The video was shot mainly in Staithes, which is where Kane lives and grew up, and where we rehearse and put gigs on at The Captain Cook Inn. Nice seaside village with lovely alleyways – which we enjoyably ran round until 4am. The locals seemed to enjoy the thrill of the filming, judging from the twitching curtains and glut of late night dog walkers. One unfortunate, wheezing Labrador was walked 8 times in the space of an hour, when the shoot was at a particular peak of high action. One more drone would have been the end for Fido”

The band released their colossal single Porcelain earlier this year, which garnered support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, 6Music, Radio X, KEXP, NME, Upset and Louder.
Avalanche Party is the creation of brothers Jordan and Joe, who spent summers in their youth in the Yorkshire dales, camping by firelight, and their winters snowed into their isolated hill top home with nothing but the sounds of Bo Diddley, Link Wray, Wilko Johnson and Jimi Hendrix to keep them company, the boys played their first gig at the age of twelve, and music is ingrained in their being.
Live is where Avalanche Party reign. Their brand of feral garage-punk is intense and immediate, brimming with an urgency that explodes on the stage, every note played through white knuckles, every word spat through gritted teeth. Vocalist Jordan Bell fearlessly parades amongst the crowd, supported by the captivating sonic backbone that is guitarist Jared Thorpe, bassist Joe Bell, Kane Waterfield on drums and Glen Adkins on keys. This undeniable musical chemistry has placed the band at the forefront of the British underground, with recent live highlights including Electric Fields, 2000 Trees, Tramlines and Live At Leeds.
