SIRIUSXMU PREMIERES NEW SINGLE, “I’LL BE AROUND”
The album was co-produced by Julian Casablancas (The Strokes / Founder of Cult Records) and Shawn Everett (this year’s Grammy Award winner for his work with Alabama Shakes). City Club was recorded earlier this year in Everett’s studio in downtown Los Angeles, which served as inspiration for the album title and cover art.
Known for their relentless touring schedule and DIY work ethic, the band is one of the most exciting independent success stories of recent years.
Casablancas states: “The Growlers may be the most interesting band in the world, certainly one of the coolest. Nor gypsy, nor goth, nor surfer, nor punk, yet somehow all of them.”
From the disco skronk of title track “City Club” to the William Onyeabor-inspired Afrogroove of “I’ll Be Around,” the record marks a twist on their Beach Goth sonics. It’s still a swirl of reggae, punk, ragged country, and twangy psychedelia, but now with prominent synthesizers, danceable beats, and some serious anthems.
Last night, indie tastemaker, SiriusXMU, premiered the new single, “I’ll Be Around“. This comes on the heels of the premiere of that album’s title track, “City Club,” on Casablancas’ new radio show, Culture Void several weeks back upon announcement.
The Growlers will head back out on the road this fall in both in support of the new album with dates in North America, Mexico, and Europe. The 20 date US trek culminates with a return home to headline their 5thAnnual Beach Goth Festival on October 22and 23in Orange County, California.
