Hardcore punks SCOWL announce US headlining tour, share new music video

2 mins read

Since the release of their debut album, How Flowers Grow, in November 2021 Santa Cruz, CA-based band SCOWL have been a non-stop force to be reckoned with. The band’s fierce display of hardcore-punk found them opening stadium-sized shows for Limp Bizkit this past spring, conquering the full U.S. with Destroy Boys, and touring Europe and the United Kingdom for the first time.

Not to mention absolutely standout festival performances at Outbreak (U.K.) and Sound and Fury (LA). Today the band announces a headlining tour hitting parts of the east coast U.S. and Texas starting October 24th, as well as an appearance at The Fest in Florida. Varied support comes from Restraining Order, Anklebiter, Flatspot Records labelmate’s Jivebomb, rapper Ghoulavelli, and Strange Joy. Tickets are on sale here now.

To get even more hyped for their live shows, Scowl has shared a music video for fan-favorite track “Fuck Around”. The video embodies the wild year 2022 has been for the rising band so far, strewn between dynamic performance shots and every day antics. Scowl will also support The Bronx, The Chats, and Drug Church on a North American run this fall, and head back to the U.K. with Stick To Your Guns and LANDMVRKS this November. A full list of tour dates can be found below.

Scowl is Kat Moss (vocals), Malachi Greene (guitar), Bailey Lupo (bass), and Cole Gilbert (drums).

Press :

“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

“Finding that balance between raw and catchy is hard to master, but Scowl hit the sweet spot like it is second nature. From the frenzied instrumental to vocalist Kat Moss’ brilliantly raspy delivery, this is as pure, pissed off and properly fun as punk gets” – Rock Sound

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