Watch Minneapolis Rockers The Soviet Machines Cover David Bowie’s “I’m Afraid Of Americans”

The Soviet Machines are an American rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota who released their debut album in early 2021, reviving a high school project founded by Jack Swagger. The band’s current new single, a cover of David Bowie’s “I’m Afraid Of Americans” takes them into new sonic territory and also features a liveplay video.

The track was produced by original Social Distortion drummer Derek O’Brien (Fishbone, the Adicts, the Meat Puppets) in Los Angeles and the group is currently gearing up for Fall touring and several follow up singles due out from Punk Rock label DC-Jam Records.
