HOLLYWOOD, CA - AMERICAN SATAN, the Rated-R supernatural rock & roll thriller from SUMERIAN RECORDS mastermind ASH AVILDSEN, continues to make waves in the music and film industries with their latest official trailer.

Starring ANDY BLACK, JOHN BRADLEY (Game of Thrones) and Golden Globe nominee MALCOLM MCDOWELL, best known for his iconic role in Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, and currently on Amazon’s Mozart In The Jungle, AMERICAN SATAN opens on the big screen Friday the 13th of October in 50 US cities, many of them already on sale at AMC theatres. Internationally, cinemas in Canada, UK, Australia, and Mexico are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

AMERICAN SATAN introduces BEN BRUCE (Asking Alexandria) and OLIVIA CULPO (Miss Universe) to the screen as they star alongside an ensemble cast that includes Disney’s BOOBOO STEWART (The Twilight Saga, X-Men: Days of Future Past), MARK BOONE JR (Sons of Anarchy, Batman Begins), Denise Richards (Starship Troopers, Wild Things), WWE’s Bill Goldberg, Bill Duke (Predator), and Drake Bell.

The music-centric film features an original score by composer JONATHAN DAVIS of KoRn and songs from Deftones, The Pretty Reckless, Circa Survive, Skid Row, Crosses, In The Moment, Meg Myers, Dorothy, After the Burial, Barns Courtney, Palaye Royale, Animals As Leaders, Slaughter, and more.

It was the summer of 2015 when director ASH AVILDSEN was working on the AMERICAN SATAN script when he met his father for the first time, Oscar winning director, JOHN G AVILDSEN (Rocky, The Karate Kid, Lean On Me). As fate would have it, they collaborated on the movie together and formed a very close bond. John gave crucial notes on the script and some great tips to Ash during production. John also has a cameo in the film, playing a CNN news anchor. This would go on to be the last finished film John worked on before he passed away in June of 2017.

Already a winner of several awards on the festival circuit including Best Picture and Best Director at New York’s Peekskill Film Festival as well as Best Feature at California’s Oceanside Independent Film Festival, AMERICAN SATAN will play on Friday, September 22nd at the 33rd Annual Boston Film Festival.

About the release of AMERICAN SATAN, Ash Avildsen said:

“This story comes from a very real place. I dropped out of college to pursue a career in music. I’ve toured as both an unsigned and a signed artist. I’ve been a promoter, a booking agent, a manager, a producer, and am an active record label owner. With the exception of a physical manifestation of the devil and an angel, everything in the film is based on real events that either myself or the producers of the movie have experienced in our bands. I’m excited for our music community to go on this ride and understand why we chose the Neil Young quote ‘Rock & Roll is where God and the Devil shake hands’ to be on top of the posters at theatres.”

Some of the AMERICAN SATAN producers Ash references are:

Andy Gould, best known for producing Rob Zombie’s Halloween & The Devil’s Rejects and co-managing Pantera and Linkin Park.

John Reese, former tour manager and band manager for Guns ‘n’ Roses as well as concert festival producer for Knotfest meets Ozzfest and Rockstar Mayhem Festival.

Jeff Cohen, entertainment attorney best known in the public eye for handling Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe’s manslaughter trial in the Czech Republic.


A young rock band, half from England and half from the US, drop out of college and move to the Sunset Strip to chase their dreams. Living in a van, their passion and talent exceed their means to survive. An enigmatic stranger sees their true potential and emotionally manipulates them during a time of weakness.Caught in a middle of a Faustian deal, their music and controversial altercations end up influencing society beyond anything this century has seen, but can they take back control of their destiny before it’s too late?

NOTE: The first single from The Relentless, the fictional band in the film, “Let Him Burn”, was released worldwide on August 11 and hit #1 on iTunes rock & metal charts in 16 countries. The music video has already surpassed 1 Million Views on YouTube.
