"Propelled by singer Laura Palmer’s mix of ragey power and dulcet swagger, it’s a characterful musical hybrid crammed with energy and ‘50s-via-The Cramps allure."
Polly Glass, Classic Rock Magazine January, 2019
"Make no bones here , "Heel Grinder" will color you impressed and it's one of the best rock n roll albums to come down the pike in a long time. Highly recommended!
John Slam, from Slam Reviews
"This is the best new Rock ‘n Roll Record to come out in forever. Buy a copy of Screamin’ Rebel Angels “Heel Grinder” and get your ass rocked off.."
...Eddie McNamara Author, Toss Your Own Salad
"It’s an exceptional album and one that has already set the bar ridiculously high for other artists to knock it off as my album of 2019. "
- Lee Powell UK Rock n Roll magazine, February 2019
“Fronted by dynamic, flame haired, tattooed and glamorous Laura Palmer, the band evoke in each of the 13 tracks of the record the spirit of Little Richard, Elvis Presley and Patsy Cline. Lead single “Oh! My Soul” ... covers the legendary (Little) Richard Penniman, infusing it with it an additional level of barrelhouse, juke joint boogie-woogie.”
… Dave Cromwell, The Deli Mag Jan 2019
“Laura Rebel Angel might be the female Little Richard...we are loving loving loving the new album."
… Del Villareal, DJ Motorbilly Radio, January 2019
“Screamin’ Rebel Angels is unafraid to make a vintage sound its own, marrying old-school rock 'n’ roll with a modern twist.
…By Nicole Rosenthal, amNew York, January 2019

-Jammin' James Riley/ Rockabilly N Blues Radio Hour

The Year In Band Names 2018. Screamin’ Rebel Angels, Ever think a band was created for instagram?
… by Kyle Ryan, The AV Club January 2019
“With a stunningly mesmerizing voice and a marvelous musicianship that finds her equally at home slapping the strings of a double-bass as playing the life out of her Gretsch, Laura is the kind of front person who only comes along once in a blue moon and is able to sing as good as they play and as such steers the whole dynamic of the band.”
– Lee Powell UK Rock & Roll Magazine, December 2018
“Laura Palmer leads her band to Rockin’ Heaven, pausing only for a music history lesson.”
…by David West, Vintage Rock Magazine, Aug 2018
“Talk About Energy! Their music leans a bit in the psychobilly direction and they have a ferocious sound. Laura is truly a force to be reckoned with, lifting her bass high above her hear and singing originals and covers with abandon.”
… Kevin Smith, Blue Suede News, June 2018
Screamin’ Rebel Angels’ unrelenting and infectious brand of original Rock ‘n Roll and Rhythm and Ooze, gets louder, faster and harder with the release their sophomore LP Heel Grinder on Hey-Lo Records on January 24th, 2019.
Screamin’ Rebel Angels’ unrelenting and infectious original Rock ‘n Roll has kept the dance floors pulsing, and roofs rattling across stages, airwaves and turntables around the globe since 2011!
Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, this trio’s untamed live performances are high-octane adventures that invoke the primitive energy of 1950s Rock 'n Roll infused with the soul of early Rhythm & Blues, and invigorated with the raw power of garage punk.
Fronting the band is Laura Palmer, a versatile multi-instrumentalist well-respected in the world-wide rockin’ musical community. Equally adept at slapping out the rhythm on an upright bass or picking on a big ol’ Gretsch, Laura Palmer’s on stage presence and powerful vocals command your attention, and delivers an exhilarating performance that will leave you breathless. Lead Guitarist Brian Hack’s stratospheric leads make a sound all their own.
Paired with seasoned professionals and energetic upstarts, the on stage chemistry and skill of Screamin’ Rebel Angels stirs up the same rebellious spirit that first electrified fans at the genres inception, and brings it to a contemporary position for new generations to fall in love with the primal excitement and passion of Rock ‘n Roll.
