November is a great month for movies and music in 2013. This week has already seen a new “Greatest Hits” release from The Killers, but the focus of this post is on another one of Las Vegas’ own music treasures (by way of Buffalo, NY) Avalon Landing. I’ve been enjoying Avalon Landing for a while now, and have seen them a couple times opening up for another Vegas’ powerhouse, Imagine Dragons.
You may remember Avalon Landing, as I introduced you to them back in July. Over the past few months they’ve changed drummers, and have really increased their promotion of this new release.
Avalon Landing released their second full-length record Reside this Tuesday. The record has the same style as their first release Demo’s, Dead Ends & Do Overs” but the lyrics definitely show the maturation of the band. They have definitely expanded on their sound and this new album is a bit more polished and refined, which does the band well.
The first single off of Reside is “About Face”.
Avalon Landing has started to tour around a bit more, but currently only has dates listed for Las Vegas. I hope to catch them again soon.
You can listen to the whole record on SoundCloud.
I do hope that they become the next big band from Las Vegas, but as of right now there is a lot of tough competition for that title.
You will like them if you like: The Fray, One Republic, The Script.
