We, Screaming Females, will be releasing a new EP, entitled "Chalk Tape," at this year's Don Giovanni Records Showcase on Feb 9 at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. Hear a new song from the EP called "Poison Arrow" here - http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/14817-poison-arrow/. "Chalk Tape" will be released as a limited edition cassette tape and digital download.
"Chalk Tape" is a home recording project that we undertook over the course of the last year. After the process of writing, preparing for, and recording Ugly, we wanted to take on a completely different project. The writing process for SF is totally organic. We get together and jam until something interesting happens. For Chalk Tape we decided to challenge ourselves by taking the complete opposite approach. For these songs, we started by creating a list of musical ideas which we wrote down on a chalk board in our practice space (aka Grandma's basement). We attacked each of these ideas and quickly recorded them with absolutely no rewrites. I think the result is exciting and quite different from all our other output.
Get tickets to the Don Giovanni Records Showcase to ensure that you get a shot at one of the limited edition cassette versions of the release.
