American Steel is back with new 7-inch

American Steel released a surprise new 7" this week, almost five year's after the band's most recent show together. Titled State of Grace, the 2-song 7" is out on Fat Wreck Chords and the band will be playing four live dates (Albany, CA and Chicago, IL) this month -- including tonight.


Bassist John Peck offered the following insight into the record:



Our last show together was at the beginning of 2014. We didn’t necessarily plan on taking such a long hiatus, but soon after that life got in the way (and John moved to Berlin, which certainly didn’t make it easier to get together spontaneously). We always stayed open to the possibility of playing shows, and the motivational combination of our old buddies the Larry Arms and Lisa from New Noise got us to commit.


Ryan and Rory each had some new songs, and as we started practicing again we threw these into the set. Both songs, coincidentally, are thematically pretty similar, and deal with our history together with a solid dose of Amsteel black humor. We’re looking forward to playing again, seeing some old friends, and playing these new songs alongside some old (and some very old) ones.



Listen to the new material here.
