Southern Californiaís Strung Out are a brigade of five dudes who formed in 1992, creatively fusing punk, metal, and progressive rock into an aggressively charged soundtrack for the youth of today. Over the years, Strung Out have climbed the ranks in the punk scene, plugging in to multiple Vans Warped Tours, and sharing the stages with The Offspring, Pennywise, Papa Roach, and many more. Recorded and produced by Donnell Cameron (Bad Religion, NOFX, Lagwagon) at West Beach Recorders, the bandís fourth album, An American Paradox, melds fast So-Cal style punk with thick metal-influenced guitars, pushed through with thunderous drums, and held tight with melodic vocals. Stacked with a variety of monster singles with major potential for commercial airplay, this electric record forces programmers to recognize the impact and longevity of the talented roster of Fat Wreck Chords. They are Fat for a reason.
