YOWL return with the snarling, vicious ‘Darkroom’

The band are heading out on a co-headline tour with Bristol’s LICE next week.

Londoners YOWL are heading out on a co-headline tour with Bristol’s LICE next week, and have shared new single ‘Darkroom’ to celebrate. It’s new video is playing first on DIY.

The follow-up to the hugely exciting ‘My Headache Likes To Speak’, ‘Darkroom’ is a snarling, vicious cut that showcases Gabriel Byrde’s swirling vocals better than ever before.

Coming complete with an intense video shot in London’s Tobacco Dock, ‘Darkroom’ is another step on YOWL’s dark, twisted path to becoming one of the country’s most exciting new bands.

The band’s tour with LICE starts in Glasgow on 12th October. A London show comes at the Sebright Arms on the 17th.
