"Heroes of Rock"

By: David Grimes

A trip with Avid Addiction was in store for the crowd next, as the aptly-named Greeneville quartet blasted into the venue like a rocket sled on rails. With the tremelo and vibrato vocal of Randy Bettis taking front and center, the string- stretching guitar heroism of Clay Cooley provided the energy. Mike Serra's bass was strong in the mix, deftly moving to a more trebly groove as demanded on the tune "Bat Country", before pulling the pin on "Sacrifice", a blistering tune that found Rob Murray's machine-gun snare and hollow-dynamic toms right on target. - South Knox Seymour Times


Giving Everything To You
Change Your Fate



Avid Addiction is composed of four guys from east Tennessee with a passion for creating highly energetic, hard rock original music. With a wide range of influences from 80's and 90's rock and metal such as Metallica, Motley Crue, Iron Maiden, and Ozzy to name a few to modern day influences such as Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, and Godsmack, Avid Addiction's music is greatly influenced from a wide angle of sources. This wide range of influences gives Avid Addiction's music the fast energetic twist with fast melodic guitar solos, screams and harmonizing back-up vocals, double kicked drum beats, music filling bass lines and an overall rhythmic groove that keeps crowds in East Tennesse coming back for more. Avid Addiction currently plays several clubs in East Tennesse and Southwest Virginia regularly. A few of these clubs are Phil's Place, Woodstone Deli, Poor Richard's and The 5 O'clock. As Avid Addiction continues to move outward we thank you for your continued support of our journey.
