Out January 24, 2019: Screamin’ Rebel Angels: Heel Grinder LP
A Post-Punk, Rockabilly Masterpiece For the New Year
Screamin’ Rebel Angels are proud to release their sophomore LP Heel Grinder on Hey-Lo Records out January 24th, 2019: thirteen lucky tracks of raging, stomping, rock ‘n roll, post-punk to ring in the new year. The band will be throwing their NYC record release show at the Mercury Lounge on January 25th, kicking off a string of dates on the East Coast, with West Coast, Canadian and European dates to follow.
The music video for Ooh! My Soul, the first single from Heel Grinder has already racked up +38k Facebook views and counting, and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/ADIX7xvKAgM
Laura Palmer’s Screamin’ Rebel Angels are relentless, as in they DO NOT RELENT. Neither in their rock and roll, nor in the industrious pursuit of their craft and business. As a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, illustrator and designer, Laura drives the music, business, and visual language of Screamin' Rebel Angels; a joyride into the universe of ferocious feminine power, primal rock 'n roll and a compelling creative spirit.
She also manages the band, its publishing company and its newly launched record label Hey-Lo Records. The band is truly a woman-owned small-business and takes its DIY credo to heart because they have to… it is either that or relent.
Screamin’ Rebel Angels’ sound is built upon a foundation of rockabilly but like The Clash and The Cramps before them, they take the style and run with it, making it into something timeless, exciting, and all their own. Screamin’ Rebel Angels are rockabilly the way Neko Case is country - they are, but that is really just the beginning of the story.
Live the band is incendiary. Palmer’s voice is a big as they come, and she is backed by purely top-shelf players. They burn up a room, and remind us why live music is a truly vital and necessary art form. In the studio they’ve managed to capture this lightning-in-a-bottle.
Production of Heel Grinder was handled by Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu, Bob Mould, Frank Black) and the album leaps out of your speakers. This album is the antidote to a world full of down-tempo EDM, chill-out mixes, and music to make us point-and-click. Screamin’ Rebel Angels strive make you sweat, dance, shout, and jump, and they WON’T relent.

It was 2012 that four longhaired lads from Zürich started a band that completely dedicated itself to the sound of 80’s Rock. More than 80 shows later they are more determined than ever to reach out to both old and new fans with their original high-powered Music.
They recorded their first album in 2013 at the famous Tonmanufaktur Studios in Zürich. They were bold enough to call it “Greatest Hits”.
Two years later with the help of V.O. Pulver (Gurd, Poltergeist, Pulver and Panzer) at Little Creek Studio they produced and eventually released the album Wild! Wild! Wild!.
Then after some internal changes in 2016 including the addition of a second guitarist, King Zebra had to say goodbye to it’s singer Tom Hoochy Coo. One year later, Eric St. Michaels joined. With Eric’s longtime career as front man and shouter for the rock band China, this native-born American from New Jersey brought a distinctive voice and has contributed significantly to the newly defined sound of King Zebra. The first release with the new lead singer was called "Bad Idea".
In 2018 will find Eric St. Michaels, Lauer, Jerry, Ben and Michael on stage together and ready for action. Ladies and gentlemen, we loud & proudly present: King Zebra!
