Wolves of Winter had a recent live show performance on March 31st, supporting the mighty Truckfighters for their Mesa, AZ tour date. During this set, which by all accounts went fantastically, they were able gather some live footage to create a brand new video for their track ‘A New Reality‘.
Wolves of Winter, if you haven’t yet heard this heavy desert rock trio, came together in 2012, and hail from Phoenix, Arizona. Comprised of Josh McGee (Vocals, Guitar ), Mike Horn (Drums), and David Weaver (Bass), they are a bastion of fuzz-laden, doomed down and dirty, heavy grunge rock.
Their most recent recording is the self-titled ‘Wolves Of Winter‘, which was released in early 2016. I won’t do a formal review of that album at this time, but suffice to say it was in my top five favorite album releases for 2016!
During their gig with Truckfighters a couple of weeks ago, the trio had the talents of Kevin O’Donnell in directing some premium live video footage. Kevin compiled the footage and created this brand new Official Video for the track ‘A New Reality‘, from the Wolves Of Winter release.
The new video is streaming via YouTube below.
A vinyl format of the title was announced last year and is still open for pre-orders via No Slip Records. After a delay with the artwork, the vinyl pressing is expected for release sometime in the near future. This amazing cover art was created by Carrie Olaje, with Joey Rudell of Ghosttown Graphic Art.
Wolves Of Winter also have a few show dates coming up around their Arizona desert home. Once you finish watching their new Official Video for ‘A New Reality’, check the dates and have a listen to their self-titled album on Bandcamp!
