New Jersey DIY-punk luminaries Screaming Females have announced their seventh studio album All At Once, due out February 23, 2018 on Don Giovanni Records.

Recorded in Seattle’s London Bridge Studio and Red Room, the band collaborated with producer Matt Bayles (Soundgarden, Mastodon) “to help tease out the dynamism of the band’s live improvisations, and encase them into one crisp, cohesive shell.”  (Rolling Stone). Last month, the band shared the blistering new track, “Black Moon,” the first since their critically acclaimed sixth studio album Rose Mountain in 2015.

Rolling Stone announced All At Once and debuted the “Glass House” video directed by Kate Sweeney.

Now more than a decade into its existence, Screaming Females can claim something that few of their peers possess in a comparable capacity: experience. “When you’ve been a band for 12 or 13 years, the resources can dry up and you just go back to what feels comfortable,” explains Jarrett Dougherty. “The other option is that you develop stuff that a younger band would not have been able to do.”

All At Once is the evidence of that growth — in its sprawl and scope, but also in its subtleties. “A song like ‘Glass House’ is something we knew we were capable of, but it took a while to fully embrace,” says singer/guitaris, Marisa Paternoster. “It’s very simple — just bass, drums, and two simple riffs. In the past, I might have insisted on adding more. Practicing self-restraint is something I have consciously been trying to do.”

The expectations that surround being in a band have changed a lot since Screaming Females started up in 2005. All At Once is a reminder there’s a hopeful and joyful energy to underground music-making. Patience, perseverance, and long term dedication still work.

Formed in 2005, Screaming Females is singer/guitarist, Marisa Paternoster, bassist Michael Abbate and drummer, Jarrett Dougherty.

The album, available for pre-order, will include a bonus album of demos.
