The last year has been a huge year for Marysville, Michigan natives Every Avenue and with their upcoming release “Shh. Just Go With It” hitting stores February 19, 2008 and they show no signs of slowing down.
Forming in 2003 and self-releasing their first self-titled record later that same year, the mid-western quintet have had a positive outlook on the music scene since day one. “We try to stay fun and energetic and do it differently than other bands,” says drummer Michael Govaere. In an industry that some say has gone bleak and dark in the last year, Every Avenue keeps fun and enthusiasm in their music, their live show, and most importantly, their attitude.
In the summer of 2007 Every Avenue was finally rewarded for their hard work and dedication. Fearless Records saw into the hearts of the young musicians, recognized their strong fan base, and decided to sign the band and release their debut EP entitled “AH!” on August 14, 2007. “It felt amazing signing to Fearless because it felt like we were becoming part of a family rather than just signing a record deal,” says David, “we knew they were going to work just as hard for us as we would for them. We could not be more proud.”
“AH!” not only captured the hearts of fans everywhere but also the attention of producers Zach Odom and Kenneth Mount (Cartel, Mayday Parade). The band went into the studio with Odom and Mount in what the boys dubbed “Hot”lanta, Georgia in early fall 2007 where they wrote and recorded their debut full-length Shh. Just Go With It, which is scheduled to hit store shelves everywhere on February 19, 2008. “We are really happy with the way the album came out,” says guitarist Joshua Randall, “we were able to try a lot of things we always wanted to. We can’t wait to see what the fans think.”
