Perth’s The Growl To Join Tame Impala In Tour Across USA

The Growl

Perth collective The Growl finished 2012 on a high thanks to the incredible reaction they received from Tame Impala’s fans after supporting their fellow West Australian’s on their national Lonerism album launch tour. With their first 7” vinyl Clever Leaver (August 2012) in hand, they made their way around the country opening each night, winning new fan, after new fan, creating a wave of word of mouth that most bands would kill to ride.

2013 has an even better projection for the band, kicking off with the news that they will join Tame Impala on their USA tour through February and March, returning home in April just in time to release their debut LP, What Would Christ Do??

What started out as a bedroom based recording project for founding members front-man Cameron Avery and guitarist Clinton Oliver, is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with on the local and international stage thanks to their passionate and ever growing fan base, intense live show and solid Triple J (winning the Unearthed performance slot for Big Day Out Perth 2012) and community radio support.

The Grow will headline their own national album launch shows mid 2013, stay tuned for details.

“Avery was like an evangelical preacher trembling under the weight of God as he was shaking, thrashing, and staggering around the stage, “growling” (there it is) like a man possessed.” – Drum Media

“Combining stripped-down rock’n’roll and primal blues-based riffs with dashes of thrash, chaotic rockabilly and psychedelic rock, suitably played with psychotic menace, the quixotic sextet pulsated through their 40 minute set, every note a perfect thrill, each shriek depraved.” – Xpress Magazine

“Grimy, sexy, confident blues rock that will leave the taste of iron on your tongue.” – Beat Magazine

“The double-team drummers made as much racket as humanly possible up the back, their vocalist/guitarist was howling like a double shot of a nail through the foot and a woman who done did him wrong. It was mesmerizing, not to mention downright exciting… Absolutely fantastic” –

The Growl are…
Cameron Avery – Vocals/ guitar/ banjo/ keys/ blues harp | Clinton Oliver – Guitar/ bass | James Ireland – Keys/ accordion/ samples | Marc Early – Double bass | Michael Jelinek – Drums/ percussion | Samuel Kuzich – Drums/ percussion

What Would Christ Do?? Will be available digitally and in store April 2013.
