Formed in 2011 by Ida Andersson-Norrie, Jens Hellman, Peter Lindström and Tobias Eriksson. Light Screamer made their live debut at the Live at Heart festival in Örebro the same year and has been playing at the festival every year since. In March 2013, Light Screamer played three highly acclaimed shows during the SXSW festival in Austin, TX which resulted in a record deal with local indie label Australian Cattle God Records. 2014 saw Light Screamer return to Austin for two shows, one of which was said to be the best show at SXSW, and in 2015 Slavestate Magazine's Lars Ekenryd named one of Light Screamer's shows "best live performance of the year".
Digital single release out now!
Released on July 1, 2015, the digital single release "Multiple / Drive" features two new tracks recorded during an afternoon in March 2014 at King Burns Hit Ranch, Austin, Texas. The first song, "Multiple" is a dark and twisted rocker that has been a steady part of the live set for quite a while. Featuring three out of four members on vocals, "Multiple" is three and a half minutes of pure Light Screamer attitude. Clocking in at almost ten minutes, "Drive" on the other hand is a semi-improvised jam that, while still retaining attitude, takes on a more dreamy approach. The songs were recorded and mixed by Cris Burns at King Burns Hit Ranch and mastered by Manuel Veniani at Absolute Sound, Milan, Italy.
