about

Avenue Army began in 2009 among friends who shared a lifelong passion for writing and performing music. Originally from Minneapolis/Saint Paul, MN, the band quickly formulated their own unique sound that has been described as "Power Pop with huge balls", and began paying the Minnesota and Midwest Scene heavily between 2010 and 2013.

In Fall of 2013, Avenue Army released their debut album "Words With Action" and followed the release with several short Midwest tours and a national tour supporting 3 Pill Morning in the South and Southwest region of the U.S.

The band relocated to California in 2016 and has since changed it's entire line up with the exception of founding member Max Bergstrom, who is the band's lead singer and rhythm guitarist. Bergstrom is joined by Drew Smith on bass and backing vocals, Vaughn Esparza on Lead Guitar, and Jack Owens on drums. Avenue Army is currently supporting and playing tracks from their newest release, an EP titled “The Holding Steady EP which was released on Cleopatra Records in October of 2019. Avenue Army continues to build a strong following and keeps fans coming back with their solid live show. They have opened and toured with bands such as 3 Pill Morning, Eve to Adam, Saving Abel, Alien Ant Farm, The Ataris and Trapt.

lyrics

I am not well, stuck in this cell but
It’s not something that I care to discuss
I’ve been cheated, and misleaded but
It’s not something that I talk about
I’m a monster, an impostor but
It’s not something that I care to discuss
Under the street lights, impaired at all times but
It’s just something that I seem to do

Because it tastes like strange medicine
So please don’t take it away hey hey
And I’m strange and so sick of it
But I wouldn’t have it any other way
Go!

On this dark night
Fight and/or flight but
It’s not something that I care to discuss
Under the street signs
Blind in the sunlight but
It’s just something that I cannot change

Because it tastes like strange medicine
So please don’t take it away hey hey
And I’m strange and so sick of it
But I wouldn’t have it any other way
I will not have it any other way

I crawl deeper in my disease
That brings me to me knees
Over and over
And I stall further into the night
There’s isolation in my life
When I’m not sober

Because I need my strange medicine
So please don’t take it away hey hey
Gotta have that strange medicine
So I wouldn’t have it any other way

But it tastes like strange medicine
So please don’t take it away hey hey
And I long that strange medicine
So I wouldn’t have it any other way
No I will not have it any other way

I am not well, stuck in this cell.
