Formed in 2016, the quintet came together with a common goal to provide a platform to
share personal stories and for a better mental wellbeing through music. Having played shows with Defeater, Hotel Books, Hikes, and itoldyouiwouldeatyou over the past 18 months, americansignlanguage now look to make an impact with their thought-provoking, emotionally charged brand of post-hardcore. Recorded with Bob Cooper (Nervus, Muskets, Kamikaze Girls), ‘I Exist’, channels the spoken word narration reminiscent of La Dispute and Touché Amoré alongside the explosive passion of bands like The Saddest Landscape and Orchid.

Overall, americansignlanguage have produced a captivating EP that is an authentic representation of what struggling with mental health issues is like. Its six tracks capture anxiety, anger, hope and pain by being lyrically compelling and musically powerful.
