In early 2012, Gone Avery released their first E.P. “Left and Forgotten.” The album was a way to mark the bands first big entrance into the music scene posing the question: Will we triumph, or be left and forgotten? The true answer lies within the success of growing as individuals, playing to enormous crowds of energetic fans, and establishing themselves in the many well-known venues of Los Angeles and Orange County. The album is for sale on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby and was recorded with producer and engineer Adrian Alvarado of the Grammy Foundation and Grey Area Studios in North Hollywood.
In 2013, the band began their follow up to Left and Forgotten, a series of single releases that reflects the direction and style that Gone Avery has taken. The music is energetic, with alternative rock and pop influences, and an intensity that can be felt at live shows. The band looks to this new music as a focal point of what’s to come, and the style that will represent Gone Avery’s future endeavors.
