2020 New Years Resolution: get on Rory’s fitness plan.
All jokes aside, he has really started taking care of himself and it shows. Good job brother. Photo by Alan Snodgrass for New Noise Magazine.

We’ll be @bocafiesta playing some deep cuts tonight at 12:30. It’s a small space and should be an absolute rager. Come hang and get first dibs on new shirts and hoodies! We also have a limited supply of our new 7”.
Y’all ready ready for our set @thefestfl ?
Tickets are almost gone for our set at Bo Didley Plaza. Get em and don’t miss out.
12 years ago, on this day, we made our triumphant return to @fat_wreck Here’s why @kerrangmagazine_  says this is one of the most underrated albums of the 00’s. “After American Steel released their well-received acclaimed third record, Jagged Thoughts, in 2001, they did something somewhat unadvisable. They changed their name (to Communiqué) and their sound, swapping gritty punk for infectious (and brilliant) keyboard-driven melodies. As good as Communiqué were, it seems too much time had passed when American Steel ‘reformed’ in 2007 and released this album. Bold and brash, it begins with the pissed off Sons Of Avarice – a politically-charged anthem that sums up the world now as accurately as it did then – and is followed by 11 more catchy, dark punk songs that failed to make the mark they should have done. Insistent and urgent, Destroy Their Future should have sparked riots all around the world.”
It’s crazy to think that Tony has been gone for 7 years now. A quick background as to why Tony is relevant to AmSteel other than his enormous contributions to the SF Bay Area music scene. When I (Scott) first got an AmSteel demo tape from Ryan in 1997 I played it for a few friends, including Tony. Most were like yeah, typical east bay punk. But Tony said, “these are really good songs, you’re stupid if you don’t join this band”. I was lucky enough to be offered a spot behind the drums and can thank Tony for telling me to learn EVERY one of the 13 songs on the demo. So here I am, thankful to have known such an amazing person. Miss you Tony, and love to @brigittebsly and the girls today. ❤️🖤
10 years old today. What’s your favorite track from this record? Fun Fact: “The Blood Gets Everywhere” was written in the studio, on a whim, while we were mixing. Rory had the lead riff in his head all day so we banged it out on the spot. This is one of the many reasons Ryan, and most engineers/producers, won’t tear down gear until we are leaving the studio. Thanks to everyone @fat_wreck and especially to Mike at Hand Carved Graphics ( @satanicpuppeteer )for always nailing the art and layout. Recorded and mixed @sharkbitestudios in The Town.
