PRESS RELEASE:

Twenty-fifteen marked a lot of milestones for Screaming Females. As one of America’s most critically acclaimed underground punk bands, they released their sixth full-length album,  Rose Mountain via Don Giovanni Records, worked for the first time with an outside producer, hit quadruple digits on the live show front and marked their ten-year anniversary as a band.

Equal parts Dinosaur Jr and Sleater-Kinney, the trio of Marissa Paternoster (guitar/vocals), Michael Abbate (bass) and Jarrett Dougherty (drums), ten years on, are still as hard working and viciously independent as they were when they began in 2005.

 

Paternoster’s vocals have been likened to those of Corin Tucker in the way they wither and howl with a vibrato that blows minds time and again, while her shredding guitar abilities have seen her named in SPIN Magazine’s “Top 100 Guitarists Of All Time.” Having notched up over one thousand shows in the northern hemisphere, exuding a frenetic energy with an almost frightening level of intensity which has seen them join stages alongside, Dinosaur Jr, Garbage, The Dead Weather and the list goes on, 2016 sees them make their first ever trip below the equator.

On their latest release, Rose Mountain the trio worked with producer and engineer, Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Sword, Minus The Bear, Soundgarden), to delve deeper than they ever have before into the intricacies of guitar tones and drum sounds. Rose Mountain sees Screaming Females produce a record that is their most concise, crisp and melodic yet.
