"DIRTFEDD is one of my favorite bands. They have all of the elements that I look for: brutality, melody, great songs, stage presence, and they are a true family. I can’t wait for the world to be infected by DIRTFEDD. Prepare." -clown 2012”
Dirtfedd was formed in April of 2002 in Lincoln, Nebraska.
A local buzz was quickly created surrounding Dirtfedd's aggressive style, and unpredictable live shows. The group was banned from a local venue, The Ranch Bowl, due to "nudity and lewd behavior" during their performance.
In 2006, Dirtfedd was introduced to M. Shawn Crahan of Slipknot by Sophia John after a local show in Omaha. Shawn approached the band regarding his interest in producing them. Under Shawn's guidance, the band signed to E1 Music/Sopra Evil in 2007. They released their debut album The American Nightmare, which was produced by M. Shawn Crahan of Slipknot, in July 2008. Since then,
Dirtfedd has toured and shared the stage with Slipknot, Korn, DevilDriver, Hatebreed, In Flames, Clutch, GWAR, American Head Charge, Sick Of It All, Corrosion of Conformity, All That Remains, The Used, Shadows Fall, Lamb of God, Unearth, and many others
