About Band

Sometimes things just fall into place…as was the case for Portland’s newest addition to the local ranks of rock bands, American Bastard. In the fall 2008 guitarist Kyle Nees, a long time heavy weight in the PDX heavy rock scene, rung up singer buddy Bob Merritt to pen a few songs and see where it went. Merritt had always been known for his strong pipes but something darker than usual was pouring through his lyrics. Another good friend Dane Haase happen to love pounding the skins hard and had been a local favorite from the bands he played with in and around PDX. Drums were now taken care of. The last piece was calling venerable bassist Lee Lovell, known for his stage energy, out of retirement of 10 yrs on the scene after a very impressive stint of punk rock and alt hard rock bands he help founded during his playing days. Just recently added, Justin Gibson on Lead Guitar. This is American Bastard, we have opened for such bands as (Powerman 5000, Cold, Saliva, Candelbox, Filter,10 years, Black Label Society & the 80's Band YnT)
