Scream Shout to release new album Threads in July

Scream! Shout! Say Nothing was born in an Irish pub ten years ago, with a collective shrug in agreement that the name wasn't important. After previous "serious bands" for all five members - Ben Davies, Ben Street, Chris Hollis, Dan Magee and Jamie Dunn - this would be a project with no aim other than making music they all enjoy.

 Within a year, the post-hardcore outfit were preparing to set off in a bus bought for £500 from a local pool team, to play gigs up and down the UK. Graffiti-style pool balls splashed across the side of their mechanically frail ride, with the help of their new label Scylla Records, and a large percentage of the staff of the RAC, Scream Shout played their first UK tour.
The following four years saw two EPs, support slots with Hell Is For Heroes, Enter Shikari, Don Broco and Deaf Havana, and many more tours (in a slightly less catastrophic bus). Then, in 2009, the band decided to begin writing a new record.
A five-year writing and recording process was not the original plan. But, true to the band's mission statement, this was not a project that was going to get in the way of 'real life', and real-life commitments outside of the walls of the studio like university, house-moving, job changes and a six-month marine biology project in Cambodia (no, really) meant that sessions laying down tracks for the new album were few and far between.
So here we are. Five years after the first writing sessions, a decade after the band's inception, and with a ridiculous name shortened to Scream Shout, 'Threads' is finally here.

 The album is released on July 22nd 2013 on Scylla Records
