Well, this band DOES have a screaming female... but it's just one. And she can shred on guitar.

for those of you who haven't heard of them, check out the myspace. They're from New Brunswick, NJ, and are slowly but surely gaining popularity, as they should... I'm just curious of how many of you are aware of them.

Heard about these guys (and girl) a while back. Have a few of their albums. They rock, plain and simple.

heh, yeah! saw that/heard that. I seriously predict they're gradually going to get the attention they deserve. Europeans are gettin' a taste as we speak.

I think I speak for everyone when I say "thank Christ for that."

And this band is pretty good. I've slept on them for far too long.

They're alright. I just wish their singer knew how to sing.


But if that happened, it would really mess with her unique vocal delivery

A lot of people comment on that, but it's a fine line... people I know who immediately hate a band with bad vocals have said they like her voice...

She CAN sing, and shows it on their latest album (which she doesn't scream on at all, by the way). Live is a different story, but another factor in the singing is how it's written. Marissa has said she writes the vocals after the music, and often writes phoenetically.

Someone put it well that it's between being extremely annoying or so different and great. Anyone agree she sounds like a female Glen Danzig?

Cool band, my band played with them a couple of times. Maybe not the best singer, but she's a pretty sweet guitarist.

I haven't acquired their newest album, but the albums I have heard I really can't stand the singing. I would enjoy their music much better if she sung different.

They all kind of stick to me for different reasons, although WiSiWTTV not as strong...

Oh, and this is pretty cool:

**** me, they're good. I'm going to sound sexist, but she is a pretty skilled guitarist. Didn't expect that.

I can't find any of their records.


:/ it's easy to get them online though, I think you can even mail in cash to them. They're still fairly DIY. They're also becoming easier to find- I saw their stuff in both Ameoba Records in Hollywood and in Newbury Comics in Northampton, MA. here's their store if you want to give that a shot: http://www.screamingfemales.com/store_usa.html

And yeah, about her vox. Even for people who are more accustomed to more mainstream female vocal styles, hers has improved significantly on the alst album and sounds great, not just different.

And Due07, it's footage from the same show they played. They more or less just had that show filmed and the edited footage shown on Carson Daly.

And it's amazing how I was still blown away at how good they are at the last show I went to (and could get into- went to the House of Vans one and was one of the people left in the rain )

Just got tickets to see them in October because it was only 8 bucks and I heard that their shows are completely nuts.

Started listening through their stuff last and and holy crap! This... this is exactly what I like.

Anyone know what else I should be expecting when I see them, aside from lots of awesome-induced boners?

They have a really good sound live- not incredibly loud, and always have a good mix (except vocals sometimes, but that's mostly due to the soundguy/venue). They get into it well, although nothing over the top and shit like that.

Seeing 'em live tonight. Soooooooo pumped. They just did an interview on our college radio station, and apparently they're done writing their next album, so hopefully I'll get to hear some new stuff

Saw them open for Against Me! in June. I was impressed the Lemuria, the first band, but then Screaming Females came on and blew me away. Bought their most recent album from the singer/guitarist at the booth, I can definitely see them going places. Took a while for me to listen to them again after the show though, because if you haven't seen Against Me!, that show is the only thing on your mind for quite a while after.

They played at least one new song, and it had a jaw-droppingly amazing riff throughout, even for a Screaming Females song.

Everyone should see them this tour if they come close enough to you. The Underground Railroad to Candyland is just as good live (never heard of them until I saw them with Screaming Females on Monday, now they're in heavy rotation on my computer). Very much worth your money.
