American Bombshell reveal new guitarist Justin Bryant
American Bombshell returned to the stage at The Vogue in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA on July 2, 2020 with a new guitarist by the name of Justin Bryant. You can learn a little bit more about Bryant through an interview which he did that was posted on Yoshi Baxter‘s Facebook account on July 2nd.
The following message was posted on American Bombshell‘s Facebook page yesterday:
“In case you missed the show Thursday, we’d like to introduce you to our new member Mr. Justin Bryant! Jay Cee and Justin go way back in the music scene, and finally, the time is right for them to share the stage. Justin is an incredible guitarist, and we’re excited to see what he’ll bring to the mix. Justin, welcome to the Bomb Squad – LET’S DO THIS! #BombSquad #NoRegrets #DuelingBanjoes”
American Bombshell‘s sophomore album Tattooed ‘n Bruised finished at #4 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top 20 Albums of 2019 to which Sleaze Roxx stated:
“Every year, it seems that there is a group that has mobilized its fanbase to vote for it for the Sleaze Roxx readers’ year-end best albums list. Three years ago, Italian sleaze rockers Twisted landed the #5 spot out of the blue with their EP Dancin’ On Chaos on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2016 with only number one album votes. I suspect and will go on a limb and state that Twisted‘s EP would likely not have cracked the readers’ Top 20 without the benefit of those “fanbase” votes. Two years ago, it was Kickin Valentina that seemed to have sparked their fanbase which landed their album Imaginary Creatures at the #12 spot on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2017. Last year, it was Straight Six who seemed to have benefited from some voting from their fanbase for their debut full-length album Full Circle to finish at the #9 spot on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2018.
While American Bombshell sure looked like they asked their fanbase to vote for them based on the types of votes that Sleaze Roxx received, the reality is that they would have likely finished in the readers’ Top 20 albums regardless of those extra “fanbase” votes and by my estimation, around the #17 spot. It’s no surprise that Sleaze Roxx readers have embraced American Bombshell‘s sophomore album Tattooed ‘n Bruised since the record was a contender to crack the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2019 and the Indiana state band’s grittier debut album No Regrets finished at #6 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top 10 Albums of 2016.”
