Brimstone Howl US and European Tour (and MP3)

Los Angeles, CA - February 28, 2008 - Nebraska's BRIMSTONE HOWL is heading back on the road in support of their debut Alive Record's release "Guts of Steel" - co-produced and engineered by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. The band will wrap their U.S. tour after performing several SXSW showcases then begin a month long European tour. Alive Records is currently offering an exclusive MP3 "Cyclone Boy," available for download on their website.

With a furious mix of 60's influenced garage and old school punk, Brimstone Howl's Alive Records debut has been described as "cranked lo-fi blues rock" by Uncut magazine, "razor sharp snake rock" by NME and "lo-fi, loose punk wallowing in the blues" by Kerrang. Delivering in-your-face live performances, they describe themselves as "Guitar sluts and hook thieves with hearts of chrome, but with pretty good lyrics," and their music as "burnt blues, steady tom beats, and looooooowwwwwd fuzz."

Brimstone Howl is rounded out by John Ziegler (guitar/vocals), Nick Waggoner (guitar), Austin Ulmer (bass) and Calvin Retzlaff (drums).

"If retro-styled garage rock gave you an icky feeling in 2007, take two listens to Guts of Steel and burn your red-and-white clothes in the morning. Production by Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach give Brimstone Howl some requisite vintage-sounding reverb, but there's nothing reverent about these Nebraskans'unholy hot-wiring of the Sonics, the Damned and the Blues Explosion." - MAGNET Magazine
