Amerakin Overdose is an Industrial / Shock Rock / Metal band from Portland, Oregon.  They fuse a lot of the elements of 90's Nu-Metal with Modern Pop music production and the look of a theatrical presentation.

The band has been in existence since the late 2000's or so, as the brainchild of Cody Perez.  With the current line-up of Cody Perez, Pito Perez, The Human, Cameron Plesa and Brick, Amerakin Overdose continues to rapidly grow it's fan base and inspire a new generation of musicians who seek the American dream.

Their debut self-titled studio album released in April 2012, and since, they have toured multiple times, both regionally and nationally.  They have opened up for many big names locally, regionally and nationally.

"The Great Amerakin Dream" released September 30th, 2016.

The only material I did not contribute bass to were "Red, White, and Black" and "Nothing Remains" respectively.  Also credited with assistant engineering.

This album was a labor of love for all of us involved.  We spent several months recording it, while it had been in writing for awhile.  I am proud to see this album turn out the way it did.  It is a significant level of maturity over the self-titled debut album, and it really shows.

I still support this band in whatever they do, and I believe you should support them as well.  They gave me a chance, and a chance turned into a multitude of amazing opportunities, all of which I am extremely thankful for.  They truly deserve everything positive in their future.  their hard work ethics are proof of this.
