PUKE WOLF – new EP out
Puke Wolf releases Interstice,an emotional exhuming of events unfolded over the last years
Puke Wolf plays emotional post-hardcore using their music to vent frustrations and aversions for our modern, heartless society. Hopefully the audience can and will partake too. They are a part of it whether it is on a stage or a record. It is indeed meant to be a cathartic experience. The trio doesn’t have a front figure since all three members contribute with vocals that range from roaring and angry to piercing and lamenting. The music can oftentimes seem chaotic and uncontrollable, but in the midst of the storm there will always be a melodic or rhythmic anchor to keep the listener grounded. Melancholy will always be at the center – wear your heart on your sleeve – it’s okay if it hurts.
June 15 the band has released their second EP, Interstice, which means “a short space of time between events”. The EP is the bands’ reflection of things and events that have unfolded over the recent years, both on a global and very personal scale. The result is five tracks that span over almost 27 minutes.
The lyrics cover everything from heart ache to global social injustice. The unrelenting vocals from the three band members range from brutal to shrill, while they all express anger, frustration and disappointment. The instrumental side mainly focus on the post-hardcore genre, but the band also incorporates field recordings and even ambient compositions to create a cohesive and emphatic experience.
Interstice is released as a collaboration between the band and four labels.Puke Wolf have released one single, Hubris, while the next, Full of Heart, will be out June 3. Interstice was record by Jens Moss (Mossy Productions), mixed by Tobias Munk Tønder (Angry Music Studios), mastered by Will Killingsworth (Dead Air Studios).
Puke Wolf have previously played with bands such as LLNN, HIRAKI, Demersal, Halshug among others.
