“Screaming Females is the best rock band in the world right now.”
Stereogum

New Jersey DIY-punk trio Screaming Females released their critically acclaimed sixth album Rose Mountain, earlier this year and are taking their blazing punk rock heroics on a national summer tour. Kicking things off July 17 th in their home state of New Jersey performing with The Bouncing Souls and Andrew Jackson Jihad, the band will make stops in Chicago, Omaha, Seattle, Los Angeles, Nashville, DC and more.

Setting out with a crystal clear vision to create songs both concise and melodic, the band explores a more streamlined sound, pushing vocal melodies and lyrical themes to the forefront. With that idea in mind, the band was thrilled to take on Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”, creating their own amped up rock ‘n roll rendition for AV Undercover which was released today.

Watch Screaming Females’ version of Taylor Swift’s
“Shake It Off” HERE and we encourage you to post & share.

Formed in 2005, Screaming Females is singer/guitarist Marissa Paternoster, bassist Michael Abbate and drummer Jarrett Dougherty. The New Jersey DIY-punk trio self-produced their previous releases (with Steve Albini engineering their 2012 LP Ugly and the 2014 concert album Live at the Hideout) but overturned the long-standing, self-imposed rule this time by bringing in Matt Bayles (Mastodon, the Sword) as a producer
