ALPHA WOLF – reimagine fan favourites on lo-fi compilation EP ‘Shh’

22nd March 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

Melbourne-based metalcore powerhouse ALPHA WOLF offer listeners a mellow counterpart to a collection of thrashing originals on their forthcoming lo-fi compilation EP, Shh, out Friday, March 31 via Greyscale Records/Sharptone Records. The band shares 60cm of Steel in the lead-up, stream herePre-orders live now.

Created in collaboration with MIK, ALPHA WOLF slow things down on the five-track EP, re-imagining fan favorites ’60cm of Steel,’ ‘Spirit Breaker,’ ‘Golden Fate Gut Ache,’ ‘Don’t Ask’ and ‘Bleed 4 You’ as down-tempo, beat-heavy chill tunes. Doused in twinkling soundscapes and atmospheric ambiance, ALPHA WOLF unveils a new dimension to their punishing legacy that sets out to appeal to the unsuspecting.

“We think lo-fi as a genre is a great break away from our usual heavy tunes and it’s something we can show our family at Christmas without getting odd looks,” tells the band.

In contrast to the mosh-lord’s latest lo-fi offering, ALPHA WOLF will indulge in their bread and butter this weekend playing Australia’s inaugural Knotfest alongside huge names from the likes of Slipknot, Parkway Drive, Megadeth, and more. The sold-out festival will travel through Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane beginning this Friday, March 24. In addition, this week the band also announces their place as Tasmania’s headline act on UNIFY Off The Record in June. Tickets are on sale now.

Over the last few years, metalcore juggernauts ALPHA WOLF have proven they are a fierce force to be reckoned with. 2020 saw the release of their sophomore album a quiet place to die, which was the culmination of every lesson learned, every hit is taken, and every loss felt; and it lead the band to a #6 charting spot on the ARIA charts and nomination for Best Heavy Album at the ARIA awards.

a quiet place to die is the end result of five individuals who have faced the fire and refuse to flinch, pouring their everything into making something they are truly proud of. Through all the chaos these last few years have been able to throw at the band, they’ve still managed to play multiple headlining runs of sold-out shows, secured places on some of the biggest festivals in Australia, and have their sights set on conquering the international scene. ALPHA WOLF has shown that nothing this world can throw at them is going to stop them from tearing apart the metalcore scene.

Shh will be available Friday, March 31 via Greyscale Records and Sharptone Records. Pre-orders are live now.
