Artist Appreciation: An Awful Mess



Check out their website



Crafted in the burning deserts of Arizona during the inevitable demise of previous bands, An Awful Mess is an amalgamation of all things 2000s.

From the days of MTV and Taste Of Chaos, drawing influence from bands like Senses Fail, Taking Back Sunday, and My Chemical Romance, the band seamlessly strings together the raw ferocity of live performance with touches of electronic production to cover all sonic ground.

The band is comprised of vocalists and guitarists Andrew James and Aaron Mitchell, lead guitarist Ruben Arellano, bassist Troy Sanchez and are rounded out by drummer Kenneth Mustafa.

Elements of pop punk, post-hardcore, and emo are blended together to create… An Awful Mess.
