about

Delaware County, PA based band The Tressels are proud to announce the release of their new record Bury Me American, the final installment of the American Trilogy they began in 2011 with American Sunset, followed by American Midnight in 2012.

Working once again with Grammy recognized engineer Mike Tarsia (David Bowie/The Smithereens), the band has finally captured their explosive live energy on tape. Bury Me American is the raw, white-knuckled recording their dedicated fans have always expected from this veteran band of working class warrior poets.

2013 was a difficult year for founding members Andrew "Butch" Fullerton (Vocals/Guitar) and Brian "Dirtman" Sarkisian (Lead Guitar/Keyboard/Producer). Despite overwhelming accolades for American Midnight, Butch's 2 year marriage was coming to a close right as Dirtmans father was succumbing to the effects of a heart attack and stroke that would soon take his 51 year life.

As usual the pair put their pain into song. With the help of longtime collaborators Brendan "Fuzz" Floyd (Bass), Mickey “Reds” Turner (Percussion), and new member/old friend Matt "Outlaw" Orlando (Drums/Vocals), the group created their most vulnerable, affecting set of songs to date.

Bury Me American is the thrilling conclusion to the American Trilogy which began, as most things in The Tressels world, as a casual conversation over a round of beers. 4 years later, these 3 records are a period piece about love, loss, and finding hope in the most hopeless of times.

The Tressels have always maintained a delicate balance between the dark and light aspects of their songwriting.

Bury Me American is the sound of a band who is happy to make noise in the shadows.

lyrics

i want your golden years
and i want your heart right here
and i wanted to disappear before you came
i didn't mean to make you cry
that's just the way that i say goodbye
your kingdom awaits you
you don't have to stay here tonight

if you go
i'll be sad i won't let you know
i don't mind inside i'm all wires

i had a dream we talked
that's how i knew that it was a dream
how we spoke of our love and how nothing would stand in between
now i'm in a haunted mansion
nothing but time on my hands
i stayed up all night
just to write out my list of demands

if you go
i'll be sad i won't let it show
but i don't mind inside i'm all wires

your hearts an armored car
and i haven't had
any patience lately
to break in baby

i don't mind inside i'm all wires

about

The Tressels Pennsylvania

The Tressels turn personal and professional tragedies into earnest anthems about hope, addiction, betrayal, love, loss, nostalgia, and regret, played by life long friends who hold onto the heroic (or idiotic) notion that rock&roll is still a noble pursuit. ... more
