Download the New American Sharks‘ Single ‘Overdrive’ on iTunes
Stoner metal fuzz, plus punk rock speed and simplicity. American Sharks have, to amazing effect, created this sound on their self-titled debut album coming at you September 17th via The End Records.
The new American Sharks record features nine track and clocks in just a few ticks more than 20 minutes, making it a perfect soundtrack for a morning commute as long as the listener can resist the urge to put the pedal to the floor during “Overdrive.” Recorded quickly in four days at Austin’s Fifth Street Studios by Bryan Richie, the album’s sound and pace was obvious almost from the start with first takes on Cornetti’s drum tracks serving as the bedrock for the band’s sound.
The band will be on tour with The Sword and Clutch running from October 27th to November 23rd. American Sharks will also be opening for Godflesh at their NYC show on 10/19 and will perform in this year’s CMJ festival.
