Listen to the new EP from California band The Growlers

California band The Growlers are a bit of an underground sensation. They don’t play the biggest shows, and they’re not on the radio, but tracks like “Humdrum Blues” have gotten thousands of plays online, and the band is gaining more and more rock traction. The band’s new EP, Gilded Pleasures, isn’t out until next Tuesday, but is streaming now, below, exclusively on The A.V. Club.

The band is on tour now in Europe and will be playing a number of California dates this December. All upcoming shows are listed below.
