Having dropped their latest record ‘City Club’ in September of last year, California’s The Growlers will be making their way to Australia for a run of shows along the east coast. This is the band’s first Australian tour since 2015, and will see them deliver their enthralling live show once again to audiences in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Sydney, and Melbourne.
The Growlers will be playing songs from their latest full-length release ‘City Club’ (Cult Records), which was co-produced by Julian Casablancas (The Strokes / Founder of Cult Records) and Shawn Everett (Grammy Award winner for his work with Alabama Shakes). The album was recorded early 2016 in Everett’s studio in downtown Los Angeles.
Via Costa Mesa and down into the belly of Echo Park, The Growlers are the party band that grew into a travelling circus of psychedelia that influenced Burger and Lolipop Records and even spawned their own festival, Beach Goth. It’s a zonked-out, uniquely Californian vision of bleached blond hair and drunkard culture that many bands have imitated but none have managed to reproduce. Lead singer Brooks Nielsen draws the kind of devotion among Growlers fans that Jim Morrison once did. And they’ve built their cult following without a single album review in Pitchfork.
