Louisville two-piece GRLwood call themselves "scream-pop," and that's just about the perfect way to sum up their sound, which has one foot in underground '90s screamo and the other in the same decade's poppy post-grunge. Those sounds have both made some pretty major comebacks within the modern indie rock scene in recent years, and it's cool to hear a band doing them both at once in such an appealing way. They've also got elements of queercore and feminist punk in the uncompromising lyricism of their upcoming sophomore album I Sold My Soul To The Devil When I Was 12, which drops this Friday (8/2) via sonaBLAST! Records. One of its songs, "I Hate My Mom," is streaming now, and it's an angsty, catchy, driving indie-punk ripper that's one of the album's most memorable songs. It's not totally indicative of how the rest of the album sounds, though, so stay tuned for this Friday to hear the rest. Listen to "I Hate My Mom," watch a recent live session video, and stream the band's 2018 debut album Daddy below.

GRLwood are also going on tour in support of another, very different kind of genre-defying band, Man Man. That cool pairing hits NYC's Brooklyn Bowl on October 1 (tickets).

GRLwood also play Gathering of the Juggalos this weekend. All dates are listed below.
