E1 Music (formerly Koch Records) has set a June 2 release date for the debut album from the Lincoln, Nebraska heavy metal band DIRTFEDD, entitled "The American Nightmare". The CD was produced by SLIPKNOT percussionist M. Shawn Crahan (Clown), who describes DIRTFEDD's music as "right here right now." He adds, "They are from the Midwest, which gives them a big advantage in how to shape their own vision, rather than get caught up in clichéd scenes… I personally cannot wait until we give this art to the world. It's time things change.”

"The American Nightmare" includes the tracks "Body Bag", "No One Gets Left Behind" and the live show favorite and radio single "Salute". Revolver magazine says "the group alternates between galloping metalcore and groovy shake-your-fanny rawk, but what really sets the band apart is their tasteful use of melody."

DIRTFEDD just began a U.S. tour with metal juggernauts SLIPKNOT and KORN in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 8 and will stay on the road throughout the summer.
