Biography

Exclusive bump on [Adult Swim] programing block Feb. 27-March 7, 2006!

Charted number 11 on CMJ's top 20 college radio adds for the week July 20th, 2004, and landed at 179. Climbed to number 79 on CMJ's top 200 after 3 weeks with a self-released EP and remained on the radar of the charts for more than 10 weeks.

"Mixing vintage garage rock with punkish roots and elements of psychedelica into a heady brew of their own creation, the Screens are perhaps the best unsigned band in America right now. This is the kind of no-frills rock & roll that Bomp! Records founder Greg Shaw practically invented (or at least nurtured), the Screens delivering a potent musical elixir to chase away those corporate-rock blues." MONDOGORDO.COM - ALT CULTURE GUIDE, JAN.05

“…they’re like being run over by a train carrying The Kinks, Jet and The Hives. They’re loud, they’re fast, and they possess a lot of power.” RIFT MAGAZINE DECEMBER, 2004

“I can't tell you how special it is to have a 3-song EP from a first time, self-released band this high [on the CMJ charts]. It says something about how good the music is.” JERRY STELLER, VITRIOL RADIO PROMOTION

"The Screens [are] the first 'unsigned' band in years [i] really [have] any belief in." MIHKEL RAUD, BEATWIRE.COM
