Heavy punk/metal band American Terror has just made their critically-acclaimed debut album “Influencer” available for purchase in CD format. The CD (with full-color booklet) is available to purchase at their official web store (https://americanterrorband.com/store) and has been released by EMP Label Group, the label founded by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson with industry executive Thom Hazaert. Now that manufacturing, shipping, and distribution channels are getting back up to speed after COVID-19-related delays, the band promises that more limited-run physical format releases are on the way and that they will be announcing those shortly.
“Influencer” has tallied up 80,000+ Spotify streams since its release shortly over a month ago, when it arrived on the heels of the success of American Terror’s recent singles, “Judgement” and “She’s A Bitch”. These two tracks leading up to the full-length release quickly built momentum for the band, thanks to features on Spotify’s editorial and algorithmic playlists, in addition to spots on over 240 user playlists. With 16,000+ monthly listeners and 28,000+ YouTube views across multiple channels, prominent rock media outlets took notice and covered the band’s progress, including Blabbermouth, BraveWords, Ultimate-Guitar, and KNAC.
“Influencer” was engineered, produced, and mixed by vocalist Brad Cox at his Black Paw Studios in Lawrenceville, GA. Brad is partners in the publishing company Black Paw Music with legendary producer Mike Clink (Guns N’ Roses, Megadeth, Metallica). The record was mastered by Troy Glessner (Disturbed) at Spectre Studios in Seattle, WA. The band’s studio and creative lineup includes guitarist Pat Valley, bassist Murphy Karges, drummer Rob Hammersmith, and DJ Soulman, with bassist GK Via stepping in live.
