DeGreaser Share New Single, "Florida Man"
Miami-based shredders, DeGreaser have unveiled the definitive ode to frontman Ben Katzman’s home state in the form of a new single - “Florida Man”. It’s a hard-hitting, punk anthem that warns the listener of the dangers that await them in the sunshine state. With searing guitars, gut-punch vocals, and an ecstatic sax solo, DeGreaser delivers yet another acid-trip postcard from the depths of America's collective unconscious by way of a dizzying mix of derangement, bath salts and the good ol’ aspirational spirit of the mythical “Florida Man”.
While bandleader Ben Katzman is also known for running BUFU Records (Tall Juan, Free Pizza, Japanther) and his role in the seminal psych-art band, Guerilla Toss, DeGreaser is the centerpiece of his impressive creative portfolio. Over the course of its existence, the pop-metal outfit has grown an impressive following for its dynamic songwriting, diary entry-like songwriting and a diverse range of expertise in the worlds of astrology, shredding, and self-improvement.
DeGreaser have packed landmark venues across the United States as they’ve toured alongside acts such as Mannequin Pussy, Colleen Green and Tall Juan. Their sponsorship with Volcom has extended to tours with many of their top surfers and skaters, as well as, some of the legendary surf brand’s gnarliest content. The band’s 2018 release, the Colleen Green produced full-length Quarter Life Crisis, was met with both critical acclaim and uncompromising fan support. It tells the no-nonsense journey of your twenties through universally relatable titles such as “Too Old for Retail” and “Cool Point’s Don’t Pay The Rent”. As Katzman prepares DeGreaser’s upcoming astrology album for the Starburns Industries Label (Rick and Morty, Anomalisa), DeGreaser is hitting the road and bringing the dreaded Florida Man with them.
