"A little bit stoner, a little bit punk, a lot a bit fuzz, it is just the right mixture to create that delicious blend of awesomeness." -- Nerdist
"Puts Motorhead’s rhythm section, The Stooges’ raw power, and Black Sabbath’s evil melodies in a blender. For a more modern comparison, it also sounds a bit like Mutoid Man." -- Brooklyn Vegan
Austin trio American Sharks premiere a new track from their forthcoming album 11:11 today via Brooklyn Vegan. Hear and share "Spare The Rod" HERE. (Direct YouTube.) The album will be available via NYC label The End Records on May 17th.

American Sharks is a three-piece band hailing from Austin, TX. Since the release of their self-titled debut album, American Sharks has toured extensively supporting the likes of GWAR, Clutch, The Sword, Red Fang, Big Business, Corrosion of Conformity and many others. After touring to support their debut album, American Sharks took time off to write and record their self-produced follow up album. With a spring 2019 release date, American Sharks will look to expand on the story they began writing in 2013.
“Austin's American Sharks provide the antidote to a mob of grimacing heshers...heavy metal soul, stoner rock brains, and a punk rock heart, the fast-rising power trio yells and pounds its way through rollicking nuggets of crushed concrete and dirty steel.” -- Michael Toland, Austin Chronicle
“American Sharks are creating some of the grittiest, rawest and realest rock and roll we've heard in a very long time.” -- Diffuser.fm
“American Sharks play that special brand of hard rock we love so much. A little bit stoner, a little bit punk, a lot a bit fuzz, it is just the right mixture to create that delicious blend of awesomeness...If you’re not into American Sharks, fix that that. Get into them. Rock ‘n’ Roll waits for no one.” --Benjamin Bailey, Nerdist
11:11 will be available on LP, CD and download on May 17th, 2019 via The End Records. Pre-orders are available HERE.
