American Nightmare announce 10 inch, share new single

American Nightmare

Travis Shinn

American Nightmare (AKA Give Up The Ghost) have announced its first-ever 10-inch vinyl release dubbed Dedicated to the Next World. "Self Check-Out", the lead single from the four-track record, premiered today (January 23rd) via Heartworm Press. See its lyric video below.

Founded in 2000, American Nightmare went through a breakup in 2004, then reformed in 2012, playing incendiary shows and releasing a self-titled album in 2018 along with an EP in 2020. A live recording of the upcoming release of American Nightmare was made at Mystic Valley Recording Studio in Boston by drummer Alex Garcia-Rivera.

Pre-orders for Dedicated to the Next World are now available here. You can find limited vinyl variants from Deathwish Inc., Bridge 9, and Revelation Records.

I never thought we'd see a day when Give Up The Ghost was better

anonymous 1/23/2023 8:27:15 AM

^^ We're Down Til We're Underground is a damn good record.

Saw these guys at some To Die For rec hall show, maybe 2002ish. Pretty cool.

anonymous 1/23/2023 8:38:26 AM

riding on the coattails of another genre.

anonymous 1/23/2023 8:51:21 AM

This band is literally awful.

At some point over the past decade this band determined they could just phone lo-fi punk in and the people who loved them would still clamber over themselves to fan boy over it. It's not working but it doesn't matter anyway because dudes primary cash cow is Cold Cave anyway.

anonymous 1/23/2023 9:42:54 AM

21 years ago, i saw this band open for Hatebreed and Converge.

anonymous 1/23/2023 10:16:24 AM

American this American that no one cares

Bortslob 1/23/2023 10:28:13 AM

Joe Biden is the real American nightmare

anonymous 1/23/2023 10:39:09 AM

They reunited in 2011. All the author needed to do was Google or check Wikipedia to find that out.

anonymous 1/23/2023 10:48:52 AM

Pedo with dementia is American nightmare

anonymous 1/23/2023 10:49:34 AM

cold cave was good. AN has always been softcore

I have it on good authority that their drummer is the most hated bassist in Philly.

anonymous 1/23/2023 11:42:48 AM

This sucks ass, but I guess Wes needs more money to buy more hideous Rick Owens clothes

anonymous 1/23/2023 11:44:08 AM

I know Wes was born missing a hand, but was he born without ears? This is terrible, same with most of the last album

anonymous 1/23/2023 11:45:55 AM

Give Up the Gimmick

anonymous 1/23/2023 11:51:03 AM

Hey Rick with my 10inch and your 10inch, want to make a split EP if you know what I'm sayin?

VodkaVeins 1/23/2023 1:29:26 PM

anonymous 1 hour ago I know Wes was born missing a hand, That's why he's so pissed at Self Check-Out. Shit's hard to use one handed.

anonymous 1/23/2023 2:21:20 PM

I'll take his other hand at the show

anonymous 1/23/2023 2:21:57 PM

He needs a hook like Roy munson

anonymous 1/23/2023 2:33:53 PM

This is the Soundtrack to Saying we're poor

anonymous 1/23/2023 4:14:29 PM

Cold cave sucks so does this band

anonymous 1/23/2023 8:15:11 PM

anonymous 11 hours ago Saw these guys at some To Die For rec hall show, maybe 2002ish. Pretty cool. I saw them open for Converge on the Jane Doe tour, same era. I thought their album at that time was bland but when I saw them live I was floored. People that weren't there don't know how intense AN used to be.

anonymous 1/23/2023 9:48:23 PM

38 year old graphic designers are stoked

anonymous 1/24/2023 4:11:54 AM

Who on here hasn't seen a bunch of long-gone bands? It doesn't make you special. Also, I saw them like half a dozen times back then. Fellate me.

anonymous 1/24/2023 4:48:57 AM

This is terrible, Wes should just give up the ghost.

anonymous 1/24/2023 1:34:15 PM

^A swing and a miss

anonymous 1/24/2023 4:24:47 PM

Italian hoagie 10" > American Nightmare 10"

anonymous 1/26/2023 9:07:20 AM

This is terrible, Wes should just give up the ghost. Lol
