Out Come The Wolves

Courtesy of our friends at Brooklyn Vegan, awesome news about some upcoming Wolves In The Throne Room releases, in including a NEW ALBUM March 31st!

"Wolves In The Throne Room have emerged from the dark forests of the Pacific Northwest to announce a pair of new releases and drop more details on their previously announced upcoming live LP, Live At Roadburn 08! First up, the Malevolent Grain EP will hit Southern Lord with a 180-gram LP bang, with Conspiracy Records dropping a small pressing of picture discs for the record (a limited batch of CDs will be available on tour). Then on March 31st, the band will drop Black Cascade their new full-length on Southern Lord! Both Malevolent Grain and Black Cascade were recorded by Randall Dunn/Mell Dettmer and are the first to feature new guitarist (former touring member) Will Lindsay of ex-Middian / Age Eternal fame. In addition, WITTR's Live at Roadburn 08 will be released with a companion DVD available with the first pressing of 500 copies, with 150 coming in gold vinyl with a silkscreen. Full WITTR tour dates are below, including their date at Scion Rock Fest."

Such good news. Looks like March is going to be an insane month with new albums from WITTR, Kylesa and Mastodon all dropping then. Can't fucking wait.

If you've never seen these guys live, I urge you to do whatever you have to do to make it happen. They fucking destory. Drummer Aaron Weaver will blow your mind.

Here's a cool flick of their candlelit set from when they played Reggie's in Chicago with Nachtmystium and Velnias in the fall. Great show, well worth the trip.
