BAND TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM EULOGIES ON MARCH 11 VIA SOLID STATE
WOLVES AT THE GATE have announced their fifth album Eulogies. It arrives on March 11 via Solid State Records. Pre-order Eulogieshere.
Today, the band has shared the video for the new track “Lights & Fire.”
Watch the video for the dynamic track, which boasts anthemic choruses and a cinematic and quiet mid-section that builds to an epic crescendo, here.
“While all of these songs were quite personal for me, this one held a different weight, as it related to a number of the most painful parts of my life. It showed me how I was holding onto things that were actually destructive to me,” shares vocalist/guitarist Steve Cobucci. “It was the first time that I truly felt alone. I had to end a relationship that I put a lot of hope in. Soon afterward, I got robbed. My laptop, recording gear, guitars, amps — all gone. I didn’t have the money to replace things. Soon after, I tore my ACL and meniscus, which was a blow to my aspirations to play soccer for a living. All these things combined left me feeling abandoned and asking, ‘What did I do to deserve this? Why me?'”
But the only way out is through and he learned from the experience. Cobucci finishes, “What was revealed was an old truth I had known but didn’t realize how I fell prey to it. ‘Where treasure is, there will your heart be also.'”
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).
Wolves At The Gate blaze a path combining seemingly disparate elements into a singular, cohesive identity. They harness ambition akin to Bring Me The Horizon, a progressive creative evolution in the spirit of Thrice, with postmodern rock accessibility rivaling Wage War or While She Sleeps.
Eulogies showcases the emotive force familiar to fans in attendance at WATG tours with bands like The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Fit For A King, August Burns Red, Born Of Osiris, Emery, and Red; and at major rock festivals headlined by a-list acts like Fall Out Boy, Switchfoot, and Skillet.
