Screaming Females announce new LP Rose Mountain, celebrate 10th anniversary with modest cake

Happy 10th birthday, Screaming Females. Granted, we’re not quite there yet, but it’s never too early to start celebrating a decade of fine punk rock from New Brunswick’s finest. In fact, I’m reporting live from the Screamales’ 10-year birthday blowout. They made me agree not to photograph the event, but I sneaked this one shot for the superfans out there. Wish y’all could be here! Great news, though, you’ll soon be able to celebrate the life and times of Screaming Females with the group’s sixth album, Rose Mountain, out February 24 through Don Giovanni.

Listen to first single “Ripe” below. EDITORIALIZING COMING AT YOU: it’s awesome. Rose Mountain was produced by Matt Bayles, so hit the road (engineer of Screaming Females’ 2012 album Ugly) Steve Albini! And, um, I guess also hit the road Screaming Females themselves, who self-produced all of their other albums. Notable is the fact that that Bayles was the producer behind albums by Mastodon and The Sword, so Rose Mountain will likely feature a song about fighting a dragon or some sort of weird cyclops. I predict it is track 7, “Hopeless,” due to the difficulty of defeating dragons and other mythical beasts.

Rose Mountain tracklist:

01. Empty Head
02. Ripe
03. Wishing Well
04. Burning Car
05. Broken Neck
06. Rose Mountain
