Cougar Den is three kids from the heart of the Midwest, Milwaukee, Wisconsin playing spazzy hardcore/screamo. We formed with the aspiration of playing basement shows with our favorite local bands. Since November of 2005, we've toured the west coast in a little blue school bus, gotten a few stitches, watched kids jump off of a refrigerators at house shows, seen the walls of legion halls sweat and made tons of friends. In the fall of 2006 we self-released our debut self-titled EP which was recorded by Shane Hochstetler of Call Me Lightning. Fusing spazzy guitar-lines with the expressive nature of late 90s screamo, our sound is ever-evolving. Our live show is replete with group sing-a-longs, hi-fives and general rowdiness. Come along for the ride; it’ll leave you humming, tapping, pumping your fist in the air.
