YOWL share new track ‘John The Collector’ as part of Jäger Curtain Call 2018

The South Londoners play at The Lexington this Thursday 15th November.

This autumn, we’ve been bringing Jäger Curtain Call back for a fourth year in an all-new, souped up incarnation. Putting three bands into the studio and then sending them out for three shows in London, Manchester and Glasgow, it’s the biggest year of the programme yet and we’re really rather excited indeed.

Having already played host to Hull punks LIFE - who played in Manchester last month - now comes the turn of South Londonders YOWL, who’ll be playing at The Lexington in London later this week. Tickets for the show - taking place on Thursday 15th November, with support from Sistertalk and Lumer - are on sale now.

Ahead of their live show in the capital, the band have now shared their new track ‘John The Collector’, which was recorded as part of the Jäger Curtain Call programme at London’s Tileyard Education Studios.

Talking of the track, singer Gabriel Byrde has said: “It’s a loose delve into the male psyche. It’s about a guy who tries to open up a little more and realises the only way he can do that is to murder his friends and stick their faces onto his walls so he has someone to talk to at all times.”
