This article is about the band named Avail. For a definition of the word avail, see the Wiktionary entry avail.
Avail is a punk band from Richmond, Virginia. Originally from Northern Virginia, the band formed in 1987, its members including Joe Banks, Doug Crosby, Brian Stewart and Mikey Warstler.
The only original remaining member, guitar player Joe Banks, teamed up with rival band LDK's (Learning Disabled Kids) Tim Barry.
They moved to Richmond in 1990, and soon, after numerous line up changes, put together a solid lineup to release their first album in 1992.
They play punk music, with heartfelt lyrics and melodic breakdowns.
Many of their lyrics are about Richmond.
Tim mentions in the interview "let's just say it's a thing of the past"
Avail self-released their first LP, Satiate on Catheter-Assembly Records.
It was later re-reカードローン比較leased by Lookout! Records.
They released several studio releases on Lookout! and then went on to Fat Wreck Chords for One Wrench and Front Porch Stories.
Most recently, they have signed on with Jade Tree Records who has recently re-released the Avail albums Dixie, 4am Friday, and Over the James.
Tim Barry is currently writing and performing solo music.
Joe Banks, along with former members Erik Larson and Chuck McCauley, formed The Ghost Run in 2009.
Joe Banks, Chuck McCauley and Erik Larson have also teamed up in the band Freeman.
Avail is still something of a legend in the punk and hardcore scene in Richmond.
Tattoos, graffiti, and sidewalk impressions bearing the "dixie" image are quite common.
A sidewalk impression of the image is easily found at the corner of Brunswick St. and Floyd Ave. in the Fan.
