Recorded in Seattle’s London Bridge Studio and Red Room, the band collaborated with producer Matt Bayles (Soundgarden, Mastodon) “to help tease out the dynamism of the band’s live improvisations, and encase them into one crisp, cohesive shell.” (Rolling Stone).
Now more than a decade into its existence, Screaming Females can claim something that few of their peers possess in a comparable capacity: experience. “When you’ve been a band for 12 or 13 years, the resources can dry up and you just go back to what feels comfortable,” explains Jarrett Dougherty. “The other option is that you develop stuff that a younger band would not have been able to do.”
All At Once is the evidence of that growth — in its sprawl and scope, but also in its subtleties. “A song like ‘Glass House’ is something we knew we were capable of, but it took a while to fully embrace,” says singer/guitaris, Marisa Paternoster. “It’s very simple — just bass, drums, and two simple riffs. In the past, I might have insisted on adding more. Practicing self-restraint is something I have consciously been trying to do.”
Formed in 2005, Screaming Females is singer/guitarist, Marisa Paternoster, bassist Michael Abbate and drummer, Jarrett Dougherty.
“shredding New Jersey trio”
“[Ripe] kicks a whole lot of ass.”
“Screaming Females are best known for their aggressive punk rock and Marissa Paternoster’s guitar heroics”
– Rolling Stone
“Vocalist Marissa Paternoster roars over chunky guitar chops [on Empty Head] — her iconic snarl driving above colossal riffs — and the outro’s face-melting licks are the frayed ribbons that tie it all together.”
– SPIN, December Singles Mix
“Though album cut “Empty Head” is still marked by face-melting shredding, classic rock structures, and a ruggedly stoned chorus, it’s also among the most clear-headed songs the trio has released to date.”
