Hardcore vanguard American Nightmare have returned with a new two-song EP, out today digitally and on February 14th on vinyl. The Life Support EP is released in conjunction with American Nightmare’s 20th Anniversary Tour in February of 2020 which’ll take the iconic band from coast to coast with CEREMONY supporting on select shows – tickets are on sale now, and tour dates can be found below.
Featuring a new track (“Life Support”) as well as a Lemonheads cover (“Left for Dead”), the Life Support EP is the first new release from American Nightmare since their 2018 self-titled album. The A-side contains the title track ,and confidently expands upon the jangly proto-punk leanings hinted at on previous releases while retaining American Nightmare’s trademark angst. Having covered The MC5, Black Flag and the Germs this should come as no surprise – the B-side features a fantastic rendition of the classic “Left For Dead” originally recorded by Boston’s The Lemonheads. This is a must-have release for any fan of American Nightmare.
Catch American Nightmare on the road in support of the Life Support EP, as well as the 20th Anniversary re-issue of their seminal debut album Year One, this February. Pre-order the vinyl version of Life Support here.
