The new EP from American Nightmare and their first 10" vinyl release. 

Dedicated... is AN refusing to rest on legacy. The legendary hardcore punk band returns with four new songs that sound like classic and future AN, stripped down and sped up to their trademarked urgency and live violence. With stream of conscious lyrics and existential dread, these are revival songs for the modern disenchanted. 

"How I Got Away" recalls AN's anthemic hardcore sound ala tracks "We Are" and "The World Is Blue." "Self Check-Out" is a minute-long punk blister. "Real Love" flies like speed fueled Stooges and "Praying Hands..." nods to the influences of Bad Brains and Negative Approach.

Having started in 2000 and initially breaking up in 2004, the band reunited in 2011 and subsequently launched a second life of lauded shows and records proving that there is life after youth. 

Recorded live to 2 inch tape by American Nightmare drummer Alex Garcia-Rivera at Mystic Valley Recording Studio in Boston.

Mastered and cut for vinyl by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service.

Printed on heavyweight reverse board jacket.
