Unforgettable screams echo on the first track of GRLwood’s new record I Sold My Soul To The Devil When I Was 12 (released today, August 2). “Be nice to sad boys / or else, get shot” singer and guitarist Rej Forester retches with a throaty gurgle on “Get Shot,” a testament to the wide range of ways gun violence can pose a threat in everyday life. Later on the scream-punk album, Forester simplifies the message on “Donald:” “I am afraid for my body.” Simply put, the Louisville, Kentucky duo have a way of never mincing words when it comes down to denouncing misogynistic bullshit. Combined with a knack for pairing kinda surf-y licks with hardcore vocals, I Sold My Soul To The Devil When I Was 12 packs all the power of a sojourn with Satan himself. Wade through the heavy new album below.
