The Growlers "Try Hard Fool"

The Growlers have released their new single “Try Hard Fool,” the latest track off their forthcoming release Natural Affair.. The song, follows Previous singles “Foghorn Town” and “Natural Affair.” About “Try Hard Fool” “It’s an old term we used growing up,” says singer Brooks Nielsen. “Like, ‘That kid’s a try-hard.’ Trying too hard to be popular, trying to be successful. If I feel like I’m trying too hard at anything, I have to check myself. The lyrics are directed at me, keeping me in line, reminding me to take a break, but don’t quit.”

The Growlers are getting ready for their anticipated set at NYC’s SummerStage, Central Park on September 14 with support from indie legends The Lemonheads. This year the band hosts their annual Beach Goth event as a three night Halloween party at the Hollywood Palladium, featuring extended performances, surprises and special guests. Additional dates across Europe were just announced and are on sale now for Winter 2020.
