About:

I Am the Avalanche is an indie rock band from Merrick, New York. The group was formed by vocalist Vinnie Caruana after the break–up of his previous band The Movielife, and followed his short stint playing in Head Automatica.

The other members of I Am the Avalanche are drummer Brett "Ratt" Romnes, guitarists Michael Ireland and Brandon Swanson (formerly of Further Seems Forever) and bassist Kellen Robson. Aside from handling vocal duties Caruana also plays guitar on certain songs such as "This Is Dungeon Music" giving the band a three–guitar attack. This is in line with the band's heavier, slower sound compared to the members' previous efforts.
