American Murder was formed in 2005 in Concord, NC, by Dustin McBride (lead vocals/guitar) and Rob-O (bass/backing vocals). After writing what would become their first E.P. in Rob-O’s living room after a long night of Red Bulls and video games, they were in the studio the next day recording the “Coming Home EP”. With a huge internet response form the EP. they started to hit the stage anywhere they could.
American Murder’s debut album, “Chapter 1: We Pledge Allegiance...”, merges unhinged power chords and arena ready melodies to churn out a genre defying album chocked full of heart-pounding rock and roll.
