It is not often that a band comes along that can be compared to any number of bands yet embody each of them equally. This is what Tucson's THE AMERICAN BLACK LUNG brings to the table. The group's sound is part early BLACK FLAG, part IGGY POP, part THE BRONX, and part THE HELLACOPTERS. "An incendiary mix of hardcore, hard rock, with a dollop of garage rock and a sliver of metal thrown in for good measure," says All Music Guide. Having recently signed with Laguna Beach's Uprising Records, THE AMERICAN BLACK LUNG is poised to release its sophomore effort, "Sudden Departure of Vultures", on July 10.
Since forming in 2003, THE AMERICAN BLACK LUNG has toured North America and Europe numerous times with the likes of MXPX, FURTHER SEEMS FOREVER, and VALIENT THOR, among many others. This summer looks to be no different as the band will be taking their captivating, sweat-drenched live show on the road with THE BLED and then return to the Warped Tour for the second year in a row.
THE AMERICAN BLACK LUNG came together as a group of friends looking to pay homage to their music that has influenced them and molded them into the people they are today. The band is comprised of Johnny Detroit (guitars), Dusty Rhoads (bass), Easy E (guitars), W. Moon (drums), and Diamond Rhino shedding on vocals.
