Published Feb 15, 2018Beloved Massachusetts hardcore band American Nightmare (a.k.a. Give Up the Ghost) have been reunited since 2011, but it's taken them seven years to complete a comeback album. Now, finally, the self-titled LP is here.
American Nightmare will surely divide fans (our own review said the album is "not convincing, nor consistent"), but you can decide for yourself with a stream of the album in full below.
In a statement, frontman Wes Eisold previously said, "In making this record we had one goal: To make a hardcore punk album that was true to American Nightmare, who we were then and who we are now. No filler, just existential poetic venom. This is ground zero, a new life for the band."
Rise Records has dropped American Nightmare in full today. You can stream the album in full below, and find the band's upcoming tour dates here.
