AVOID Drop New Single + Music Video “My World” And Announce New Upcoming Album ‘Cult Mentality’

by Charley Johns
One of 2021’s hottest breakout bands, Seattle’s five-piece AVOID, has dropped their latest single and music video “My World”. Not only that, but the band has also announced their forthcoming new album ‘Cult Mentality’ due for release on Friday, October 14 (via Thriller Records). Speaking on today’s release, vocalist Benny Scholl commented:
“We’re so stoked to share this track with y’all. From the second we started writing it this has been one we’ve been excited about it. It’s a song to turn up loud and say “fuck it” to anything getting you down. In my humble opinion, it also shows off every side of the band and gives you a taste of a little bit of everything that’s coming with future releases. Blast this shit, and welcome to My World.”
Prior to today, AVOID previously shared COWABUNGA and Split (Kill It) which together have totaled over 237,000 streams on Spotify alone and over 108,000 views on YouTube.

Engaging, edgy, erratic, irreverent, wild, vibrant, fun… there’s certainly no shortage of adjectives to describe AVOID and their quest to fuel that feeling of being a part of something.
Evoking a nostalgia for the kind of music that seeps into your soul, the Seattle five-piece channel the musical legacy synonymous with their hometown while blissfully genre-hopping to create something entirely new. Good times with a message of inclusivity, with a drive to bring passion, innovation and provocation back to heavy music and pull in the community around it, AVOID crackle with the energy of a young act ready to take the world by storm.
While the world fell silent in 2020, the band seized the moment to make noise with the release of their attention-grabbing EP The Burner – and it got LOUD. Securing a sponsorship with NASCAR, the band had their music and band-branded vehicle in the official video game. Singer Benny Scholl went viral with his accidentally acapella rendition of the National Anthem at the NASCAR Vegas race, endearing himself to sports commentator Jim Rome who ran with coverage of the event for weeks.
New tracks “COWABUNGA” and “Split (Kill It)” are the start of something important, something defining – and AVOID are bringing everyone along for the ride. Hold on tight, it’s about to get weird.
