Screaming Females Premiere “I Don’t Mind It” Video, Extend Tour

I had the pleasure of catching Screaming Females open for Ted Leo at Lee’s this year. After a few songs they really started to win me over, and by the end of their set I was convinced. Now it’s your chance to check out the band, because they’ve recently premiered their new video and have offered up a free MP3 off their new record Castle Talk as well. You’ll find both — as well as some extended tour dates — after the jump!

Last year, Screaming Females toured relentlessly in support of their critically acclaimed third album Power Move. Their hard work landed them spots opening for Dinosaur Jr., Throwing Muses, and Jay Reatard, plus dates touring with Arctic Monkeys and the Dead Weather.

But Screaming Females’ success did not come overnight: it came after four years of playing over 300 self-booked shows at nontraditional show spaces, sleeping on floors around the country, self-releasing their first two albums, and breathing new life into the New Brunswick, New Jersey DIY basement show circuit. And on their forthcoming September 2010 LP, Castle Talk, the trio proves their abilities as more than just a pint-sized guitar shredder. Castle Talk showcases their growth together as a unit, as a band, with some of their most complex and confident songwriting to date.
