Published Jan 21, 2014Minneapolis rock act Howler rode a wave of success for their debut EP This One's Different and its follow-up, 2012's America Give Up. Now, the group will return with a sophomore full-length.
The new record is called World of Joy and sees the band once again teaming up with producer Jordan Gatesmith.
"The songs and the record, ultimately, became accounts of Ian, Max, Rory, and I living and dreaming passionately," frontman and founder Jordan Gatesmith said in a press release. "The record is supposed to be almost like a jukebox at some sloppy bar in Minneapolis playing things like: Thin Lizzy, the Replacements, the Modern Lovers, Kiss, the Smiths, the Stooges, and other randomly assorted bands. It's a tribute to our love of rock'n'roll and to the lineage of that genre we so admire."
World of Joy will be available on March 25 via Rough Trade. The album cover is available above, while a video for album track "Don't Wanna" is available to stream below.
