WOLVES LIKE US


RELEASES NEW SINGLE STAY COLD 

NEW ALBUM, BRITTLE BONES TO BE RELEASED OCTOBER 25 VIA PELAGIC RECORDS

Norway’s WOLVES LIKE US will unleash their fourth album, Brittle Bones, on October 25th via Pelagic Records.

 

The long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s Black Soul Choir, Brittle Bones -- demoed by Kvelertak’s Bjarte Lund Rolland and mixed by Kowloon Walled City’s Scott Evans -- displays a more refined and dynamic wolf pack. “There was less tension this time; we almost didn’t argue at all which is rare for us,” relays drummer Jonas Thire. “A lot has happened to us at a personal level. Positives, like we all have kids now. But dark shit, too. There’s been a divorce. [Vocalist/guitarist] Lars [Kristensen] has been really sick. He wrote the lyrics as a kind of diary to deal with issues like abuse, literally and figuratively.”

 

Lyrically, the thread that runs through Brittle Bones is the topic of honesty. “It’s about dealing with demons in a real way, facing them and giving them the middle finger so to speak,” notes Kristensen. “Brittle Bones is a juxtaposition of the calm and the raspy; comfort and disturbance; beauty and repulsion… for the essence of art can only be understood as equally disturbing the comfortable and comforting the disturbed.”

 

In advance of its release, today Heavy Blog Is Heavy is pleased to unveil first Brittle Bones single, “Stay Cold.” Issues the band of the track, “This song is about finding that last drop of hope in yourself. When you’re down and out, there’s blood on your hands and you think you’ve lost it all. There’s still a choice.”
