New Band to Watch Out For: We’re Wolves

Do you know about the band called We’re Wolves? Considering the fact that they haven’t yet released a full-length album, you may not even know that they exist. If you don’t, then you’re missing out on something that is quite special indeed. In fact, they have one of the more unique sounds to come along in some time, something that is reminiscent of groups like Disturbed and Drowning Pool.

Who Are They?

The band is composed of vocalist AJ Diaferio, guitarists Jeremy Matthew and Tony Cardillo, bassist Andrew Salazar, and drummer Jesse Secatello. They have released more than their fair share of covers, but up until now, there hasn’t been a great deal of talk about releasing a full-length album. As a result, most people who only listen to music in the traditional manner (on the radio) have never even heard of them. For individuals who get their music from various internet-based services, it’s possible that they might have run across them once or twice. However, it’s just as possible that the band might have been completely overlooked.

On The Cusp Of A New Album

As it turns out, the band is indeed on the cusp of a new album, one that will likely premiere in October. For now, they have released a video of a brand new cover that they’ve done, this time of Unholy Confessions, a song that was originally performed by Avenged Sevenfold. The band members are hoping that by releasing the video, they are quenching the thirst of some of their more dedicated fans who have been waiting for a full-length album for some time. To put things in perspective, it’s important to remember that the band hasn’t exactly been around for a long time, performing only recently. However, that doesn’t change the fact that individuals who have developed a taste for their music have been waiting for them to drop this full length album since day one, something that the Florida-based band has also been anxious to see happen. That said, the band was always keen on making sure that things were done properly when they did finally release a full-length album. The last thing they wanted to do was rush things.

Pain And Humor Coincide

One of the things that makes this band unique is that everything they do is designed to create a rather unique blend of absolute horror end side-splitting comedy. In fact, they have routinely covered songs that deal with some of the worst atrocities that humans can commit against each other, somehow making the worst aspects of human nature seem almost comical. Their performances are something that any theater company would be envious of. Every live performance and video that they do is performed in full costume, including makeup. Audiences don’t see the performers’ actual faces. They even go as far as acting out portions of their songs while singing, driving home the point that severe pain and great humor often go hand-in-hand. It sounds horrifying at first, but when you really stop and think about it, it’s almost as if they are trying to make a point.

They want you to think about their performance long after it has ended, but perhaps it is true that they also want you to think about some of the more important aspects of the human psyche. More specifically, why do people commit atrocities toward each other and toward themselves? That’s what the majority of their songs are about when you tear everything else away. In fact, their very first performance involved a song by Limp Bizkit called Break Stuff. From that point forward, they have largely gravitated toward this type of music that tells a very dark side of the human story. It’s sort of like combining the worst elements of humanity with the dark humor that is necessary in order to get through those moments in hopes of finding something better.

Their Path To Success

It would seem that they’ve taken the route that many other popular musical acts have taken as of late. As opposed to trying to secure a traditional record deal, they filmed many of their performances and put them on social media platforms such as YouTube and Tik-Tok. Eventually, a number of their songs ended up on Spotify. It didn’t take long for them to find an audience. While they may not enjoy the popularity of some of the more mainstream music groups, they do have a very dedicated group of followers that practically hang on every release that they provide. It is largely because of these individuals that they have finally decided to do a full-length album, something that their fans have been encouraging almost since they saw the band in their very first performance.

A Firm Release Date

There is no doubt that the full-length album is coming, with a firm release date of October 21st of this year. Fortunately, the fans that have been waiting for so long won’t have to wait much longer. As far as the material that is included on the album is concerned, the band is largely keeping that a secret. Aside from commenting that the most recent music videos, including Unholy Confessions and Wasteland, will be included on the album, they haven’t said much else. Fans are interested to see what other covers they will include on the album. Of course, they are also curious as to whether or not any original music will be included. For now, the fans will just have to wait and see what happens when the album drops on October 21st. The one thing that is certain is that the band has put themselves in a good position to experience continued success. They seem to have the right mix of fan-following coupled with a bit of mystery in order to keep things interesting. As long as they live up to their past performances where this new album is concerned, there is no reason to believe that they won’t continue to add to their fan base for years to come.
