Listen to “End Of America” Today
AMERICAN TERROR, which blends punk and metal for an infectious sound, has revealed a new single, “End Of America,” available today.
The track, a wildly fierce takedown of the current state of American politics, arrives just before the highly controversial U.S. election date and will be is available on Spotify and all major digital platforms. A video for the track will be released next month.
“’End Of America’ represents the state of our country right now,” says vocalist Brad Cox. “No matter what side you’re on or what you believe, everyone is pissed off and feeling this way. 2020 is the year of picking your stone and casting it. History is being rewritten in so many ways. People are passionate again and willing to fight for what they believe. ‘End of America’ is the anthem for standing up to bullshit and making a change.”
AMERICAN TERROR’s critically-acclaimed debut record, Influencer, has tallied up more than 150,000 Spotify streams since its release in late May, when it arrived on the heels of the success of the singles “Judgement” and “She’s A Bitch.” These two tracks leading up to the full-length release quickly built momentum for the band, thanks to features on Spotify’s editorial and algorithmic playlists, in addition to spots on hundreds of user playlists. Prominent rock media outlets took notice and covered the band’s progress, including Revolver, KNAC, Blabbermouth, BraveWords and Ultimate-Guitar. The band recently made “Influencer” available in translucent red vinyl LP, CD and HD download formats, which are available to purchase at their official web store at https://americanterrorband.com/shop.
Influencer was released by EMP Label Group, the label founded by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson with industry executive Thom Hazaert. Influencer was followed up by a hard-hitting, genre-bending remix of “Judgement,” featuring legendary rapper Sticky Fingaz, who is known for his group Onyx’s hit “Slam” in the ‘90s and his comeback feature on Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP, as well as being a 2020 ASCAP songwriter award-winner for his work with Travis Scott.
Influencer and “End of America” were engineered, produced and mixed by vocalist Brad Cox at his Black Paw Studios in Lawrenceville, GA. Brad is partners in the publishing company Black Paw Music with legendary producer Mike Clink (Guns N’ Roses, Megadeth, Metallica). Influencer and “End of America” were mastered by Troy Glessner (Disturbed) at Spectre Studios in Seattle.
“2020 has been a crazy year for everyone and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this,” Cox says. “Everyone felt this in so many different ways. For my mental health I decided it was time to focus on writing and recording a new album. ‘End Of America’ was the first song to come out of this. After that, the rest of the upcoming album basically wrote itself. “
AMERICAN TERROR began as a studio project featuring members of Skid Row (drummer Rob Hammersmith), Sugar Ray (ex-bassist Murphy Karges), Phunk Junkeez (DJ Soulman) and Grayson Manor (singer Brad Cox and guitarist Pat Valley). However, upon releasing their debut record and receiving highly-enthusiastic feedback from new fans and press outlets, they decided to continue their path forward with touring and multiple releases in mind, leaving Brad, Pat, Rob and fellow Grayson Manor alumnus GK Via to take over those duties.
