This is not the story of a typical rock’n’roll band. “In music, everybody wants to be part of something big,” explains American Fangs frontman Gabe Cavazos. “But sometimes we zig when others zag. We stick out like a sore thumb. And that’s ok. We create our own vibe.” That vibe — loud guitars, big hooks, punk rock attitude — has already won American Fangs a fervent fanbase and a number of big-name (and wildly diverse) tours, ranging from Saul Williams to the Deftones to Chevelle.
