Formed in Lausanne in September 2018, Am Samstag is a grunge band influenced by the acts that gave birth to the grunge movement in the early 90’s.
In only 6 months of existence, the band composed and recorded a 4-tracks EP which has been mixed and produced by Jack Endino in Seattle (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Babes In Toyland). Released in Switzerland on Feb. 8, 2019, « 1 » was well received by the few critics who received the album, comparing Am Samstag’ songs to bands like Nirvana or yet L7.
Adepts of the DIY and convinced that grunge had the potential to please outside Switzerland, the band tries exporting their music in the United States and Europe. Astonished by the positive feedbacks encountered, Am Samstag releases the record on digital platforms around the world on Sep. 9, 2019.
This release kicked off the « Play Out Loud! Tour« , with shows in the United States and Europe until June 2020.
