Another one of our Ones To Watch 2018, Crimewolf, have shared a track online. The Amber Valley band has shared Wall ahead of the release of their debut album next month.
Independent label Head of Crom Records are set to release the self-titled long player, recorded at Dubrek by Jay Dean, next month as a joint release with Kunst Gallery Belper. It’ll be available on limited edition black vinyl and has cover artwork by Phil Burgess aka D.Filis.
Wall is the first track to be shared from the album and has been highly anticipated by many on the scene after a series of blistering gigs by the band who we’ve described as having, “squealing guitars and dishevelled rhythms Crimewolf are showing shambolic genius in math rock, no workings given but the right answer all the same.”
Writing about the band when they supported Biscuit Mouth at their album release show last January cover artist Phil Burgess wrote for us that, “the band’s loud, repetitive and raw guitar driven noise rock often reminds me of some of the great American post hardcore bands of the late ’80s. Bands such as Scratch Acid and Big Black. Occasionally, the band will just drop out into a full free jazz style wig-out just to keep you on your toes and remind you that at a Crimewolf show anything goes. On top of the music sits David Culleton’s perfectly formed ranted words, an embittered preacher reminiscent of a Birthday Party era Nick Cave.”
He wrote then he highly anticipated their full length record, as several of our other writes have echoed across the last 12 months, and Wall won’t dampen that excitement.
