As people, Avenida are absolutely ridiculous; anybody who's ever met them can attest to this. On any given night, one is more likely than not to find Jon Bernstein, Mike Payne, Jeremy Bernstein, Tyler Gilbert, and Andrew Padilla playing pranks on each other or driving to the shore at 4am to buy "fat" sandwiches. Inside jokes abound with these guys, and with working song titles like "Your Child's Face Smells Like Cat Urine," one might think they don't take their musical careers seriously. That assessment couldn't be further from the truth.

As a band, Avenida are undoubtedly some of the most hardworking individuals on the scene today. With a handful of self-released EPs under their belt, Avenida has shared the stage with acts like Madina Lake, Monty Are I, Aiden, Escape The Fate and played venues like Starland Ballroom, School of Rock, and The Crocodile Rock Café as well as earned a spot at New Jersey's Warped Tour date three years in a row. Their determination and work ethic is unmatched by their peers; members have worked tirelessly to finance professional recordings as well as a full merchandise line. With nearly no professional assistance, Avenida has sold hundreds of records and received radio play from stations all over the tri-state area.

With the release of their "Take Control" EP, the Livingston, NJ quintet delivers catchy, yet punishing riffage, skillful drumming, and incomparable vocals. They've garnered attention from dozens of local and national acts, so expect to see these boys on the road, in your town, and on your radio within the coming months.
