It’s harder to get excited about future releases when there’s so much music being released every day. But there are some exceptions. When the Screaming Females announce new album ‘All At Once’, I immediately pay attention. Not only because it’s likely to be part of my soundtrack to the next year. But also because pre-ordering comes with some significant benefits.
All At Once is the 7th album from the trio, and will be released on February 23rd, 2018. It’s produced by Matt Bayles, who worked on their previous record, the brilliant Rose Mountain. He’s also produced the likes of Mastodon and Soundgarden. And the recordings in Seattle’s London Bridge Studio and Red Room included adding additional instruments into the mix, along with Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty guesting as a second percussionist on ‘Soft Domination’.
If you aren’t already a fan of Screaming Females, then you’re missing out on some exciting alternative pop punk. Singer and guitarist Marissa Paternoster has rightfully earned a reputation for her six string skills. Add her memorable and sometimes mesmerising vocal style, and it’s understandable that occasionally the talents of drummer Jarrett Dougherty and the epically-named King Mike (Mike Abbate) on bass aren’t mentioned enough…
And if you don’t want to take my word for it, they’ve played with some legendary names including Garbage, Throwing Muses and Dinosaur Jr. Fortunately they’ve also released new single Glass House.

So if All At Once isn’t out until February, why get excited now? Well, in addition to the CD or double LP released by Don Giovanni records, there are some limited editions. And a pre-order bonus for anyone sticking with vinyl.
So if you pre-order a vinyl edition, you’ll also get a limited 7″ single featuring the covers of Shake It Off and If It Makes You Happy recorded live for the AV Club Under Cover series. And the version of Shake It Off makes that definitely worthwhile. And it’s just £22.99
While the standard LP gets you the pre-order single, there’s also a Limited Edition triple LP which has all the above, plus an exclusive bonus LP with demo material. Good for $31.99.
Sadly the $149.99 Gallery Edition is already sold out. Lucky buyers get the tri-fold jacket with 3 LPs. And a hand painted sleeve signed and numbered by Marissa Paternoster, plus a limited signed 8×10 photo of the band. Only 10 were available to buy, so it’s not a shock they’ve already gone…
Anyway, if you want the pre-order vinyl bonus, you can order your copy of All At Once now via Don Giovanni Records. The previous releases are also available, or you can order them at various prices from other retailers.
