ATLANTA - May 4, 2016 - PRLog -- Releasing May 24th is BOO HISS, the rafter-rattling sophomore album by Atlanta rock revivalists The Howling Tongues.

Heavily influenced by classic garage rock bands like The Stooges, Big Star, Led Zeppelin, The Who, and The Kinks, The Howling Tongues, featuring Davey Rockett (vocals/guitar), Nick Magliochetti (lead guitar), Thomas Wainwright (keys), Brandon Witcher (bass), and drummer Tylor James, demoed 30 songs at their home studio before holing up at The Quarry in Kennesaw, GA, for eight days, to live-track and record the album.

The resulting decimation is soaked with reverberation amplification, kick drum detonations, fuzzy tone overload, over-driven organ, and raspy vocal incantations, making BOO HISS a can't miss pièce de résistance. Within the first 8 bars of lead track "Raw Power in a Red Dress," a brazen bastard stepchild of The Stooges "Raw Power" and The Hollies "Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)," one realizes that The Howling Tongues are a performance enhancing drug ready to sweep your worries under the rug. Bottoms up.

Co-produced with T.J. Elias (Blackberry Smoke, Walk The Moon, Third Day), and Michael Bragg, the 9-song album was mastered by Greg Calbi (Father John Misty, Alabama Shakes, Bon Iver) at Sterling Sound in NYC. Ryan Smith (AC/DC, Allman Bros, Aerosmith), also at Sterling, mastered the tracks for lacquer.

Whether on 150-gram vinyl, silver-spinning plastic orbs or via the ether of the internet, Hiss is sonic bliss. The Tongues inject a bluesy Southern flair on lead single "Vivian," channel melodic mid-tempo Foo Fighters on "Alone," effectuate the funky hip-swivel soul of Prince on "Greatest Lover Around," mash up the boogie-woogie bombast of The Who and Kings of Leon on "Crooked Eyes" and imbue the psychedelic elegy of Led Zeppelin "No Quarter" on the epic 7-minute "Belladonna." As its last eerie notes ring into the ecosphere, it becomes crystal clear, The Howling is near...rock'n'roll's Holy Ghost has re-appeared.

"If you're looking for a band to restore your faith in rock 'n roll, you've found it." Performer Magazine

"The band's style is reminiscent of Jet or the Black Keys with the power of Zeppelin." Rock On Philly

"Like Aerosmith and The Black Crowes-they've got the essentials: the riffs, the swagger, the live-wire energy." Daily Vault
