Screaming Females kick off their 2019 summer tour on May 22 in Australia before heading to New Zealand and then the United States. The first US show will take place on June 28 in Brooklyn, New York where the band, Dark Thoughts will join them for their US and Canada shows. Tickets are available HERE.
In 2018, the band released its seventh studio album, All At Once. The album was produced by Matt Bayles (Pearl Jam, Mastodon) and was largely comprised of experimentation, with arrangements meant to evoke the energy and spontaneity of their live performances. The band set out to make an album in the spirit of a salon-style gallery show, where larger pieces provide an eye-level focal point to a galaxy of smaller works.
Screaming Females is from New Brunswick, New Jersey and includes Marissa Paternoster on guitar and vocals, Jarrett Dougherty on drums, and Mike “King Mike” Abbate on bass. They have been on NPR, Last Call with Carson Daly, and MTV and played with Garbage, Throwing Muses, Dinosaur Jr., The Dead Weather, Arctic Monkeys and others.
Back in 2005, Paternoster and Abbate formed a high school band called Surgery On TV. Dougherty joined the band and they changed their to Screaming Females. They got their start in the basement show scene of New Brunswick, New Jersey, where concerts were held in the houses of various bands, students, and residents, so people under 21 can attend. Screaming Females self-released the albums Baby Teeth in 2006 and What If Someone Is Watching Their T.V.? in 2007. The band then signed with Don Giovanni Records, which later re-released these two early albums.
