see Avale, v
Origin: [OE. availen, fr. F. (L. ad) + valoir to be worth, fr. L. valere to be strong, to be worth. See Valiant.]
Avail was a punk rock band from Richmond, Virginia. Originally from Reston, Va. the band formed in 1987, its members including Joe Banks, Doug Crosby, Brien Stewart, and Mikey Warstler. The only original remaining member, guitar player Joe Banks, teamed up with rival band LDK's Tim Barry. They moved to Richmond in 1990, and soon, after numerous line up changes, put together a solid lineup to release their first album "Satiate" in 1992. Many of their lyrics center around Richmond. The band released six studio albums. The Band has never officially disbanded, but has not released new material or played live since 2008.
