Howler are a four piece indie - rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The group consists of Jordan Gatesmith on lead guitar and vocals, Brent Mayes on drums, Ian Nygaard on guitar and Max Petrek on bass.
Newbies to Rough Trade records and with critics pinning them as 2012's Vaccines or NME's 2nd coming of The Strokes, with NME naming them their #3 Best New Band of 2011 and included Jordan Gatesmith in their list of the 50 Coolest People of 2011.
The release of their debut album America Give Up received great reviews with citations such as 'America's next great guitar hope.' A fanastic new band give the album & ep a listen and if you like what you hear go out and buy it as for once they are one of the bands in my humble opinion who live up to the hype.
