American Werewolf Academy is a band based on the unashamed principles of pop. The band's influences range from 60s pop, 70s power pop, post punk to bubblegum rock. Favorite bands of AWA include Roky Erickson, Guided By Voices, The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Kinks, Cheap Trick, The New Pornographers, and R.E.M. AWA was formed in the fall of 2003 after Robot Monster Weekend had to call it a day and Slobberbone was taking a break. Three guys from Dallas, TX are in the band.
