Avenue Lie born in 2013 from the ashes of Homerun, an italian hard rock band that published 2 albums (2008 Don’t Stop for Sweet Poison records and Avalon Marquee / 2011 Black world for Fastball records) with a great success in Northern Europe and Japan, with a new artistic collaboration between Valerio Castiglioni and William Battiston, ex guitarist and drummer of the band.
The first album “GENESIS” released in October 2015, was composed and arranged only by Valerio (that recorded all vocals, guitars and bass tracks) and William (on drums and percussions), featuring Walter Borrelli (ex Homerun) on keyboards and electronics. In February 2015 they signed with Alpha & Omega Management, where they also recorded the debut album.

The “GENESI” tour begins on November 28th 2015 at Rock’N’Roll Club Rho (MI) and continues with a series of Italian gig including the Pain of Salvation and M.A. Batio tour support.
