New Video / 10th Anniversary Tape Box from Screaming Females

Screaming Females at Starland Ballroom, 7/17/15.

"Empty Head"

Screaming Females have kept extremely busy since the release of their stellar Rose Mountain. They're just about to leave for a monthlong tour that will bring them to almost every corner of this great nation. And just over the last week, Screaming Females released both a new video and a commemorative cassette box set of their 10-year run as a band.

First, the video. "Empty Head" is the opening track on Rose Mountain and features the combination of pop and hard rock that is Screaming Females at their best. In addition to being one of the best frontpeople in all of rock music, singer / guitarist Marissa Paternoster is also an accomplished and distinctive illustrator. The video features several of her creature creations in stop motion animation superimposed on a stark cityscape. The Tobias Stretch-directed clip is wild, strange, and pretty amazing.

Now, the box set. Amazingly, the New Brunswick trio have been at it for 10 years now. To celebrate the anniversary, Screaming Females have released a 10th anniversary tape box set that includes "Every Album - Every B-Side." It also features some of Paternoster's artwork.

You can order that over at

And, hey. Speaking of Marissa Paternoster the artist, you should also follow her on instagram where she's been showing some of her work and offering it for sale.

Check out the full set of Screaming Females tour dates below, and here's hoping we see them back in Asbury Park soon. Before, say, the October closure of Asbury Lanes.
