Jersey punks Screaming Females are on tour, release new video

Jersey punks Screaming Females are on tour, release new video

"The trio's sixth album is a rocker's delight…"
– Rolling Stone
"How a bunch of Jersey punks spent a decade becoming indie rock's last guitar heroes."
"Screaming Females have carved out their own corner in this century's take on guitar rock. "
– Pitchfork
"..for all its DIY roots, every minute feels huge. This is basement punk writ arena-sized."
"face-melting shredding, classic rock structures, and a ruggedly stoned chorus."
"Screaming Females is the best rock band in the world right now."
– Stereogum
New Jersey DIY-punk trio Screaming Females released their critically acclaimed sixth album Rose Mountain, earlier this year and are taking their blazing punk rock heroics on a national summer tour.
The band is also sharing a new video for album track "Empty Head" which features life-size puppets of characters created collaboratively by director Tobias Stretch and the band. Drummer Jarrett Dougherty shares, "Tobias Stretch is an amazing video artist and we were very excited to work with him. He has developed a unique style of life-sized stop motion animation that uses the real world around us as the location. To fuse our esthetic with Tobias' style, Marissa and Tobias worked together to create two dimensional characters. We all worked to turn these characters into life-sized puppets and Tobias directed, shot and edited the video over many months. We are very pleased with the final look!" 
Formed in 2005, Screaming Females is singer/guitarist Marissa Paternoster, bassist Michael Abbate and drummer Jarrett Dougherty. The New Jersey DIY-punk trio self-produced their previous releases (with Steve Albini engineering their 2012 LP Ugly and the 2014 concert album Live at the Hideout) but overturned the long-standing, self-imposed rule this time by bringing in Matt Bayles (Mastodon, the Sword) as a producer.
