It has been six years since I Am The Avalanche released its self-titled debut album, but the boys are back with a new album and a new perspective on life on Avalanche United, due out October 11. Frontman Vinnie Caruana told Rock Sound that his divorce “provided a lot of content for me to pour my heart out about. It was a monumental thing that happened while we were writing, and the tone of the record took a sharp turn after it.”
 
Avalanche United is a compilation of 12 songs that show the band’s struggles and victories. The first single, “Holy Fuck,” premiered on Rock Sound earlier today and discusses the pain of someone (We can assume Caruana) trying to hold on to something he never thought he was in jeopardy of losing. It’s appropriately titled when you consider the immediate reaction of someone who believes they are losing at love and subsequently at life.
 
Avalanche United in an undeniably vulnerable and raw follow up to the band’s debut album and every bit as engaging. Check out the band as it hits the road on its U.S tour starting in October alongside Saves The Day, Bayside and Transit.
