A gang of unapologetic rockers, American Drag is a kicking live band from San Francisco's North Bay with the songs to match. American Drag combines the classic rock attitude of the Black Crowes, the song craft of Tom Petty and the experimental edge of the Mars Volta to take audiences anywhere-from anthem rock to full on prog-rock jams. The band's self-titled debut chronicles a peculiar bit of Americana- the 'American Dream' turned 'American Drag' and the human spirit's struggle for redemption. It's music with substance: 'Background in prog, power pop, and grunge translates to big melodic riffs that turn on a dime, and when they bring it out to the edge of the cliff, it's clear: These guys can f***ing play!' Richard B. Simon / Relix Magazine 'And today, Marin's great musical tradition continues with a dynamic local band called American Drag... I suggest you catch their live show now, because they're about to rocket through the stratosphere' Rodger Cambria/ Spin (writing for The News Marin) 'These boys rock steady, in a way that's been forgotten by most of today's so-called alt-rock bands' R.
