Stemming from former bands like The Black Water, Sky Burial and Sister Mary Rotten Crotch among others, American Catastrophe explores the Americana, the rural grit, the murderer and the romantic. A world of the seedy where one can die choking on the dove of peace or be beaten to death with a bouquet of roses.
