Shout Out Louds (SOLD OUT)
20 years ago, Swedish indie legends Shout Out Louds released their acclaimed debut album 'Howl Howl Gaff Gaff', featuring now iconic indie hits such as 'Please Please Please', '100°' and 'Very Loud'. The album kick-started a long international career with TV appearances on David Letterman and Jay Leno and global tours with the hottest bands of the day such as The Strokes and Kings of Leon. During spring of 2024, the band will perform three exclusive Swedish shows, playing the debut album in its entirety.
Shout Out Louds was formed in Stockholm in 2002 under the name Luca Brasi. After the name change, a demo version of the upcoming single "Very Loud" was included in the music magazine Sonic's CD sampler (November 2002) and immediately became one of the most requested songs in the history of the sampler.
In March 2003 the EP "100° EP" was released and in the fall of the same year the debut album "Howl Howl Gaff Gaff" was released. The following year Shout Out Louds signed a record deal with the American major label Capitol Records in Los Angeles and in 2005 "Howl Howl Gaff Gaff" was released globally with some new songs.
With the debut album behind them, the band toured all over the world, both as a headliner and as a support act for bands like The Strokes, Kings of Leon and The Magic Numbers. Shout Out Louds have also played the Coachella festival twice.
Shout Out Louds is very much looking forward to stepping back into the old bubble and tells us:
"After rehearsing in a friend's parents' garage for a few disruptive months, 20 years ago we entered a music studio for the very first time. In a small studio in Hjorthagen, Stockholm, there was also a real producer - the legendary Ronald Bood - who had just recorded debut bands like The Plan and Mando Diao. Little did we know then that the songs that became 'Howl Howl Gaff Gaff' would take us all over the world, on a tour that lasted almost non-stop for four years. We were overwhelmed, dazed and tested in ways we never imagined, but that's how we became the band we still are today. Now we're stepping back into that bubble and playing our debut album live in its entirety. Some of the songs we've never performed before, and some we haven't played in the last 15 years. It will be incredibly nice to revisit the transformative time the album represents for us and those of you who were there, and to meet those of you who have grown into our world over the years, in a very special context for us."
