East Coast Rockers American Speedway establishes a nasty disposition while cutting teeth on their own brash hard rock punk metal.

If it sounds like Sean K. Preston sings about hard luck, lost love, long journeys, dark secrets, damnation and redemption like he’s lived through them…it’s because he damn well has.

It’s Blues- Punk -Country, Rock’n’Roll….Amen

The music of Sean K. Preston draws heavily on the influences of the classic heartbroken sounds of Country & Western music from the 40’s through the 70’s, the honesty of the Blues by the likes of Robert Johnson and John Lee Hooker, the bombast of 50’s Rock’n’Roll, the lyrical sophistication of musical poets like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Nick Cave, the raw energy of Punk and the spirituality of Mountain Gospel. His own songs range from delicate laments and lullabies to fiery sermons and confessions.

Viva Le Vox bubbled up out of the South Florida muck in 2008. Often found playing open mics and their local laundromat spreading their peculiar blend of punk rock, ragtime, and blues, their live performances soon gained enough attention to land them in the clubs. It wasn’t long before they took their show state-wide. With their first full length release Desperation Alley in 2009 they ventured out into the southeastern United States. In 2010 they released Wayward Ones and took on the rest of America, touring almost nonstop for the next two years with a short break to record Dirt For Sale with Joe Buck (Joe Buck Yourself, Hank III, Legendary Shack Shakers). The band’s lineup has embodied many forms since its inception, and at this point Tony teamed up with Joe on upright bass to continue spreading VLV’s weirdness here in the states and make the jump across the pond to Europe. In 2014 the duo recorded Luv Hungry and made their second run to Europe and the UK in 2015. Upon their return, Tony reunited with original bassist Scarecrow Jenkins and convinced long time friend Johnny Tugboat to take up the drums, soon relocating the base of operations to North Carolina. The trio released The Fall Of Skivvy Starzo in 2016 and continue to blow asses off throughout the galaxy….

“Listeners prone to stream-of-consciousness wanderings might find
themselves distracted by thoughts of Tom Joad’s ghost materializing through
the Oklahoma dust, of the modern-day Woody-isms of Butch Hancock (whose
“Boxcars” is given a fine reading here), of resurrected Dashboard Saviors
and of current kindred spirits like the Old 97’s and Mike Herrera’s
Tumbledown.” – Rick Cornell, Independent Weekly, January 2010
