Wolfborne: ‘In The Beginning’

wolfb1WOLFBORNE IN THE BEGINNING… DEBUT ALBUM – RELEASED 22.09.14 / UK TOUR

‘In The Beginning…’ is the debut album from Wolfborne. Starting out as an ambitious project to create a record that would redefine Rock music for the current generation, plans were put in place with the aid of renowned Canadian producer GGGarth Richardson. Pre-production began with the Vancouver based guitarist Lanning Kann (of Dodging Daylight), songwriter Ken Goode (Stand Down) and engineer Nick Rowe (formerly of New York based metal act Bloodsimple), and together they wrote a number of songs that were then sifted through to create a solid and powerful body of work. The recording sessions themselves took place at The Farm Studios in Vancouver with vocalist Chris Witoski (SPLITtract) and drummer Issah Contractor added to the line-up. Richardson and engineer Ben Kaplan worked tirelessly with the guys to create a monumental sounding record that was then sent to Josh Wilbur for mixing and Brock McFarlane for mastering.

With so many uniquely talented people involved, the album took on a sound that separated itself from everything else and Inspiration was taken from so many genres that the songs have been compared to artists such as Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails and David Bowie. However, although the album takes many twists and turns, it is all centred around an intense drum and bass groove. From the fast-paced punk stylings of ‘Livin’ The Life’ to the hard and sexy ‘Funky Town’ via the infectious and anthemic ‘Sex Sells’ (the first single), this is a record with something for everyone.

wolfb3A touring line-up of Wolfborne has subsequently been solidified around Witoski and Kann, together with drummer Rob Sheldrick (of It’s Criminal) and bassist Brett Nussbaum (Inside It Failed). Together they have created an energetic live show that will slay UK crowds on their debut tour in October when they hit the road with SOiL, American Head Charge and (hed) p.e. for the following shows:
