Screaming Females have been slowly building a fanbase for several years now. They've already got a devoted cult following and have recently been getting even more attention from a tour with Garbage and an album produced by Steve Albini.

Their defining feature is front woman Marissa Paternoster, whose screams and yells make up the band's vocals. She also plays the guitar and, unlike a lot of punks, knows how to wield an axe. Paternoster is a shred guitarist from hell.
