Arizona Rock Band American Standards Release ‘The Vagrant’ From Their Volatile New EP DOPAMINE DEALER

Phoenix, AZ hardcore punk band American Standards have premiered a rowdy new song via titled ‘The Vagrant’. The release is part of a series of singles that collectively make up the ep DOPAMINE DEALER. With aggressive instrumentals and defiant vocals, the energetic track is delivered with an urgency to match the intensity of bands like Turnstile, Refused, Snapcase, Deadguy, and Knocked Loose. 

Brandon Kellum, singer of American Standards said:

There are goobers in your local music scene that are paying for people to write their songs, paying for positive reviews/reaction videos, paying for streams/views, and then trying to flex on social media like they’re a rock star.

Somewhere artists are loosing their way. They’ve got the motivation but lack the inspiration. The Vagrant is about bringing sincerity back into the art we create.”

DOPAMINE DEALER is out now via Manic Kat Records. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Bandcamp.

DOPAMINE DEALER Track listing:

  1. the Dealer
  2. the Tourist 
  3. the Vagrant

Sometimes strong emotions can make you lose focus. That’s not the case for Arizona based metallic hardcore band, American Standards. After losing their guitarist to suicide and shortly after the vocalists father to cancer, the band founded in 2011 released their most emotional and socially poignant album to date. Now more focused than ever, American Standards has hit the road playing shows with bands such as Knocked Loose, ‪Every Time I Die, and Norma Jean. Their mantra; “Don’t wait for things to happen. Make them happen.” Heralded by Metal Injection as “one of strongest bands in the realm of hardcore and metalcore this year” and with features on Alternative Press, Decibel, Lambgoat and Revolver, people are taking notice.
