American Nightmare have announced a handful of shows for the UK and Europe.

The band, who were formerly known as Give Up The Ghost, revealed in December that their self-titled album would launch on February 16 via Rise Records, and also premiered the track The World Is Blue.

The lineup features vocalist Wes Eisold, bassist Josh Holden, guitarist Brian Masek and drummer Garcia-Rivera.

Eisold said: “This is a new start, it really is. We are now in the band we always wanted American Nightmare to be with the lineup, the songs, and the name back.

“It feels full circle in the sound of the music referenced earlier, but it also feels complete in that we took the reigns of the band and its past and made a new American Nightmare album – and now we are ready to move forward with it.”

American Nightmare is now available for pre-order. Find the cover art and tracklist below along with the new tour dates.
