American Anodyne

Soaked in moonshine and forged from gold, American Anodyne is a band melded in the furnace of Appalachia. These truly southern gentlemen are creating a brand of Americana reminiscent of ‘70’s outlaw country while embracing the sentiments of modern times.
American Anodyne’s music convey tales of small town life and portrays the hardship of living in the ‘new depression’. With songs depicting a lust for the open road, heartbreaks, and handguns their no-holds-barred style of portraying life in the south is honest and authentic. Their first EP “So, you want to be a bullfighter…” was released in April of 2011 and features the tracks “Call My Brother” and “Bastard Sons of the New Depression.”

The concept of American Anodyne was created about 4am on the night of January 9th, 2010 under cold, clear skies in the sleepy town of Dahlonega, Georgia. Erick Jones and Chris Thacker had been doing some drinking, some picking, and some talking about the idea of putting a band together for quite a while, but on that faithful night the two decided that they would definitely create a musical entity, make a record, and hit the road in the spring.

The very next morning Thacker received a call to go on tour for the better part of 2010, but all things happen for a reason.

    Bastard Sons of the New Depression... man, that is POWERFUL... those words run deep, true, and straight. If that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass... Don't know how to get that out... but man, that song has to hit the waves... it SPEAKS Nothin' But Respect...
