The South's most prized punk band is back with a collection of twelve songs that they're calling "Front Porch Stories". A bit of South shines through with the use of a slide guitar on one track and violin (fiddle?) on another. Don't get the wrong idea, Avail still brings some of the fiercest punk rock/sing along/karate-dance hits to the table! "Front Porch Stories" is a chronicle of just that, personal stories that would be told amongst friends while sharing large bottles of beer, on a front porch. Friendship, love, life struggle, train-hopping, and betrayal, are all key lyrical topics on the album. Drummer Ed Trask did the artwork for the album, paintings and all!
