American Nightmare name update
The band formerly known as American Nightmare (haha) is still alive and well. As some of you have probably noticed though, their official website is no longer functional and they are no longer mentioned on the Equal Vision Records website. This temporary cyberspace absence is due to the ongoing legal offensive from Philadelphia's American Nightmare, who hold the legal trademark for the name. As soon as the suit is officially settled, and AN can get their new name legally trademarked, an official announcement will be made regarding the band's new moniker. There are currently rumors floating around (particularly on our message board) that the band has changed their name to American Frightmare. This is entirely untrue, and unless it comes from the band or their label, we suggest you don't believe anything relating to a new name.
