Click for hi-res version

New Bedford, MA – In anticipation to the band’s self-titled EP, out this fall on Paper + Plastick Records, A WILHELM SCREAM have announced a slew of new tour dates across the UK, Europe, Canada and the U.S. While overseas the band will play festival dates, such as the Reading and Leeds festivals, before hitting North America on a club tour that includes a date at Gainesville’s eighth installment of The Fest (more info here: Confirmed tour dates are listed below, but there will be many more announced in the coming weeks. Please continue to check the bands MySpace page for updates.

"In case you hadn't noticed, A Wilhelm Scream haven't been on tour for a while (apparently the longest break in the last 6 years of the band!),” says Bri Robinson (bass/vocals). “I can't believe I'm saying this, but I can speak for all of us in saying that we're aching to sweat, smell, lift gear and wait around for Mike [Supina - guitar] to finish brushing his teeth when we're already running late. A month from now, we'll be hopping on a plane to tour Europe, working our way from Prague up to the Reading/Leeds festivals, and also getting our first taste of Ireland (which I'm assuming will taste like whiskey, or... potatoes... yes). After that, during the fall we'll be darting across Canada and doing the outer-perimeter of the States.”

Robinson continues to explain: “The reason for this long break from touring is because we took a crack at recording ourselves, putting together an EP which will be coming out on Paper + Plastick. This five song EP is an eclectic mix of all the avenues the band have gone down since Mute Print--and we'll be throwing them into the sets on these upcoming tours.”

A Wilhelm Scream produced and recorded the new EP at their Black & Blue studio in New Bedford, MA, along with their live sound engineer James Whitten. Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Minus The Bear, Shook Ones) is mixing the five song record, which the band says “is nearly 40 minutes of music and is full of surprises.”
