Introducing Thunderbitch: Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard's New Side Project

"Thunderbitch. Rock 'n' roll. The end."

That's what the bio for Thunderbitch, the new side project from Alabama Shakes' formidable lead singer Brittany Howard, reads. Based on that alone, you can count me in.

Yesterday, Howard and members of Clear Plastic Masks and Fly Golden Eagle surprise dropped their new album as Thunderbitch, a rowdy Brit-meets-Surf rock group that has little of the softening Shakes' recent Sound and Color had. As evidenced by the big, rattling riffs and tracks named "I Just Wanna Rock 'n' Roll" and "Wild Child," Howard needed a platform to rip and holler without any of the glitter, and Thunderbitch is that.

You can purchase the album on iTunes, or stream it in full on the Thunderbitch website.
