Strawberry Girls To Make National Television Debut

Band will be featured on NBC’s ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’
     Tragic Hero Records instrumental rock trio, Strawberry Girls, is on the rise and ready to take things to the national spotlight. The band will be featured on NBC’s “Last Call With Carson Daly” this Wednesday November 16 (technically Thursday November 17 @ 1:30am).
     The band is grateful for the opportunity, especially being such fans of the show. Guitarist Zachary Garren explains, “I grew up watching Last Call With Carson Daly, I’ve seen the show evolve over the years and found out about awesome bands through the show, so it’s a dream come true to actually be on it. Some of my favorite bands have been featured recently, so it’s even crazier to be featured amongst bands that inspire me.”
     In addition to this exciting news about the broadcast, Strawberry Girls also released the lead single, ‘Vanilla Rainforest”, off their upcoming record ‘Italian Ghosts’ (out 2/17/17). The album is available for pre-order now exclusively at Merchbucket.
About Strawberry Girls
When an eclectic group of individuals comes together with an idea to create something fresh, the results can often be outstanding. Such is the case with the experimental rock trio Strawberry Girls. These guys from California were founded by ex-Dance Gavin Dance guitarist Zachary Garren after he crossed paths with drummer Ben Rossett and bassist Ian Jennings. Although the band has worked with guest vocalists, they have remained an instrumental three piece. The album French Ghetto includes vocal appearances by Kurt Travis (A Lot Like Birds, ex Dance Gavin Dance), Nic Newsham (Gatsby’s American Dream), Shane Smit, Kathleen Mae, and Gavin Mulkey. “Our sound was originally built from a desire to practice and play as much as possible, without being restricted by the schedules of many different band members,” says Garren. However, what originally began as an invention out of necessity, became much more than that. Strawberry Girls take a simplistic, yet sometimes technical approach to songwriting by mending parts together that get stuck in your head and compel you to listen to them over and over again.
    Strawberry Girls have gone back into the studio to record their new album “American Graffiti” and are excited for fans to hear the new songs. “We can’t wait for everyone to hear American Graffiti, an album we’ve been writing for over two years. We put a ton of work into making this our best album so far, not just musically, but sonically, too. It’s a bit different than our previous releases and we explore a lot more musical territory with this album. We care about every single note we chose to play on American Graffiti and know it shows.” Garren explained.

“American Graffiti” was released on November 13, 2015 and hit #22 on the Billboard New Artist Chart. The band has been consistently playing shows since the release including the 10 year anniversary Dance Gavin Dance run and the sold out Chon tour. In late 2016, Strawberry Girls headed back into the studio to re record “Italian Ghosts”.
