During a live show at Birmingham’s Yardbird Jazz Club on June 13th, Cantaloop will perform ‘Avalanching‘ live for the first time ahead of its official release on June 16th. And the duo will also give the new single a London launch when they perform at London’s Brixton Jamm with none other than Craig Charles on Saturday June 19th.
Already tickets for both events are selling well with early indications that Cantaloop will have a large crowd to perform their new single to on both occasions.” – event spokesperson
The pre-release of ‘Avalanching’ has already been marked by airplay on BBC Radio 6 with the single receiving a host of positive reviews.
The melancholy lament tells the story of one of Cantaloop’s founding members who lost his life to cancer last year. He left a footprint on the people and family he knew and ‘Avalanching’ is Cantaloop’s own way of celebrating his memory and his legacy. The track hop, skips, and waltzes through his life. The last stand blows from the trumpet, signaling the death of his lullaby, are a touching show of friendship and the impact he still has on the group today.
Justin Metti of Cantaloop said he was looking forward to making ‘Avalanching’ readily available for fans with the two launch events.
“We are really proud of our new single and it really does demonstrate how far we have come as artists,” he said. “We can’t wait to perform the song in front of our fans in both London and Birmingham. We’ve performed at the Yardbird in Birmingham before and we always have a fantastic time there, and we can’t wait to perform alongside Craig Charles who will be another great name to add to our list of friends.” – Justin Metti
‘Avalanching’ is released on June 16th 2014 and will be available to download from iTunes.
