Them Wolves reveal new track ‘You’re More…’

June 10, 2013 in News

Following the announcement of Them Wolves debut EP German for Duke, yesterday the Birmingham three-piece revealed they’ll be uploading a brand new track from the record for streaming each week until it’s release. The first track to be unveiled is the absolute belter ‘You’re More Like a Young Mary Bell’.

Spotted performing with the likes of F**ked Up, Trash Talk, Dope Body, Blacklisters & Bats before even officially releasing any music, and described as ‘Not just band, more a weapon of mass destruction’ by The Hearing Aid – expect relentlessly pummeling rhythms, caustic feedback-drenched guitar and alpha-male inadequacy.

“Further proof of their brain-frazzling credentials; a collection of songs so filthy-evil and filled to the brim with not-giving-a-fuck-ery, that it will kick your face clean off your skull then send you the bill to get it’s shoes repaired…a truly sterling record.” – Counteract Magazine

German for Duke is set for release on 24th June 2013 on limited edition screen-printed CD or digital download via It’s Just Noise & Distorted Tapes. Pre-order here.

THEM WOLVES PLAY SUNFLOWER LOUNGE BIRMINGHAM ON SAT 29TH JUNE 2013 WITH GOD DAMN & NEW ALASKA. TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE.

Over the five-tracks, the Birmingham miscreants unite in a shower of ugly, lurching riffage.

Spotted performing with the likes of F**ked Up, Trash Talk, Dope Body, Blacklisters & Bats before even officially releasing any music, and described as ‘Not just band, more a weapon of mass destruction’ by The Hearing Aid – expect relentlessly pummelling rhythms, caustic feedback-drenched guitar and alpha-male inadequacy.

Fair Ohs & Them Wolves to support Fucked Up

October 24, 2012 in News

Super stoked to announce the supports for Fucked Up will be Fair Ohs and Them Wolves!

Fair Ohs are a three piece from East London, chasing an endless summer by playing stolen African rhythms,half-inched Indian ragas or tea leafed Brazilian tropicalia through a hardcore punk filter.

Known for not wearing shoes to increase on-stage dancing, being habitual liars and enjoying the comfort of shorts, Fair Ohs started off with fast in the red 60′s garage punk tunes on a series of tape releases and splits with their brother/sister bands, before dropping the sun-bomb and kicking out some tropical punk jams on labels like Sex Is Disgusting, Tough Love, Suplex, Italian Beach Babes, Paradise Vendors Inc and Sleep All Day.

Them Wolves are a three-piece of Birmingham miscreants united in a shower of ugly, lurching riffage. Reference points include early 80s sludge and willfully abrasive noise rock (a la The Jesus Lizard & Pissed Jeans). Them Wolves have been spotted performing with the likes of Trash Talk, Blacklisters & Shapes – expect relentlessly pummeling rhythms, caustic feedback-drenched guitar and alpha-male inadequacy.

Fucked Up, Fair Ohs & Them Wolves play The Rainbow Birmingham on Thursday 15th November 2012. More info & tickets available here.
