Screaming Females Announce New Album “Ugly” and Record Store Tour Dates


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.

As a lead up to Ugly, Screaming Females will release the album’s first single, ‘It All Means Nothing’, on February 11, 2012 at the Don Giovanni Records Showcase in Brooklyn, NY. The 7″ record will be backed with a live version of ‘A New Kid’ from a session recorded at the fabled independent radio station, WFMU. The showcase will be followed by a weeklong tour of free shows at record stores (and a bookstore). The new single will be exclusively available for purchase from the band during this run of shows.
