There are two bands called National Dust. 1. National Dust began as Eric "Evil E" Dust, Rob Farr, Peter Dallas and newly relocated Texan gun-slinger John Eric, completed the lineup as lead guitarist for National Dust in the summer of 2004. Evil E began bringing in songs weekly and collaborating with the band, and the undeniable chemistry rapidly evolved their heavy southern rock style. Quickly hitting the studio in the fall, their debut CD was released by Rock Royalty Records in January of 2005.
