Phoenix, AZ chaotic hardcore punk band American Standards have released an intense new single titled ‘The Dealer’ from their upcoming EP ‘Dopamine Dealer’, to be released February 3rd 2023. The unhinged track, which was complimented by an equally unsettling music video, draws nostalgic sounds for fans of early 2000s metalcore/mathcore bands such as Every Time I Die, The Chariot, Botch, and Converge.

American Standards singer Brandon Kellum said of the song:

“I’ve always wanted to do a spin on Doris Day’s ‘Que Sera, Sera’. I love the idea of not worrying about what you can’t change but wanted to challenge the concept of leaving it up to “fate”. In our version, ‘The Dealer’, addresses the anxiety, depression and self doubt that often prevents us from taking action. It ends with a question, are you living up to your potential or waiting for a future that isn’t promised?”
