American Arson Release New Song "Arrowheads" and Music Video

American Arson have returned strong this year with a bunch of songs off their upcoming album “Sand & Cinder, Tide & Timber” due out November 3rd on Facedown Records. This latest titled “Arrowheads” is a perfect representation of the glorious punch and delivery that American Arson have to offer through their music. There is something awe inspiring and utterly magnificent about this band. Everything from their songs and artwork to the songwriting and vocals just strike me as unique, a cut above the mundane. This is another bright spot for the killer independent label that Facedown Records remains.… Continued →

American Arson Return With 3 Song EP + Album November 3rd

American Arson just dropped 3 new songs on all digital networks in advance of their upcoming album titled “Sand & Cinder // Tide & Timber”. By the sounds of these 3 songs, we are in for quite a surprise. What a fantastic way to close out 2023 than jamming out with crowd and scene favorites – American Arson. Their particular brand of Post-Hardcore meets punk and rock is truly something awe inspiring. It’s amazing to watch the progression from Good Luck Varsity to this which is without a doubt, one of the finer things to drop on Facedown Records genre wise, in the past year or so.… Continued →

American Arson - Unbreakable (Redrawn)

American Arson have released a surprise redone version of one of their latest songs, “Unbreakable”. You can find the really great new version on your favorite digital network right now. I’m a big fan of bands that stretch out their wings and break the norm of what they’ve become known for. Wouldn’t a whole album like this sound great? Kind of like when My Epic released their best album, “Broken Voice”, a decade ago.… Continued →

Best of 2020: Noah Hardwick (Part III)

Something I realized once I started breaking my top 100 albums and EPs of 2020 list down into four posts is that each post became a micro-list of its own. For example, I wasn’t really thinking too hard about what album I was going to rank 26th when there were 100 albums. But when I split the list up suddenly being ranked 26th seemed really important as it became the last album a reader will see in this post. The reverse proved be true as well, ranking an album 75th where it’s going to be first album a reader sees when they click my post became important too.… Continued →

Check out the song below and make sure you preorder their new album “A Line In The Sand” due out July 3rd on Facedown Records.

American Arson Breaks Hiatus With "Rise"

Detroit post-hardcore duo American Arson have returned from a brief hiatus with the explosive-yet-catchy single, “Rise”, which you should definitely check out below. “Rise” opens with the pair’s trademark grit, before seamlessly going into a sing-along bit. The track shimmers with some of the most melodic elements we’ve seen from American Arson to date – the chorus is catchy and there’s a shimmering, synth-like ambiance at play that gives it a fair share of pop sensibility. However, if you’re familiar with the group, you’ll know their song structures stray from predictable and that’s certainly the case and the track oscillates from certainly-going-to-be-stuck-in-your-head to mosh-pit-inducing.… Continued →

REVIEW : American Arson - Waymaker EP

Waymaker is yet another strong release from American Arson, showcasing a blend of punk, pop-punk, alternative, and straight up rock.
