Screaming Females AUSTRALIAN TOUR
presented by BONE SOUP & Future Popes

“[Marissa is] the most amazing alternative rockstar out there today.” – Shirley Manson, Garbage

"When Marissa plays she doesn't hold back. She's a female guitar hero. I like anybody who just lays it out there and goes for it.” – J Mascis, Dinosaur Jr

“[Screaming Females] are a great band and I hope they keep going forever” – Steve Albini

Supports by the amazing DEAFCULT + Martyr Privates!

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, this year sees them make their first ever trip below the equator.

Their blistering-yet-mannered rock onslaught has been critically acclaimed for years, both in a live setting as well as on record. Their 5th full length, Ugly, recorded by lauded engineer, Steve Albini, captures the ferociousness of their live performance while delivering gorgeous sonic clarity. On their latest release though, 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.

So if you, like us, haven’t seen Screaming Females live, the trio played two shows in Chicago at The Hideout back in 2013, which were recorded by Steve Albini and released as a live album. We’ve been told Live At The Hideout is the best representation we’re going to get of the band’s crazy onstage antics, mind bendingly crafty, shredding solos and the canyon-spanning vocals of Paternoster. Check it out and see why we’re so damn excited for this tour to come around this August.

Hot tip: bring earplugs, or you’ll be screwed.
