User Bio


American Fangs is a Houston born rock band (Gabe – Vocals, Micah – Drums, Kenyon – Guitar, Chris - Guitar, Kyle – Bass) whose energetic shows and intelligent music have brought them out of their southern roots and into national recognition.

The members of American Fangs, Gabriel Cavazos (vocals), Micah Miller (drums), Kyle Shimek (bass, vocals), Kenyon Puntenney (guitar) and Chris Goodwin (guitar), met through the local music scene while performing in different bands. The “unscripted” tale of success began with casual jam sessions where the multi-talented 5-piece collaborated and the music synergy grew.

"People have been saying that they think they know where we're going with our music but we think that is impossible because we don't even WANT to know where we are going creatively."

Boosting new rock edge in their effectual tracks, this quintet of twenty something’s deliver a sound that will evoke the inner rock star in you, or anti-rock star. “We like our rough edges” Gabe explains about their catchy lyrics and eclectic influence. “Sometimes I have an indie pop moment and I loose my mind, and it’s cool”.

American Fangs, out of Houston, Tx, got tired of walking the hamster wheel and decided to make an album that hopefully makes you want to quit your day-job and do something REAL. Punch you in the paycheck guitars against Nevermind era-Drums and Rhythm section. For Fans of: Foo Fighters, Deftones, Chevelle, Incubus, Kings Of Leon & Stone Temple Pilots.
