Interview with Avers: DC Area Deli's Band of the Month.

Richmond's Avers won our Band of the Month Poll for the first half of April, and it's no surprise. Their debut album, Empty Light will be officially released on April 22nd (this Tuesday!), and it's a fantastic kaleidoscope of sound, light and psychedelia. The lead single, title track "Empty Light," is a gorgeous summer morning (something we've all been waiting for for far too long), and Avers' rocking live shows, skillfully played electric guitars, tasteful pedal-work, and pounding drums, have amped a growing fan base that's become impatient to take home a piece of the band. They're everything you want out of hard-rocking and hard working indie-rock. I spoke with Adrian Olsen about the band's formation, the Richmond scene, and the future, and you can read the interview here.

Avers is going on a short tour in support of the release, starting with a show on Wednesday, April 23rd, at the Black Cat backstage (with The Jackfields and The Beanstalk Library).
