Phoenix, AZ hardcore punk band American Standards have premiered an uncompromising new song via PunkNews.org titled ‘The Vagrant’. The release is part of a series of hostile singles that collectively make up the ep DOPAMINE DEALER. With aggressive instrumentals and harsh vocals, the volatile track is delivered with an urgent rebellion similar to bands like Turnstile, Refused, and Snapcase.
Brandon Kellum, vocalist of American Standards said:
“There are goobers in your local music scene that are paying for streams, paying for positive reviews, paying to play national shows, and then trying to flex on social media like they’re rock stars.
Somewhere musicians are loosing their way. They’ve got motivation but lack inspiration. The Vagrant is about bringing sincerity back to music.”
DOPAMINE DEALER is out now via Manic Kat Records.
