Stockholm-based WOLFBRIGADE has released the lead single from their impending ninth LP, Run With The Hunted, which is set for release through Southern Lord in late April. The album’s merciless second track, “Warsaw Speedwolf,” comes crushing forth through a new label compilation set up to benefit the ACLU. Southern Lord will release Run With The Hunted on LP, CD, and digital formats on April 28th; preorders and additional audio from the album will be issued in the days ahead.
Recorded in both Studio Fredman in Gothenburg (At the Gates, In Flames, Martyrdöd), by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd, and in Sunlight Studio (Dismember, Entombed, Grave) in Stockholm, by Tomas Skogsberg, WOLFBRIGADE‘s Run With The Hunted surges with ten brutalizing new tracks which elevate both the harsh intensity and the melodic attributes of the band’s patented, penetrating, d-beat-ridden hardcore crust punk to new extremes of infectious viciousness. A concentrated sense of urgency lines the entire record, while a fragmented sense of dystopia fuels the scathing vocal wrath.
Formed in 1995, initially as Wolfpack, after five years the band ventured into the new millennium as WOLFBRIGADE. Having released an impressive load of LPs and smaller releases through both entities, and has toured widely across Europe, the US, and more over the years, making the band one of the most premier acts of the genre. Their damning music surges with outcries against human socio-political injustices, screaming for transformation and freedom through their brutalizing brew of Lycanthro Punk.
WOLFBRIGADE will tour in support of the new album, with a solid list of festival performances across Europe confirmed for the Spring and Summer months, including Huset Harcdore Fest, Superbowl Of Hardcore, SMSF Fest, Obscene Extreme, DIY Fest, Wacken Open Air, and more, with additional tour dates to be announced in the weeks ahead.
