Wolf & Cub's new album Science And Sorcery featuring Seven Sevens and One To The Other is now in stores and online so its time for the band to hit the road with their most extensive headline tour of Australia yet.
It’s more than two years since Wolf & Cub broke cover with their debut album Vessels. Those two years seemed to take on a momentum of their own. The album was released around the globe and the band found themselves playing in Japan, Europe, the UK and the USA and touring Australia with TV On The Radio, The Killers, Queens of the Stone Age, Wolfmother and Primal Scream.
At some point the brakes had to be applied, battered road cases stored away and thoughts focused on future sounds. Given the restlessness at the core of Wolf & Cub’s creativity there was never any chance things would be done the same way a second time. New influences, new gear, new ideas necessitate a new approach.
Produced by Chris Colonna (Bumblebeez) Science and Sorcery was recorded in Colonna’s studio in his hometown of Braidwood in the Southern tablelands of NSW. At what seemed like an unlikely fit at first with Chris’ hip hop cut & paste production style, there was some concern that this collaboration could go tragically wrong which would result in the band emerging as a 80’s derived synth pop outfit.
What scared the band now inspired them, taking them right out of comfort zones and creatively giving them the challenge they had been yearning for.
With brisbane originals The Scare in support this is surely set to be a tour filled with its share of debauchery and sweet music, duuuuude. Tickets are also REALLY cheap so don't miss out!
