Coming in hot on December 11, 2021 for the final show of their second run of the pandemic, legendary North California, cosmic rock stalwarts Howlin Rain hit Pappy & Harriet's in Pioneertown California full of adrenalized confidence, deep grooves and their signature, expansive guitarmony-laden jams.
Over nearly 20 years, Howlin Rain have become the quintessential independent American rock 'n' roll band: a steam-spitting Hydra of cranked guitars, kicking asphalt dust through a kaleidoscoping travelogue of desert motels and dives, volleying forth transmissions of sci-fi poetry from the blacktop veins of this cracked and aching country.
Howlin Rain has announced a new series of live albums entitled, 'Under the Wheels.' The series is intended to be a no-rules, anything goes portrait of the band, culled from multi-track live recordings made on the road. The debut installment, 'Under the Wheels: Live From The Coasts (Volume 1)' is set for August 30th release via Howlin Rain founding member Ethan Miller's Silver Current Records.
Fresh off a riveting performance this past weekend at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco, Howlin Rain has announced a seven-date West Coast tour in January 2019. The headline run begins in the Northwest with shows at Sunset Tavern in Seattle and Doug Fir in Portland before jutting to Southern California with stops at The Casbah in San Diego and The Echo in Los Angeles. The band then heads back to their Bay Area stomping grounds for a tour closer at The Independent.
Howlin Rain has announced the release of their fifth studio album, 'The Alligator Bride,' due June 8 via founding member Ethan Miller's artist run label, Silver Current Records. A set of swampy, ragged, and unapologetic rock 'n' roll, Miller's merry band of pranksters tracked the record over three days with engineer Eric "King Riff" Bauer at the Mansion in San Francisco, playing live to tape and cutting the material in first and second takes.
