I Am the Avalanche
Brooklyn, NY, United States
I Am the Avalanche is a punk rock band from Brooklyn, New York. The group's name comes from a lyric written by Vinnie Caruana for a song which was later discarded. The phrase also appears in the poem "Oh, Immobility, Death's Vast Associate" by Stephen Dobyns however Caruana maintains that this is a coincidence, and that he was not aware of the poem until after naming the band. History: I Am the Avalanche 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.
