about

Comprised of members from punk stalwarts In-DK and Choking Victim, American Distress explores more mature and complexly musical environ than its label forefathers, managing to adeptly and simultaneously reference seminal punk/HC bands as well as the future of blastbeat punk rock. Political without being preachy, American Distress's lyrical rants range from America's compulsive consumer-based culture to defining one's self through fierce independence and personal responsibility. Driving guitar lines are punctuated by relentless percussive elements that are a far cry from the stark angst of earlier Tent City efforts, and draw more from hardcore punk influence like the brutal soundscapes created by bands like Black Flag and "Animosity"-era C.O.C. Originally formed in 2001, American Distress's debut s/t album is comprised of new material plus 4 tracks reworked from their earlier demo EP, with the help of their new and potent singer Xray.
