We’ve been a band for 9 years. We used to do everything ourselves but these days a bunch of friends help us out with stuff. Here is a more official write up from our publicist.
Screaming Females’ seven years as a band, four full-length albums and 700 globe-spanning live shows has made them difficult to miss. Through it all, the New Brunswick, New Jersey trio have continued to exude a frenetic energy which is built upon the zeitgeist of America’s punk and indie underground yet has always remained forward-looking. Fittingly, for Screaming Females’ 5th album ‘Ugly’, the band enlisted legendary recording engineer Steve Albini, famed for his unique ability to capture the ferociousness of a live performance while delivering gorgeous sonic clarity. The album’s 14 tracks reaffirm the touchstones of the band; they can still shred and front-woman Marissa Paternoster can still unleash a powerful howl. But it doesn’t end there. The album ushers in new explorations for the band, a truly remarkable feat considering their already prolific output. ‘Ugly’ has the perfect combination of raw energy and honed musicianship that produces the type of rock & roll which is still a force to be reckoned with.
Fronted by Pauwel De Meyer, is a new band that’s flooding the Belgian scene with cluster bombs made of psychedelic garage rock. “Every time we finish a song, we record it straight away. That version is the definitive one too. There’s no sense in trying again as it’s impossible to equal the energy of the first tentative in a studio version,” says De Meyer.
And that’s what’s happening right now: barely one year after being founded, the band’s releasing its first album!
