Wishing Wolf Talks of New Single and Debut Album!

Energetic alternative pop punk emo group WISHING WOLF will release their debut album "Violent Fire". Releasing a single off it titled "Closer" with much more music to follow soon. For now though, the band talks of these releases and what the future holds.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Most of us met in college initially, however the band all got together through a Facebook post made by Danny. I (Kyle) didn't know anyone and was tagged by my close friend, this friend was Charley, Moodie's girlfriend.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The origin of the name came from Danny's old band, they had an EP called "A Wolf With a Wish", and the name stuck with him from there.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based in Kettering Northamptonshire. The scene as a whole is definitely on the up, when we started going out there was maybe a gig every month at best. Now there's something every night of the weekend. Pop punk in particular is relatively popular at the minute, which keeps us very busy. I'd definitely recommend a band called Thrift Street from Northampton we've worked very close with them and they're all lovely dudes.

4. How would you describe your style?

We find it hard to categorize our style, I think we'd say were an Emo/Alternative rock band. However we take a lot influences from prog rock, metal and pop punk.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far we have released our first EP "True Eyes", as well as this we released a single for our song "As Long As You're Here Tonight" both of these can be found on Spotify and apple music. At the moment we are currently in the middle of releasing singles from our new album "Violet Fire". Single 1 "Closer", can be found on YouTube and soundcloud. "Violet Fire" will be released 29th of may on all platforms.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We have loads coming up for the release of the album, were all very much looking forward these shows. We've decided to make them the biggest we've done yet ramping up our performances massively. On June 1st we'll be playing our album release show in our home town at The Prince Of Wales with our buds in Get Your Head Straight. Following this were playing the 8th supporting Slackrr.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

I think we just want to keep doing what were doing, so far we've made so many friends on our travels and wed like to take that to the next level with potentially a tour. I think musically we want to do our best to experiment with lots of different sounds. Were all inspired by something different and when we put our heads together who knows what the results will be. Album 2 could be metal or it could be jazz only time will tell!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Our stuff is available absolutely everywhere! Spotify, Apple Music, Souncloud. Our music videos are all on our YouTube channel, however if you'd like to support just a little more we have our merch at;


10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We would like people to remember the good old days of emo, we want to remind people of the sounds of the 2000's. Bands like My Chemical Romance, Panic! At The Disco and Taking Back Sunday all have a special place in our hearts and we feel it's about time we all embraced it. We also want people notice the spin we've put on a well loved genre.
