Get ready, it is going to get hot in here…. For Day 6 of 12 Days of Guitarists, we bring to you Brody DeRozie of American Monster from Las Vegas. We had the opportunity to watch Brody play with Hell or Highwater during the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento.  Brody is a madman on his guitar!  He is belting out riffs, smoking solos  and he just makes it look so easy. You can definitely tell that he loves playing and is a crowd pleaser.

We had the opportunity to talk with Brody about American Monster and he told us,  “American Monster is slotted to have a debut show back onstage in the early winter months of 2014 with the original lineup in Las Vegas. The following months will consist of shows in the southwest region of the US with some pretty familiar bands. In spring, we plan to record new songs, while re introducing original singer Mikey Lorenzo to the heavier current AM sound. Also as promised, merchandise! T-shirts, sticker, posters, etc.”

We are so excited to see and hear more of American Monster. To hear that they are back and ready to ROCK is music to my ears! When we asked about what is in store for 2014, Brody mentioned, “2014 is %100 American Monster. This band has a lot to offer the music world and I’m proud to be apart of it.”
