The Growlers Announce BEACH GOTH TOUR 2018

The Growlers take their swirling psychedelic carnival on the road this fall, bringing their Beach Goth Tour 2018 across America and into the hearts, minds, and concert halls of several lucky European cities. Led by singer Brooks Nielsen, music director Matt Taylor and guitarist Kyle Straka, the band will be joined by long-time Growlers touring members Brad Bowers (bass), Adam Wolcott (keyboards) and Richard Gowen (drums).

The tour comes hot on the heels of Beach Goth 2018, the band's annual event held on Sunday, August 5, 2018 at Los Angeles State Historic Park. This year's lineup includes The Voidz (with Julian Casablancas, producer of The Growlers 2016 LP City Club), The Drums, Hatchie, Jonathan Richman, GWAR, Doug E. Fresh, Youth of Today, Yellowman, Bushwick Bill, Starcrawler, Kirin J Callinan and more.

As with all things Growlers, the Beach Goth Tour 2018 brings the party to the people, delivering a multisensory concert experience full of variety acts, drag queens, killer bands and a mental stage design. Details on all above plus support acts will be announced soon. As always, costumes are encouraged.

About The Growlers

Since the release of their first LP Are You In or Out? In 2009, The Growlers have forged their own twisted path on the global music scene. They're the party band that grew into a traveling circus that spawned their own event, Beach Goth. Lead singer Brooks Nielsen draws a particular devotion among Growlers fans, as does chief cohort Matt Taylor, The Growlers' music director and lead guitarist. Their most recent LP was 2016's City Club, produced by Julian Casablancas, which saw them expand their palette to include West African, dance, and electronic influences. The band is currently in the studio with Jonathan Rado (Foxygen) and Shawn Everett (The War On Drugs) and preparing for their upcoming Beach Goth World Tour.
