Based in Minneapolis, Howler are Jordan Gatesmith (vocals / guitar), Ian Nygaard (guitar), France Camp (bass), Max Petrek (keyboard) and Brent Mayes (drums). What started as a side project for Jordan Gatesmith in 2010, quickly took off, catching the ear of the NME, which led to Rough Trade signing them up for a worldwide deal. The band are a straight forward rock band, in the tradition of the Modern Lovers but have a "surf thrash" edge that reminds one of the Cramps at times. Barely 19 years old, Jordan has already wrapped up his first US tour, and is currently in the studio finishing the full-length, and will be supporting The Vaccines' full UK tour in november.
The debut EP 'This One's Different' is out now. It is available from the Rough Trade Records Store on MP3 & LP. Their Debut full length is expected in early 2011.
