Hardcore-punks band SCOWL celebrating critically acclaimed album, touring with Limp Bizkit, Wargasm UK, Destroy Boys

2 mins read

Santa Cruz, CA-based hardcore-punk band SCOWL had quite the exciting past few months and are set to continue making 2022 their biggest year yet. The band will join forces with Limp Bizkit, $not, and Wargasm UK on tour starting April 28th through May 15th, including a stop in New York City at Madison Square Garden on May 13th. From there they’ll be doing a full U.S. run supporting Destroy Boys before heading over to the U.K. and Europe for a string of festival dates. This all comes hot off the heels of their acclaimed debut album, How Flowers Grow, released in November 2021 on Flatspot Records.

The ten songs on the album are a masterclass in how to write heartfelt punk and hardcore without losing the sense of youthful enthusiasm and fun that makes the genre compelling to begin with. The lyrics are delivered with a biting sense of anger and self-reflection, dealing with everything from personal betrayals to socio-economic strife. With an undisputed authenticity and intensity found in both their recordings and live show, Scowl has certainly planted a seed for their takeover of hardcore and beyond.

Scowl is vocalist Kat Moss, guitarist Malachi Greene, bassist Bailey Lupo, and drummer Cole Gilbert.

“Led by Moss’ formidable growl, the LP is an awesome burst of aggressive, street-punk-inflected hardcore that also hints at the band’s willingness to channel a diverse range of influences, from Sonic Youth to the Stooges.”
– Revolver

“How Flowers Grow is a dizzying, breathless howl of a debut and Scowl look set to make a big noise in the hardcore scene — and possibly beyond.” – Kerrang!

“Groovy, saxophone heavy hardcore fronted by the effortless toxicity (and at times, melodic) Kat Moss. If you don’t love them now, you will. And soon.” – SPIN

“If you like hardcore that breaks from tradition but doesn’t abandon it entirely, don’t miss this one.” – BrooklynVegan

“Scowl’s raw, scorching hardcore punk is a mighty force, and when the band goes left, as on the sweet and sax-laced “Seeds To Sow,” the hard songs just hit that much harder.” – Stereogum
