Hello Cruel World EP

by The Avant Garden

Hello Cruel World is the debut EP from Nashville rock band The Avant Garden. The title comes from the first line of the introductory track, Counter Culture Party – a call for unity in non-conformity. This EP is the result of nearly two years of rewrites, recording and a lifetime of experiences.
