After nearly 30 years since first emerging from DC’s punk
underground, Scream – the band that gave the world Dave Grohl (you may have
heard of him) – has returned with the release of Scream’s Complete Control Sessions. A seven song EP recorded live
in Grohl’s Studio 606 this past February (with John Lousteau and Scream behind
the board), it picks up where the band’s 1993 swansong, “Fumble” left
off. Known for their incendiary live shows, urgent mix of punk, Bad
Brains/Clash-inspired dub, and rock-and-roll swagger, Scream 2011 features the
original lineup of vocalist Pete Stahl, guitarist Franz Stahl, bassist Skeeter
Thompson, drummer Kent Stax and newcomer guitarist Clint Walsh.
Scream’s Complete Control Session will be the second in a series of studio recordings that air on SideOneDummy
Records co-owners’ nationally syndicated all punk rock “Complete Control
Radio” show. The music will be released on 10″ vinyl and via digital
download on August 16th via SideOneDummy.
Scream is currently playing shows in North Carolina
with Corrosion of Conformity and in Washington,
DC with OFF! The band will be
announcing more tour date this summer around the release of the new album.
