Fastest Land Animal’s highly anticipated sophomore album, East Coast, West Coast, In Between, will be released on January 20th.

The new album was recorded throughout the last year’s lockdown remotely. Each member, Screamin’ Jack Novak (vocals), aka John Cusimano, Alfonse Castillo (guitars and bass), aka Jonny Blaze, and Shark Samuels (drums), aka Andrew Meskin, laid down their respective tracks from their homes via video chat.

Earlier this fall, the group released two songs from the album, “Out of Range” and “Cowboys in Nashville,” which have already received nearly one million views on YouTube. Rallying around influences of Hüsker Dü, The Velvet Underground, David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Queens Of The Stone Age, Rage Against The Machine, and The Ramones; Fastest Land Animal combines aspects of those bands with the glory days of gutter punk and revved-up Rock n’ Roll.

It was a pleasure speaking with Screamin’ Jack Novak about his new band, the creation of their releases, his love of combining Punk ethos with melody, touring with Alice Cooper and Motley Crue in 2015, and their upcoming tour with Telsa!

With distortion cranked, synths warm, and no regard for the rules, Fastest Land Animal tap into the eternal power of three equally committed (and possibly crazed) kindred spirits. In this case, the trio— Screamin’ Jack Novak [vocals, guitar, synths] aka John Cusimano, Alfonse Castillo [guitar, bass] aka Jonny Blaze and Shark Samuels [drums] aka Andrew Meskin crash land (at full speed) into the intersection of glorious gutter punk, revved-up rock ‘n’ roll, and off-kilter pop. This slick, yet sharp style continues to captivate a growing fan base with nearly 10 million YouTube views and counting and acclaim from the likes of RIFF Magazine and more.

However, they only amplify every aspect of their vision on their 2023 second full-length LP, East Coast, West Coast, In Between.

“When you hear us, I hope you go, ‘This reminds me of a time and place in my life and means something to me’,” Jack concludes. “Maybe you’ll want to see us live and have a good time, all the time.”
