Rhode Island-based noise rock band Daughters don’t appear to ever slow down. They’ve just concluded a long stretch of shows in celebration and promotion of their latest release You Won’t Get What You Want, and have now announced another mammoth list of gigs. The shows will take place in October and very early November across mainland Europe, with a few dates in the UK peppered in.

Having seen the band perform recently in Bristol at The Exchange, I can confirm that the experience justifies the ticket price, and then some. The band’s cathartic, visceral, and unrelenting live performance sticks with you the same way their latest album does upon hearing it for the first time. It’s a mixture of songs throughout the band’s career, well-orchestrated and arranged to give the crowd just enough punishment, and subsequent rest, without completely laying them to waste, so as to not distract them from the suffering on stage. Daughters don’t need jump scares, pounding strobes or fireworks to put the fear of god into you; they use reality to do it.

Also, if that’s your thing, I recently interviewed guitarist Nick Sadler about injecting reality into the music, the band’s not-so-overnight success, and the new record.
