The Howling Tongues are a 5-piece rock-n-roll outfit from Atlanta, Ga. Since the start of the band, with an already large and growing fan base, The Howling Tongues are becoming a household name in today’s music industry.
In August of 2011, guitarist Nick Magliochetti, lead vocalist Taylor Harlow, and drummer Tylor James decided to start a band that would soon be growing and moving faster than they had anticipated. Bassist, Zach Smith and keyboardist, Thomas Wainwright were asked to join shortly there after to create a style of rock and roll that would make the legends of this industry proud.
With a growing reputation for their live show and an anticipation of more music from their fans, The Howling Tongues returned to the studio nearly a year after the release of their first demo to record a six song album of what they call a “no regret rock-n-roll” style of music.
The band was introduced to one of the industry’s top producer/engineers, Tom Tapley, who has worked with and recorded some of rock’s greatest acts. On December 29th 2011, The Howling Tongues started work on their next project titled, “Keep The Dust Down.” This resulted in the building of a growing brand and one step closer to a sound that the band could call their own.
After a year of live shows and gathering momentum in the music scene, The Howling Tongues found themselves in the hands of producers Stan Lynch and Billy Chapin. "We instantly knew that something great would come from working with Stan and Billy. However, none of us expected to be this blown away by the end result”, said guitarist Nick Magliochetti. So the band decided to partner with them for the recording of their first full-length album.
In May of 2013, the band headed to Nashville's Sound Emporium recording studio to begin work on the new album. "We didn’t know what to expect being in a new environment, working with Stan and Billy, and recording it all to tape without any computers. But looking back, I can't imagine doing it any other way", said frontman Taylor Harlow. The end result is an album that shows the band's true colors and sends jolts of life back into the rock-n-roll music scene. With the highly anticipated release just around the corner, ripples have turned to waves as The Howling Tongues bring you the album that you'll be listening to for years to come.
