Avarus are a four piece metal band from Blackpool, UK, formed in 2015. Whilst growing up in Blackpool Lucas Fletcher and Tim Nelson formed a band called Insomnia, they mainly focused on playing covers but wanted to go further. Eventually Insomnia came to an end. Lucas, still enthusiastic to create music of his own, soon got in contact with bass player and vocalist Mikey Jenkins who introduced Lucas to Becky Slater the drummer, This created a whole new feel to the band which soon took the name “Avarus.”
Since the four have been together they wrote and released two EP’s, self titled and ‘Limbo’ the second EP. ‘Limbo’ really shows how they developed as a band and as their own musicians compared to the first 3-track EP which showed the very early stages of their presence as a band.
After the second studio e.p. ‘Limbo’ Guitarist Tim Nelson parted ways with the band due to personal reasons and Avarus quickly replaced him with a childhood friend of Mikey, Richard Jodrell, lead guitarist. Currently with a growing fan base on their e.p Limbo and the brand new record ‘Hope Is All We’ve Got’ with their young age and a different approach to metal music Avarus are making a massive impact on their home city and around the whole of the UK.
