AVAST! are an indie-rock three piece from Dundee, Scotland originally consisting of Nico Weststeijn, Andrew Cook and Donald Smart. Notably, two members of the group also play in fellow Scottish band Stapleton and share a few similarities in their melodic, multi-tempo assault. Recently their lineup has also seen Gregor Philp (who currently also plays in Deacon Blue) join their ranks. Their music is sometimes likened to bands such as Red Animal War, Spy Vs Spy and Braid.
