Screaming Females – “Expire” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Tom Breihan / March 28, 2012

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. We’ve also got their list of upcoming tourdates, and this is a band you need to see if you get a chance.
