From their first LP Are You In or Out? (2009) to their latest LP Casual Acquaintances (2018), The Growlers have forged their own twisted path on the global music scene. Theyre the party band that grew into a traveling circus that spawned their own hit event, Beach Goth. Lead singer Brooks Nielsen draws a particular devotion among Growlers fans, as does chief cohort Matt Taylor, The Growlers music director and lead guitarist. Their most recent LP was 2016s City Club, produced by Julian Casablancas, which saw them expand their palette to include West African, dance, and electronic influences.Self-produced by core members Brooks and Matt, Casual Acquaintances brings back the grit and DIY majesty of vintage Growlers. With its overdriven synths and tender, twisted lyrics, the lead single Problems III bridges the gap between Beach Goth in its purest form and the dance floor punch that made City Club so compelling. Consisting of demos, works-in-progress and other unfinished business from the bands City Club sessions and featuring cover art by internet phenoms Aleia Murawski and Sam Copeland Casual Acquaintances defies expectation, delivering a fully-formed vision that stands alongside the bands finest, fuzziest work.The album premiered during week two of The Growlers Beach Goth Pop Up, July 26-29, at 1700 Naud St in Downtown LA in advance of the upcoming Beach Goth 2018 event held on Sunday, August 5, 2018 at Los Angeles State Historic Park. This years lineup includes The Voidz (with Julian Casablancas, producer of The Growlers 2016 LP City Club), The Drums, Hatchie, Jonathan Richman, GWAR, Doug E. Fresh, Youth of Today, Yellowman, Bushwick Bill, Starcrawler, Kirin J Callinan and more. Next up, the band hits the road on their upcoming Beach Goth World Tour.
