We’ve got a real, genuine treat for you today that, as a lifelong Boston-area resident and scene-adjacent member, I’m fired up to be able to…new music from Avoid One Thing!
We last heard from the highly-regarded side project featuring Joe Gittleman (Mighty Mighty Bosstones), Amy Griffin (The Raging Teens, Darkbuster, Jittery Jack) and John Lynch (The Neighborhoods) all the way back in 2004 with the release of their sophomore album, Chopstick Bridge. After more than a decade-and-a-half of good times and bad times and all things in between, the band’s long-awaited third album is finally upon us. It’s called Right Here Where You Left Me, and it’s due out a mere two days from now (Friday the 13th) on Big Rig Records.
To give you a taste of what’s in store, we’re bringing you the brand new track, “Better Left Alone.” Here’s how Gittleman himself sums up the song’s theme: “I don’t know if this song’s apology will ever reach its target or be accepted. I hope so.” Check it out below!
Pre-order’s for Right Here Where You Left Me are available here; you can also check out the album’s title track right here! You can also snag tickets to the album release show coming up November 16th at Boston’s Great Scott right here on Friday!
