The Growl is a band from Fremantle, Western Australia, formed by Tame Impala bass guitarist Cam Avery.


Cameron Avery formed the band as another band of his had broken up.[1] The band is known for having two drummers.[2] Their first EP was mixed by Brian Lucey, who had worked on The Black Keys' album Brothers.[3]

In 2012 and 2013, the band went on an international tour supporting Tame Impala.[4][5]

After touring the USA and Canada with Tame Impala, The Growl returned to the shores of their homeland, Australia, in April 2013 to mark the release of their debut LP What Would Christ Do?? with a national headline tour. The group has earned multiple WAMI nominations, a Triple J unearthed slot at last year's Big Day Out and a spot on the NME Australian Acts To Watch list in 2013.
