A Wilhelm Scream performs Sept. 7 at the Railyard. Creatively named after a stock sound effect, A Wilhelm Scream has been hailed as new heirs of the skate-punk scene.
The Massachusetts band has been playing punk and melodic hardcore for more than a decade and recently came off a tour with Pennywise and Strike Anywhere. After a hiatus in 2008 the band hopped from Nitro Records to Paper + Plastic for a fifth release, a self-titled EP.
Openers include Missoula’s Strangle Valentino and Denver’s The Photo Atlas, who return to Billings for the first time since August 2009. The dance punk band return for two concerts, the first opening for A Wilhelm Scream and the second on Sept. 10 to perform with 1090 Club and Flowers From Her.
