This Band Doesn’t Suck | The Growlers

The Growlers Sound…According to Alex Knost
“They have experimented with recording techniques that have the ability to “bend sound” in ways only drugs can. By now this “bent sound” has been perfected in their live act that some onlookers call “groovy” and or “sick”. The groovy unexcelled value in Lo fidelity sound is their stock and trade. They are the result of a combination of skilled modern engineering techniques and the very finest outdated recording and amplified equipment.”

Formed in: A garage in Dana Point in 2006…like any good band, duh.

Genre: Beach Goth, a combination of Garage rock, psychedelic rock

Members:
Brooks Nielson -Vocals
Scott Montoya -Drums
Matt Taylor -Lead guitar, vocals
Anthony Perry- Bass
Kyle Straka -Rhythm guitar and keyboard
