Dead American, a four piece group out of Southern California, debuted in 2018 with the desire to tap into the nostalgic sound of 2000s post-hardcore with their EP The Shape of Punk Is Dumb, a sound they expanded on with their first LP with Velocity Records New Nostalgia in 2022. 

After two years of supporting acts such as The Used, Beartooth, Pierce the Veil, Sleeping With Sirens, Scary Kids Scaring Kids and others to support New Nostalgia, Dead American return their sophomore album to double-down on the “new nostalgia” theme with the band pulling from a time even farther back and fundamental to the member’s approach to songwriting.
