The Growlers are a band on the move. Within the past month alone, the Costa Mesa, CA quintet has announced a new video, a new EP, and a new tour.
This September, they're hitting the road as part of Burger Records' Burgerama Caravan of Stars with Gap Dream, Cosmonauts, and together PANGEA (they're also throwing their annual Beach Goth Party in October). Then, their label, Everloving Records, releases the Gilded Pleasures EP in November. But I'm most excited about the video for "One Million Lovers" off their third album, Hung at Heart. I liked the psych-country track from the start, but the silver-tinged, slightly NSFW clip, which recalls The American Astronaut, seals the deal by way of director Taylor Bonin's blend of handcrafted psychedelic effects and science fiction tropes for a fun and trippy experience.
The Growlers' Hung at Heart is out now on Everloving Records. The Burgerama Caravan of Stars Tour comes to Neumos on Sept 20. Ticket and other info here.
