BPMD Feat. BOBBY ‘BLITZ’ ELLSWORTH, MIKE PORTNOY, PHIL DEMMEL And MARK MENGHI: Listen To Cover Of ‘We’re An American Band’

BPMD — the new heavy metal band featuring vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth (OVERKILL), drummer Mike Portnoy (THE WINERY DOGS, SONS OF APOLLO), bassist Mark Menghi (METAL ALLEGIANCE) and guitarist Phil Demmel (VIO-LENCE, ex-MACHINE HEAD) — will release its debut album, “American Made”, on June 12 via Napalm Records. The 10-track homage to some of rock music’s greatest treasures is turbocharged by the experience and enthusiasm of its four creators.

Today, the members of BPMD have revealed their third single, the charging new version of GRAND FUNK RAILROAD’s classic anthem “We’re An American Band”. Check out the new rendition below.

Menghi says about “We’re An American Band”: “The goal of ‘American Made’ was, and is, to pay tribute to some of the great music of the ’70s, in particular American music from the ’70s. We love music from all over the world; England, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Australia, etc… but at the end of the day, we are an American band, so it made sense to pay tribute to one of the greatest American bands of the ’70s by covering one of the greatest songs of that decade by the mighty GRAND FUNK

“Being that this song was originally written about being on tour, we’ve been reminiscing about days on the road and how much we miss our fans. Touring is the lifeblood of most bandse.

“We can’t wait to perform some shows and play these BPMD tunes, and see music flourish in a live setting once again.”

Blitz adds: “‘American Band’, in my opinion was the icing on the cake for this project. The idea of ‘American Made’, the ’70s called for it. The song was iconic then and truly stood the test of time. The call and answer between my vox and Phil’s guitar on the outro make the track that much more special.”
