Screaming Females - Ugly

Soon, the great New Jersey punk trio Screaming Females will release Ugly, their fiery new Steve Albini-produced album; check the gruesomely fun “It All Means Nothing” video. Below, we’ve got a download of “Expire,” a rocket-boosted album track that shows the humungous wail and crazy axe dexterity of leader Marissa Paternoster.

  1. 9 California dates, 0 Massachusetts dates. Cool.

    • Right?! I am both outraged and really bummed.

      • In their defense, they recently did a short tour of the east coast but they were all at indie record shops and not actual venues. They also came through my area three times in the past year (Luckily, I was able to catch them) so I don’t think it’s a matter of them leaving any part of the country out in the cold, just a matter of having to wait a bit longer.

  2. This whole LP is incredible. Every song.

  3. Yeah, NM! Let’s hope they don’t cancel like The Men did last year.

  4. Why the vibrato vox in EVERY song, though? Every time another song comes out, I’m like “oh she won’t use vibrato again” and then she does! Every time! Songs and melodies and guitar playing are awesome; just feel that vocal style is tired / too conscious of itself.

  5. 6/13 Cermemony w/ Screaming Females @ The Space – http://www.manicproductions.org for info
