In modern times, many musicians have approached their music from a storytelling point of view: Dylan, Springsteen and Waits to name a few. Chicago’s Americana metal outfit, HUNTSMEN, are carrying the torch for heavy bands to be added to that list and have announced their signing to Prosthetic Records.

HUNTSMEN have released two EPs, 2014’s Post War and 2016’s The Colonel. When it came time to work on the band’s first full length, American Scrap, vocalist/guitarist Chris Kang wanted to tackle the paradox of American nationalism and pride, given we are a country of immigrants.

“I always have conflicting feelings,” speaks Kang, “where I’m really proud of the inclusive and optimistic ideal it represents- my father found opportunity here to carve a life that just didn’t exist back home- but I’m really ashamed of so much of its past and present. I wanted to make an album that spent some time with these confusing feelings, and that was American Scrap.”
