VARIANT: Half Clear / Half Black Vinyl LP
American Nightmare’s 2001 debut, Background Music, changed hardcore. Full stop. The Boston band emerged from the late-Nineties youth crew scene with a sound that was as impassioned and energetic as it was dark and stylized. Wes Eisold’s poetic, tortured lyrics went far beyond the usual hardcore tropes, delving into heartbreak and emotional turmoil with a literary grace that few bands before them achieved. Today, Background Music stands as a monument of 2000s hardcore, and simply one of the genre’s best entries. Ever.
This exclusive LP vinyl variant is on “Half Clear / Half Black” and limited to only 250 copies, so order yours today!
