About this item
Wakefield have honed their skills on tours with Homegrown, Reel Big Fish, Alkaline Trio, Early November, Autopilot Off, All American Rejects and Avril Lavigne. From St. Mary's County Maryland, the four members of Wakefield recorded "American Made" in Los Angeles in 2002. They're a mix of brash and sometimes poignant songs strung together by guitar riffs, staccato drum beats, and three-part vocal harmonies underscored by hook-heavy melodies that bounce around like ping-pong balls. Tracks range from the fierce guitar strains of "Sold Out" and the straightforward punk-pop morsel "Un-sweet Sixteen," to the ska-tinged, celebrity-jabbing "Infamous."
