5 Things You Didn't Know About The Growlers

5 Things You Didn't Know About The Growlers

Beach Goth Festival 3 happened in 2014 featuring a lineup of DIIV, The Drums, Cherry Glazerr, Joyce Manor, Mariachi El Bronx, Bleached and many more. 

Our house and studio burned down last year.

A dipshit friend threw a firework into our space and lit our studio on fire, just being a drunk, which we do all the time, but that one just happened to… He didn't notice and it lit our merchandise on fire and it lit the whole studio on fire, which got out of control really quick. 

Every record we've had problems right before we made it. Last record we got evicted from our warehouse, so we had to put everything in storage, make the record, and then leave on tour, and the same thing happened this time, our house just burned down so whatever's left I've got to put in storage, then we're going to make this record and cruise over to Australia and forget about it.
