June 22, 2011 – Los Angeles, CA – Oslo, Norway’s fiercest new rock band WOLVES LIKE US will release their debut album, Late Love, in North America on September 13 via Prosthetic Records. In anticipation of the release, the Nordic gods of rock have unleashed a powerful new video for their crushing first single “Deathless” here: http://youtu.be/HnzeIGYj2WM; and unveiled an additional track, “We Speak In Tongues,” here: http://prostheticrecords.com/wolves-like-us/.
WOLVES LIKE US are without a doubt one of the most exciting bands of the moment at the forefront of the burgeoning Oslo music scene. Although barely a year old they have already established themselves on the live circuit with a showcase at last year’s legendary OYA Festival and recent touring with Kvelertak, Gallows, Purified In Blood and Blood Command. Extensive domestic radio play followed off the back of a stunning demo and debut 7” vinyl.
With ex-members from such notable Norwegian acts as Amulet, Infidels Forever, JR Ewing and Silver, WOLVES LIKE US are no strangers to dedicated hard work. Drawing influence from artists such as Planes Mistaken For Stars, Hot Snakes / Drive Like Jehu, Hot Water Music and the Afghan Whigs, the mission is clear: Wolves Like Us are here to make the urgent, powerful new music that they love.
WOLVES LIKE US signed with Prosthetic Records at the start of 2011 and immediately began recording ‘Late Love’ in Oslo with Ruben Willem (Haust / Caliban Studios). Mastering was handled by studio maestro Dave Collins (Soundgarden, Jane’s Addiction) and acclaimed illustrator Justin Bartlett (Sunn 0))), Kvelertak) beautifully crafted the artwork and layout for the cd and vinyl release.
Wolves Like Us will be touring throughout Europe for most of 2011, with reformed San Diego hardcore legends, Swing Kids, in July and with Kvelertak and Trap Them in Nov/Dec and are scheduled to perform at this year’s OYA Festival and the Hove Festival (Foo Fighters, Strokes) in Norway. It’s only a matter of time before Wolves Like Us sink their teeth into North America. Stay tuned!
