Sound Bites: Chromatics, Screaming Females and OFF!

Chromatics' Kill for Love
After a slight mastering delay, Portland Italo-pop quartet Chromatics have finally released their five-years-in-the-making double LP Kill for Love. You've already heard a slew of standouts in the album's excellent title track, a cover of Neil Young's "Into the Black" and the sensual "Candy." Now you can can stream the entire album below courtesy of band member Johnny Jewel, and if AS must say, it was every bit worth the wait.

Screaming Females' "Expire"
Next Tuesday, New Jersey indie punk trio Screaming Females release their new LP Ugly via Don Giovanni Records. Following the fantastic recommended listen "It All Means Nothing," Stereogum premiered another cut in the equally wailing rocker "Expire." The band will also be embarking on a very lengthy U.S. tour that hits California 9 times but leaves much of the east coast out of luck this run around.

OFF!'s "King Kong Brigade"
OFF!, the Los Angeles hardcore supergroup led by original Black Flag / Circle Jerks frontman Keith Morris, is charging up their upcoming self-titled debut (due out May 8th on Vice) with a first listen in the 90-second scraper "King Kong Brigade." In support of the new LP, the quartet has awesomely been announced as openers for Refused's upcoming stateside reunion tour. You can find dates and pre-sale tickets here.
