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 was mixed and produced by Jack Endino in Seattle (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Babes In Toyland). Released on Feb. 8, 2019, « 1 » is well received in Switzerland, with the press and the public comparing Am Samstag’ songs and live performances to bands like Nirvana or yet L7.
Adepts of the DIY and convinced that grunge had even more potential outside their home country, the band tries exporting their music in the United States and Europe. Astonished by the positive feedbacks encountered, Am Samstag releases the EP worldwide on Sep. 9, 2019. This re-release kickes off the « Play Out Loud! Tour« , with shows in the United States and Europe until June 2020.
