Relapse Records signs Howl

Official press release: Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Providence, RI's Howl. Howl (Vincent Hausman – guitars, vocals, Andrea Black – guitars, Robert Icaza – bass, Timmy St. Amour – drums) formed in 2006 and have already toured extensively with many like-minded bands including Kylesa, Torche, Young Widows, Coliseum, and more. Howl's Hausman commented on the signing: "We're very excited to be signed to Relapse. Right from the start, we've gotten the sense that the folks at Relapse care about the bands and their creative vision first, which is important in an industry too often concerned purely with profit, image, and commercial viability. Relapse also has an impressive roster of former and current bands, many of which we grew up listening to. It's humbling to now be part of that family." Relapse will first issue Howl's debut, self-titled EP this summer as the band continues writing for their first full-length. The EP will feature brand new artwork that can be previewed here. Audio samples taken from the EP can be heard now via the band's MySpace page. Hausman also commented on the reissue and forthcoming material: "We're very happy about the tremendous response we got from the demo, and we're excited it will see a proper release. In the meantime, we've been writing new material for our upcoming full-length and if you liked what you heard on the demo, you'll love what you'll hear on the album! The new stuff is darker, more developed, and everything is more extreme. Expect faces to melt."

Jamie Getz (Turmoil, Lickgoldensky, Gods & Queens) in regards to the girl in the band. "Dude, I know this sounds gay and all, but when I kiss her, it's just like, different, you know?"
