The Howling Tongues are a 5-piece rock-n-roll outfit from Atlanta, Ga. After years of incessant rehearsals and touring, they have developed a large and growing fan base around the country. The Tongues are quickly 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 moving faster than they had anticipated. With the additions of Zach Smith on bass and Thomas Wainwright on keys, they were ready to create a style of rock and roll that would make the legends of the 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. They recorded a six-song album of what they call a “no regret rock-n-roll” style of music.
The band was later introduced to one of the industry’s top producer/engineers, Tom Tapley. Tapley had worked with some of rock’s greatest acts, and the Tongues were excited to have such a giant of the industry working with them. In late December of 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 brought them 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,” said guitarist Nick Magliochetti. “However, none of us expected to be this blown away by the end result.”
The band was so impressed that they decided to partner with Lynch and Chapin 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,” said frontman Taylor Harlow. “But looking back, I can't imagine doing it any other way.”
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.
In November of 2013 The Tongues had to part ways with former bass player Zach Smith. The Howling Tongues asked long-time friend, Brandon Witcher, to begin rehearsing for tour and writing the new album with them.
