In anticipation of the new album, City Club, next week by The Growlers, VICE/Noisey has premiered the new song, "Night Ride". 

Editor Kim Taylor Bennett states:  "One of the tasters from their imminent, most excellent fifth album City Club (out September 30th): A delicious, 13 track collection that weds a pack-a-day gruffness with deft pop hooks. There's a hypnotic, give-a-fuck 70s street swagger to it, thanks to the muscular basslines, but also a surfy swoon to Neilson's casual-cool croon. "

The album was co-produced by Julian Casablancas (The Strokes / Founder of Cult Records) and Shawn Everett (this year's Grammy Award winner for his work with Alabama Shakes). City Club was recorded earlier this year in Everett's studio in downtown Los Angeles, which served as inspiration for the album title and cover art.
Known for their relentless touring schedule and DIY work ethic, the band is one of the most exciting independent success stories of recent years.

Casablancas states: "The Growlers may be the most interesting band in the world, certainly one of the coolest. Nor gypsy, nor goth, nor surfer, nor punk, yet somehow all of them."

From the disco skronk of title track "City Club" to the William Onyeabor-inspired Afrogroove of "I'll Be Around," the record marks a twist on their Beach Goth sonics. It's still a swirl of reggae, punk, ragged country, and twangy psychedelia, but now with prominent synthesizers, danceable beats and some serious anthems.

Lead singer/songwriter Brooks Nielsen states: "I was really into Afrofunk when we made this record," says Brooks, "and a lot of English 70s punk I listened to as a kid, particularly when Jamaica was mixing in with all the punk kids."
The Growlers just kicked off their fall tour last week with multiple sellouts along the way to New York for release day at Webster Hall.  The 20 date US trek culminates with a return home to headline their 5th Annual Beach Goth Festival on October 22and 23in Orange County, California.
