Out October 7 via Animal Style Records is Wolves At Bay’s latest EP, When I’m Dead, and you can stream the release in its entirety in the replies. The band lists Thursday as an influence, and I think that’s a fair comparison — they also take cues from the gruff vocal stylings of acts like Hot Water Music and Polar Bear Club, and generally walk the familiar ground of fiery, loud, intense music written by angry, angsty young people. It’s a cool EP, and you can preorder it digitally here and on cassette here.

There was a time when I owned newfoundglory2.com and updated it with news about the band because I didn't think their official site had enough information or media on it.
