Am Samstag is a rock band formed in September 2018. Drawing on influences from the bands that gave birth to the grunge movement in the early 90’s, the trio wishes to prove that grunge is not dead, it was just asleep for a while.
In only 6 months of existence, the band composed and recorded a 4-tracks EP which has been mixed and produced by Jack Endino in Seattle (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Babes In Toyland). Composed of broken vocals, distorted guitars, fuzzy bass lines and aggressive drums, the EP “1” is a travel to the Seattle underground scene.
Released in Switzerland on Feb. 8, 2019, the record is well received by the few critics who received the album, comparing Am Samstag’ songs and live performances to bands like Nirvana or yet L7. Following the success encountered in their home country, the trio
decides to export their music worldwide and share their passion of grunge with the rest of the world.
The digital release of the EP “1” on Sep. 9, 2019 will kick off the “Play Out Loud! Tour“, with shows in the United States, France, Italy, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Portugal and Spain.
