News: THE AVENUE releases anthemic stadium rocker ‘LOVE’


Alternative new wave rockers THE AVENUE, release their driving, synth pop anthem, Love ahead of their sophomore EP.

Drawing from  synth new wave bands of the 80s and modern post-rock bands THE AVENUE’Snew single, Love, jumps out of the speakers with all the ferocity of a panther, pouncing on the listener, demanding their attention. But it’s those insanely catchy melodies delivered by emotive lead singer Sam Thomas, that really hook you in.

Reminiscent of U2, The 1975 and Kings Of Leon the band have quickly gained a reputation for catchy pop numbers that have serious weight behind them.

Love is more than the sum of its parts. More than  just about unrequited love, more than just about desire, more than just internal conflict. It has an emotive anchor that keeps you tied.

“Love is by far our heaviest and most punk/grunge song. It’s about the feeling of your body screaming out for a person but your mind detesting the thought of them.” Sam Thomas – The Avenue

The band have supported a range of national and international acts including the likes of British India, Paper Lions (CA), All We Are (UK), The Getaway Plan, Columbus, and CREO.

Their previous EP and singles have been widely praised with Claire Mooney from Triple J saying that the band “… are literally like the Australian version of the 1975. Very poppy, but maybe a tad more rocky.”

Also from Triple J, Liam Stapleton said of single Take Your Time,  “…very tasty indeed. All about the pop rock vibes, keep on smashing it!”
