On April 3rd, the Screaming Females will release their fifth studio album, Ugly. The first single is the raw, upbeat "It All Means Nothing," and it will be released on Saturday, February 11th at the Don Giovanni Records Showcase in Brooklyn.

Though "It All Means Nothing" is not out yet, the Screaming Females have been playing it live for a while, and the song has quickly become a fan favorite. "As we played 'It All Means Nothing' live over the last year or so, people would regularly come up to us and say, 'That song has to be the first single from your next record,'" drummer Jarret Doughtery says. "We've never had anything like that happen. It was coming from friends, strangers and other bands. It made the choice for the first single easy."

The physical single of "It All Means Nothing" will be available at the Screaming Females' upcoming record store tour dates, but it is exclusively streaming on RollingStone.com. The rest of the tour dates are below:

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
