The new album "BLACK FEATHER" is the self produced full length effort mixed by Tim Patalan (Sponge, Taproot) and features a cover of the Bob Seger System's "Lucifer", on which keyboardist Jimmie Bones (Kid Rock) appears. More able to experiment since their break from Roadrunner Records, this is a darker and considerably more psychedelic effort...so dig out the headphones, turn it up, and tune out!
One of Michigan's top live acts, the Dirty Americans dedicate themselves to continuing the heavy riffs and workman-like raw vibe you can only find in one place...Detroit!. Drawing inspiration from and playing with such legendary Michigan rockers as the MC5, Iggy and the Stooges, Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent , and Kid Rock... Dirty Americans carry a heavy torch!
Roadrunner Record's promotion of the first album "Strange Generation", produced by Paul Ebersold (Saliva/3 Doors Down) in 2004, generated a top 10 video in Japan and the UK, music on prime time TV (Alias), and songs in such playstation games as Wayne Gretzky Hockey, ATV3, American Chopper, and GT4.
Their success overseas led to major festival appearances around the world including Japan's Summer Sonic Festivals, Turino, Italy's Freefest with the Stooges, a co-head liner with Jet at Festimad-Madrid, Spain, as well as Download Festival/Donnington,UK, Rock Am Ring & Rock Im Park/Germany...all the while maintaining their do it yourself Motor City rebelious stance.
"They're a gritty, down and dirty Michigan rock band, I think they're one of the best bands we've produced in Michigan, ever!" - Gary Graff/Rolling Stone/Billboard/Detroit Free Press, citing MC5, Alice Cooper, and Iggy and the Stooges, "You can mention them in the same breath as all those historic rock bands"
"Dirty Americans go straight for the jugular with killer riffs, melodies and honest sunny stoner vibes, rock music at its uplifting, unpretentious best ...
