore, grindcore, punk, and post-punk, the individuals that make up Empty Isle wanted to form a new band in the spirit of straight-forward honesty. Drawing from the rich vein of the mid-90's Midwest bands, Empty Isle set about creating their own interpretation of the music they loved growing up.
