“An obvious theme through these covers is the unique nature of each one of these artists, and Incubus is no exception,” says vocalist/guitarist Steve Cobucci about the latest cover drop. “We all have memories of when we first heard the band and how inspiring their creativity is. Personally, I remember buying their Live at Red Rocks DVD that I watched more times than I can count. I just remember thinking about how incredible Brandon’s singing was for an hour-and-a-half long set. I also couldn’t believe how Mike was creating such incredible and huge sounds as the only guitar player.”
He continues, “It’s difficult to explain what Incubus sounds like because they are so unique. It’s always a bold move as an artist to create something so distinct and original, but an incredible payoff when you have talented musicians like the guys in Incubus. Mike Einziger’s guitar playing is just as incredible as Brandon Boyd’s singing. Their artistry on the song made it both challenging and exciting to run with. Tracking this song was fun because we all got to do things musically that we haven’t explored much with our own music. The intricate vocals on the verse, the chop and stop drum beat, and powerful chorus were elements that we enjoyed recreating and interpreting.”
Unrestricted by genre conventions and determined to raise the bar with each successive album, Wolves at the Gate deliver music and a message with a firm commitment to passion and authenticity. Tirelessly seeking out the light in seemingly overwhelming darkness, the Midwestern post-hardcore group balances soaring melodies with unrelenting metal and emotional heaviness. Eulogies arrives with confidence and forward motion born from reflection, introspection, and isolation.
The small-town Ohio-based five-piece band built the foundations for the album’s 13 songs during the pandemic shutdown, shaping diverse tracks like “Shadows,” “Peace That Starts The War,” and “No Tomorrow” into stunning confessional epics. Wolves at the Gate’s audience treasures each of the band’s best-known songs for the emotional depth, passionate catharsis, and evocative power contained in them, as evidenced by the millions of streams for WATG anthems. These include “Counterfeit,” “A Voice in the Violence,” and “Drifter” (from 2019’s Eclipse); “Asleep,” “Flickering Flame,” and “War in the Time of Peace” (from 2016’s Types & Shadows); “Relief,” and “The Bird and the Snake” (from 2014’s VxV); “Dead Man,” “The Harvest,” and “Slaves” (from 2012’s Captors), and “Heralds” (from 2011’s We Are The Ones).
