Strange Americans first began in 2009 through a series of Craigslist ads and mutual acquaintances. The group released an applauded debut in 2012, A Royal Battle, and finished its sophomore album That Kind of Luster in September of 2014. That Kind of Luster conveys an authentic, raucous, unapologetically raw energy. As Marquee Magazine describes, "Strange Americans are rescuing something from the rust pile — straight-forward, no frills rock and roll, and a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, but presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion." Strange Americans follwed with Places, a 7" vinyl in late 2015; their third full length album is slated for released in summer 2017.
