HOWL: Rhode Island Riff Manglers To Level North America Next Month

Rhode Island riff manglers HOWL will bring their sonic excess to the streets this Summer on a near month long headlining tour. Set to commence on July 20th in their hometown of Providence, the New Noise Magazine-sponsored trek will storm its way across the country, coming to a close on August 17th in Portland, Oregon. Support will be provided by label mates Lord Dying.

Said the band of the upcoming journey: “Dicks in hand, we will bring the riff to the holy land.”

HOWL will be touring in support of their Bloodlines full-length, recently discharged via Relapse Records. Delivering 40 inexorable minutes of lead-footed metallic dirge, Bloodlines entered the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #50, the Billboard Hard Music Chart at #57 and Billboard’s Indie Music Chart #173 upon its first week of release!

Bloodlines is currently streaming in its entirety at the band’s official BandCamp page HERE. Order your copy HERE. And if you missed it, don’t forget to peep the band’s Conner Owens-directed video for “Demonic” now playing at THIS LOCATION.

“… the type of galloping, growling, grot-filled effort you expect from a Motörhead shirt wearing metal band.” – Decibel

“…deliciously vicious…” – MetalSucks

“…consistently compelling… — Blabbermouth

Bloodlines is awesome and you should go buy it. If you don’t you are making a mistake.” – SMN News

“…to simply label HOWL as pure doom is to potentially limit their appeal. I’ve no doubt if you’re a fan of High On Fire or Electric Wizard, this would be an excellent addition to your library. That said their sound should equally have the heads of Iron Maiden fans and corpse painted true metal warriors banging alike.” – Ave Noctum

“…if you like imp shrieking, wah-imbued stunt guitar, sludge chugs, and lyrics about demons, Bloodlines just might be up your alley.” – Mxdwn

“…a fantastic way to spend an afternoon waxing philosophic or a night getting beaten to death by a group of angry Rhode Islanders…” – Dead Rhetoric

“Bloodlines features enough powerful riffs and angry attitude to sate the mainstream, while the underground will dig the overall feeling of doom and hatred. Did I mention the utterly stellar songwriting?” – Ghost Cult

“…the equivalent of being punched repeatedly in the gut with brass knuckles and then pushed down the mouth of an active volcano.” – American Aftermath

“If [debut album] Full of Hell was a tsunami, this album is a sniper attack.” – Alternative Control
