Screaming Females new album Rose Mountain is now available for pre-order! To celebrate the album's release the band has put together a bundle for people who pre-orders with an exclusive 3 pin set, t-shirt, and signed poster (not pictured above). This will be the only place to get the pins, t-shirt, and poster and once the pre-order period is over no more will be made. 

In addition, we are making a special version of this album for independent record stores. This version will come with a 2-song 7" single only available with the LP at independent record stores and is limited to 500 copies. 

Finally, we have put together an amazing release weekend to celebrate Rose Mountain with three shows with Priests, Tenement, and Vacation:

We are so excited to announce that we will be working with Downtown Boys on their debut album! Downtown Boys will be recording at Electrical Audio with Greg Norman for an album out in 2015. 
Downtown Boys are a bilingual political sax punk party from Providence, RI. They write songs about smashing the prison-industrial complex, racism, queerphobia, capitalism, fascism, boredom, and all things people tell us that try to close our minds, eyes, and hearts. They released a 7" on Sister Polygon records in February 2014 and are more than ecstatic and determined to continue on a wave of history with an LP on Don Giovanni Records and a summer tour in 2015. "Since we live in an age in which silence is not only criminal but suicidal, [we] have been making as much noise as [we] can" -James Baldwin

We are very excited to announce that we will be working with Pinkwash to release their debut album in 2015! After being told by almost everyone I knew that Pinkwash were one of the best bands they had ever seen, I finally got a chance to see them at Priests' record release show and they really were. Based in Philadelphia, Pinkwash released their demo on Sister Polygon in June and are recording an album early next year. If you get a chance to see them live, do it.

We are really excited to be working with Mal Blum on their next album due in the spring. Some may recognize Mal from their song with Chris Gethard on his album we released earlier last year, from their numerous appearances on his show (in fact it was Chris that first brought Mal to our attention years ago), from playing our free outdoor show in New Brunswick earlier this year, or from them touring over the last few years across the US. We couldn't be more excited to work with them on their next album. Mal is working on the album now, which is being produced by Marissa Paternoster for a spring release
