Throughout their lifetime as a band, Screaming Females have moved against the prevailing winds. Over six albums and more than a decade of touring, they have remained deeply individual and steadfastly DIY. Each new album has been a reaction to the last, a chance for the band to challenge itself and its audience by switching course and subverting expectations.

All At Once is Screaming Females seventh record, an album that captures the band at its most ambitious and expansive. The trio spent a month recording with Bayles in Seattle, splitting time between London Bridge Studio and Red Room. They employed an expanded palette of instrumentation (organs, wurlitzers, synthesizers) and even a few guests (Fugazi's Brendan Canty adds a second drum set to Soft Domination).

The expectations that surround being in a band have changed a lot since Screaming Females started up in 2005. Part of that is the shift into an internet-enhanced culture, where experience of bodies in a room is sometimes subjugated by data, metrics, and the projection of identity through digital means. All At Once is a reminder there's a hopeful and joyful energy to underground music-making. Patience, perseverance, and long term dedication still work.

Heavyweight double vinyl produced by Don Giovanni Records in 2018. Gatefold sleeve.
