Today, FADER Magzine premiered AVAN LAVA’s “Leave It All Behind” HERE, calling it “a hot, beep-house cut” and “your weekend club jam”. Please feel free to share the track here via soundcloud HERE, plus it’s made available today as part of the iTunes exclusive pre-order HERE, which includes the bonus track “Why Can’t I Fall In Love”.

The band told FADER Magazine: “Sometimes you’ve got your nose pressed so hard to the grindstone that you fail to look up. When you finally take a minute to gain perspective, you’re not where you set out to be. ‘Leave It All Behind’ is about having the courage to start over, even if that means losing everything. It’s about making the space for freedom in your life.”
AVAN LAVA is an American, New York based, dance pop band consisting of producer/drummer Ian Pai, producer/keyboard/guitar Le Chev, and lead singer TC Milan.Today, they’re proud to announce their upcoming Make It Real EP which will be released on March 31st via Atlas Chair. The label is co-founded by JD Samson (MEN, Le Tigre) and home to Baby Alpaca, The Aikiu and bottoms. The last track they revealed, “Last Night”HERE, was championed by BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Interview Magazine, Paper Magazine and Perez Hilton for instance. The trio has built up a cult-following for their over-the-top, one of kind live experiences, which include extra live members, dancers and production worthy of awards shows. At the end of February, they’ll go on a North American tour, which will include a stop at Austin’s SXSW.

Last year they toured Brazil, played at Lancôme’s Paris Fashion Week event at Palais Brongniart and packed David Lynch’s Club Silencio in Paris as well as a thrilling show at Club Koko for NME in London.

AVAN LAVA frontman TC Milan told Paper Magazine: “We know our fans come to dance and lose themselves for a night, so we do everything we can to get them to that point. We’ve built a custom light show, choreographed big dance breaks, wear matching outfits that always change show-to-show. Even when we were playing 100 cap rooms, we were hiring dancers and shooting confetti canons into the crowd — we want every show to be the best night of your life.”

Past musical collaborations have been with Ssion, Fischerspooner, Cat Power (live programming), Lemonade, Frankie Rose (producer). To strut your stuff on your own catwalk listen to their single “Last Night” HERE and all their music on soundcloud here.

In 2012 Flex Fantasy EP prompted sold out shows in New York City and a US tour with band Little Boots. Noisey raved, “You need these guys in your life!” The Flex Fantasy excitement saw the release of 3 videos and a collaboration with world-renowned photographers Inez & Vinoodh to compose music for several of the duo’s fashion campaign films.
