Combining a highly imaginative and contemporary feel of modern rock with the driving energy of pop-punk, Every Avenue’s collective sound is a unique blend of The All American Rejects and Fall Out Boy. South Florida Insider
The last year has been huge for Marysville Michigan natives Every Avenue and since their latest debut full-length Shh. Just Go With It which hit stores, February, 19th of this year they show no signs of slowing down.
The guys recently finished wrapping up punk rock summer camp AKA Warped Tour this month, just in time to jump on “The Compromising of Integrity, Morality & Principles in Exchange for Money Tour.” The tour will kick off on October 9th in Norfolk, VA with fellow Fearless bands All Time Low, The Maine, and Mayday Parade. The band is also gearing up to be featured on MTV U, for the fall semester season of “The Freshman 5.”
Shh. Just Go With It takes life’s lemons and squeezes them into pure rock n roll joy.
Every Avenue formed in 2003 and released their first self-titled record later that same year. Since then, the mid-western quintet has managed to keep a positive outlook on the music scene.
In an industry that some say has gone bleak and dark in the last year, Every Avenue sheds encouraging light to the scene by keeping fun and enthusiasm in their music, their live show, and most importantly, their attitude. After every set the band plays you will always find the boys talking and interacting with their fans.
“We try to stay fun and energetic and do it differently than other bands,” said drummer Michael Govaere.
Music aside, at the shows there is one thing everyone is guaranteed to become addicted to: the pump jump. This signature move created by the boys themselves is rocking faces and taking names. When asked about the future and what it means for the band, guitarist Jimmie Deeghan simply says, “We’d rather be touring and playing music than anything else.” Fans can expect to see that attitude reflected in every single second of any Every Avenue performance.
In addition to their ever increasing tour schedule, Every Avenue has solidified their status in the music world by employing the services of Keith Lazorchek with Absolute Management, adding them to an impressive roster that already includes All-Time Low and Set Your Goals. They will travel the country with the help of booking agents David Galea (Paramore, The Higher) and Jeremy Holgerson (Aiden, Alesana).
Hard times and set backs have done nothing to stop these young pop-rockers from making their dreams come true. Their fun approach to music is fresh and unique, and paired together with a dedicated fan base the band has accomplished so much in such a short period of time.
“Hopes and dreams and memories, you can’t take away from me,” David Ryan, lead vocalist.
