With their new album out later this year, they are here to serve you what’s missing in today’s music climate: classic rock with energy, balls, melody and emotion.

Formed in Gothenburg in 2006

Danger Avenue was formed by guitarist and songwriter Thomas Van Shaw and Criss David in Gothenburg, Sweden in 2006.

The vision of the band was to play classic melodic rock ‘n’ roll in the vein of Bruce Springsteen, (early) Foreigner, FM, Nightranger, The Who, Boston among others.

Today, Danger Avenue are writing the classic rock hits that were never were released in 1978.

EP released in 2008

2008 saw the release of the band’s first self-titled EP, which sold out a whole six times(!) at Ginza, the largest online music retailer in Scandinavia. The band also received some airplay on national Swedish radio.

Long Overdue debut album in 2010

After fine-tuning their songwriting, Danger Avenue released their debut album “Long Overdue” in 2010. The album got great reviews and was shipped to over 35 countries.

The band promoted the album by playing various gigs over Sweden, including opening slots for bands such as Bullet, Evergrey and H.E.A.T.
