Howling is the ninth studio album released by The Saints. The album was their first release after an eight-year recording hiatus. This time Chris Bailey chose to lose the big production of the 1980s records to make an album that was more akin to the early Saints punk sound. However, instead of teaming up with the original members Bailey again employed a new line-up for the band, making this The Saints Mark III. The album was released to mixed reviews in mid 1996 in Australia and in 1997 everywhere else in the world.
