Vanyaland spreads the good news about "Tooth & Nail" with lengthy interview with lead yowler Gray about some of the record's themes, what it means to be a platform for fuck ups, and how the broken world of today isn't so different from what it's always been. Check it.
As Tooth & Nail grows nigh, the great Bishop & Rook is back in action and is currently featuring an exclusive interview and preview of the new record. Check it out as you get read for Sunday's record release at O'Briens, with Today Junior and Atlantic Thrills.
World, meet Susie: She's the star of the official video for "From The Vault," the first single off of the upcoming record Tooth & Nail. As you can see, she's very pleased to meet you. Even better, you can warm up those pipes and sing along with all her bad advice. Check out Susie and all her hijinks.
Dang. Last night's sold out show with Nashville's All Them Witches and Irata at the Sinclair was a banger, and our head are still banging accordingly. Thank yous all for coming and whooping it up. If you missed it, here's a taste of a few choice licks:
Salem Wolves is one of the featured artist included on the first volume of the We Are Not Trump compilation album. The album is available now via Bandcamp, with all proceeds benefiting the American Civil Liberties Union. It's a cause near and dear to our hearts and a true honor to be included. As Vanyaland writes:
Shortly after Election Day, Somerville musician and multi-intrumentalist Christopher Brown (Vary Lumar, DESK, and the Difference Engine) put out a call for bands and artists from New England and beyond to help soundtrack an anti-Donald Trump compilation to benefit the American Civil Liberties Union.
Titled We Are Not Trump, or WANT, the comp was supposed to be released on Inauguration Day, January 20, as Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America.
But desperate times call for desperate measures, and WANT, which generated significant interest nationwide, is here several days early.
It's with great pleasure that we debut the first track - remixed version of "Shameless," as a tribute to the most shameless, hateful freak we know - off "Tooth & Nail" to support the ACLU Nationwide. Give it a listen and buy the record for whatever price you want.
Never stop kicking against the pricks and raging against the dying of the light.
As we gear up to send 2016 straight to hell (where it belongs), the Boston Herald helps ease the hurt: We got two shouts in the December 9th edition from man about town Jed Gottleib, first in the Boston Music Awards 2016 coverage and second all by it's lonesome. Here's the juicy bits:
Since forming in 2014, Salem Wolves have notched impressive local successes. Last December, Converse Rubber Tracks studio invited the band to record singles “Peach” and “Shameless.” In the spring, the group became a semifinalist at the Rock & Roll Rumble and played the Boston Calling Block Party. This fall, they got a nod for new artist of the year at the Boston Music Awards.
2017 is fast coming, and we have big plans. In the meantime, we're at Great Scott tonight with Cask Mouse, Diablogato and Nick the Barbarian. See ya at the show.
Oooh, my head. Last night at the Verb Hotel/Hojoko for the Viber Boston Music Awards Nomination Party was ballistic. We were too busy being loud and rowdy (see also: drunk) to capture the entire shindig for posterity. Luckily, we have some of the best fans in the land, so we've put together a repost roundup. Check out our Facebook or the Instagram below.
See you at the awards Thursday.
