Howler is jut und heute in Berlin - wa
Howler is an indie rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The group consists of Jordan Gatesmith on lead guitar and vocals, Brent Mayes on drums, Ian Nygaard on guitar, Max Petrek on keyboard, and France Camp (real name Jay Simonson) on bass.
Howler has received international acclaim, most notably from NME, which named Howler their #3 Best New Band of 2011 and included Jordan Gatesmith in their list of the 50 Coolest People of 2011.
Nineteen year-old Gatesmith began Howler out of boredom in 2010. Before Howler, he had created other bands without much success. "I was starting bands what seemed like every other week," explained Gatesmith. "We had a metal band for a while. We had one called Gay Animals, another called A-Cups, but none of them really lasted that long". Gatesmith's friend Max Petrek joined Howler as the band's keyboardist. Ian Nygaard was already the guitarist of Nice Purse when Gatesmith included him in the band. Both Howler and Nice Purse were on the same record label, SO-TM. Drummer Brent Mayes knew Gatesmith from high school, although Mayes is four years older than Gatesmith, and is thus the oldest member of the band.
Howler released its first EP This One's Different in the United States on February 14, 2011. They later signed with Rough Trade Records in summer 2011, who released This One's Different in the United Kingdom on August 2, 2011. The EP received favorable reviews. NME writes that while Howler is not different from other bands, it does "make commonplace components fly with a brilliant nonchalance".
Howler's debut album America Give Up was released in January 2012. The band recently released the first track from their album "Back of Your Neck" for digital download off their website. Howler later released a music video for the song. Howler is currently on tour. The following countries are on their schedule United States, the UK, Europe, and Japan.
