Left Alone is back. Back from months and months of touring in the U.S., Canada and Europe with a brand new record to tell you about it.
"Dead American Radio" is a 16 song sonic blast of lonely road filled stories, drunken adventures and lost love anthems. Drawing influence from personal loves and loss, lead singer & producer Elvis Cortez touches on a darker side on this record, adding a more diverse style and sound.
Dead American Radio is Left Alone's most ambitious record to date.

Tim Armstrong (Rancid) co-wrote the ska tinged song "City to City"
with Elvis, and Tim also sings on the track bringing a rawness to the touring song about falling in love every night with the girls and with the booze.
patricia Day, (HorrorPops) takes on double duties on her guest appearance by slapping her stand up bass on the track "Done Wrong" and also by co-writing the Song "La Pregunta", singing it as a duet with Elvis in Spanish.
There are many highlight tracks on this record such as "Every Night", which is the record's most noticeable pop filled anthem as well as the broken hearted country/punk love song "waiting for you". The title track "Dead American Radio" speaks of the discontent with today's radio play list and way of business, while "4 weeks" screams of endless tours and long nights.
The exuberant yet repentant punk anthem that launches Left Alone’s 2006 sophomore Hellcat offering is the kind of no bullshit, honest proclamation that fans ...
