"Living the American Nightmare" is telling the story of all struggling artists who hit middle age before hitting it big. The main focus of this story of heartbreak & disillusionment is Myke Hideous, a singer/songwriter/artist from New Jersey who struggles to create despite numerous pitfalls in his career. Myke made his bones in the gothic rock band, the Empire Hideous. His project was littered with money trouble and line-up changes it's entire existence. The hight of Myke's career came when he was asked to join the reunited horror punk pioneers, the Misfits. Taking a position in the band many believed Myke conditioned for all his life, he lasted only a summer before he was unceremoniously fired.
