CHICKS THAT SCREAM AND UNDERTHERADAR PRESENT: SCREAMING FEMALES (NJ, USA)
Formed in New Brunswick, NJ in 2005, Screaming Females is Marissa Paternoster (guitar, vox), Mike Abbate (bass), and Jarrett Dougherty (drums).
Over six albums and more than a decade of music making, the band has remained deeply individual and steadfastly DIY. They have also grown into one of the most dynamic and devastating touring bands going today.
Screaming Females toured New Zealand in 2016. Now, armed with their new record ‘All At Once’ they are back and hitting even more NZ cities!

Released in 2018, the New the New Jersey punk trios seventh full-length release All At Once, is the bands most expansive and imaginative work to date. A double LP that swings between surreal miniatures and solo-heavy sprawl. Concision takes a backseat to experimentation, with arrangements meant to evoke the energy and spontaneity of their live shows. It’s music built across a timeline that’s longer than our internet-enhanced moment typically tolerates and a testament to the band’s dedication and perseverance.

“Even at it’s bleakest, All At Once is sheer rock’n’roll joy from start to finish.” – Clash Music
“From the patient, rising tension and ecstatic release of the Black Sabbath-esque opening of ‘Glasshouse,’ right through to the heady-guitar-noodling-meets-full-throttle-pop-punk of closer, ‘Step Outside,’ Screaming Females manage to keep things, not just interesting, but wall-to-wall, grin-inducingly entertaining.” – The 405
