Los Angeles underground indie favorites The Growlers have announced “part one” of a Summer 2020 North American tour. The 13-date trek is part of the band’s perpetual tour cycle and launches with a pair of rare Oklahoma shows (6/3 Tulsa + 6/4 OKC). The tour also features the band’s first Bonnaroo play since 2015 (6/13) and several California dates including three nights at the Grove of Anaheim (3/25, 3/26 + 3/27).

About the New LP Natural Affair
Led by singer Brooks Nielsen and music director/guitarist Matt Taylor, The Growlers released their most recent album, Natural Affair, late last year to critical acclaim on their own Beach Goth Records and Tapes (October 25, 2019). Natural Affair advances the band’s swampy DIY aesthetic into their sturdiest, synthiest, warmest sound yet, bolstered by Nielsen’s finest lyrics to date: social commentary, rhymes, and ruminations on the pleasures (and perils) of modern love. Listen to the album HERE.

Take The Growlers: The California group got its start when asked to play a house party… For more than a decade since, the band’s managed to keep that underground feeling, where every show feels like you’re seeing something special, like you’re part of an in-the-know community. But while The Growlers holds tight to its DIY ethos, the group’s grown a dedicated fanbase, including people like Dan Auerbach, Julian Casablancas and Ellen DeGeneres.”
