The Scream is the debut studio album by English post-punk band Siouxsie and the Banshees. Recorded in one week and mixed in three during August 1978, it was released on 13 November 1978 by record label Polydor.
Before the album's release, the band had developed a strong reputation as a live act, and had achieved a Top 10 UK single with "Hong Kong Garden" (which did not appear on the original album); upon release The Scream became an almost instant critical and commercial success, peaking at number 12 in the UK Albums Chart, and placing the group among the pioneers of post-punk. The album is now regarded as a landmark of post-punk.
