NYC-based progressive psychedelic punk-rock band, The U.S. Americans, share their new single and video for “KBG” today via BLOG. “KBG” is the first single from their just-announced debut album, Greatest Hits, due out in September.
Produced by Scott Von Ensign and executive produced by Daniel Deychak, Emerson Williams, Roy Abraham and Jeff Weiss, Greatest Hits, is a collection of the best of progressive, psychedelic punk from the sons of liberty, The U.S. Americans.
The group developed as a live act. Highlark Magazine caught a live show and reported, “the Americans had me from the word go as vocalist Jeff Weiss proudly hoisted a United States Championship belt overhead and outward toward the audience.” The belt has become a major part of the live show and House of Glory, New York’s largest independent wrestling company,has used their music in their lively wrestling video compilations. Isaac Rodilla from HOG says, “The team here at HOG has dubbed U.S. Americans as the best band in the USA. We gave them the championship belt and it’s not just for this year… it’s 4 life.”
Highlark Magazine went on to say, “In terms of performance, Weiss’ voice and flamboyant gestures were enchanting and, not to be outdone, the instrumentals were so well done that I took for granted how good they were… concert-goers who didn’t need any more incentive to love America.”
Producer Scott Von Ensign distilled the energy of their live show into an under-an-hour record. Sporting an array of songs as diverse as Queens and spanning timelines between 90 seconds and 9 minutes, Greatest Hits is a fun trip into the world of Cuban gangsters, cinema, promiscuous cutlery, board games, Kings County, and oral hygiene.
