American Sharks - 2013 - American Sharks

American Sharks are a three piece punk rock band from Austin, Texas, America. American Sharks is their debut album. They are currently on tour with Clutch and The Sword. American Sharks play a garage infused brand of punk rock that takes tongue in cheek punk and runs it through modern filters of bands like Torche and The Demonics.

 If The Ramones smoked more dope and had kids with The Stooges that listened to Leatherface, those kids would sound something like this. The album is a little front loaded but all these songs are solid jams and this album is over far too quickly.  Highlights include Iron Lungs!, Freak Out, Overdrive, Cocaine, 11:11
