Chemistry between all of the bandmates happened literally immediately. In fact, all five physically stood in the same room together for the very first time a mere two hours before their first ever live performance which, naturally, went off without a hitch. Following this, and within two months of the band fully forming, Arcade Avenue were already thinking about frequent gigging, recording and releasing a fully fledged EP, and setting up a summer tour for 2013.
Described by fans as f***ing great and, similarly, f***ing sick , Arcade Avenue were an immediate hit at their first show, drawing a large crowd (with Matt at the centre of it) and a party-rock atmosphere. Not many bands can boast shouts of encore! at their first show from complete strangers, but somehow Arcade Avenue managed it. Following on, the venue immediately asked the band to play again a month later, finally convincing the band that, maybe, they did have something good going here.
Future plans? The band is now due to enter the studio to record their first EP in September 2012, and then the plan is to get as much exposure as possible. Shows, shows and more shows will be the order of the day, with the aim to reach as many people as possible with their music. Keep an eye and both ears out, you ll be hearing from Arcade Avenue very soon.
