AVEDIS is an unyielding rock band from the Milwaukee area, combining intricate arrangements, evocative lyrics and a dynamic live show.

Formed in 2007 by frontman and songwriter Corey Nietupski, the trio released their first album Total Control and began to garner a strong regional following, touring throughout the Midwest. To date, they’ve brought their explosive live show to such renowned rock venues as The Brat Stop (Kenosha, WI). The Frequency (Madison, WI) and Milwaukee’s annual Summerfest.

The band’s latest EP Red Sea was released in January 2011. The 4-song collection showcases a diverse musicality, from the thundering rock groove of “Mer de Mesonges” to the more acoustic, melody-driven “Bound Together.”

“It’s a concept album,” Nietupski explains, “that  uses the color red to depict the different emotions one can feel when being in a relationship or in love.”

Inspired by such alt-rock powerhouses as Chevelle, The Deftones and Sevendust, AVEDIS continues to create passionate rock music and win over an increasing legion of fans.
