At last! A live Screaming Females record! Recorded over two nights in Chicago by Steve Albini.
Here's what Steve Albini had to say about working with the band:
What attracted me to punk rock when it first exploded was that it was unpredictable and that no two bands had very much in common. Each band committed itself to a unique set of ideas, and it didn't matter what other bands were doing or what the audience might expect. Screaming Females are that same kind of wide-open punk rock, from before it condensed into a style and every band had to be taken on its own terms. They are a great band and I hope they keep going forever.
Screaming Females have been hailed as one of the best live bands and Marissa Paternoster has been praised as one of the best guitar players of all time. This live record makes the case for both of these accolades in a way that no studio album ever could. We cannot wait to share this thing with you in full, but to tide you over listen to them doing "Lights Out" below.
We also want to make this thing as special as possible for supporters of the band, and so we have 500 copies on clear vinyl for mail-order. In addition, the first 200 people to order CD or 2xLP versions will get a limited edition numbered unique photographic print of the band (more info below). Finally, people who pre-order on iTunes will get an immediate download of "Lights Out." Something for everyone.
