Wolves At The Gate's "Captors" In Stores and Online July 3rd!
Wolves At The Gate's debut full-length "Captors" will be available in stores and online July 3rd!
The follow-up to the band's touted 2011 EP "We Are the Ones," the album finds the band living up to and by all accounts surpassing the huge potential recognized by critics and fans alike. No longer constrained by the limits of an EP, the members of Wolves At The Gate were able to showcase the explosive growth of their songwriting, from luscious, melodic rock tracks to lip-splitting hardcore stomps.
"While we love 'We Are The Ones' we were really excited to branch out further into our creativity and diversify our songwriting," explains guitarist/vocalist Steve Cobucci. "On "Captors," listeners will definitely hear a more mature side of WATG with a clearer vision of how we approach our songwriting."
Produced by Andreas Magnussen (Oh, Sleeper, Haste The Day), "Captors" is a blisteringly heavy full-length debut with the potential to appeal to every variety of rocker – from fans of metalcore to traditional metal to mainstream hard rock. It's an album that – like those of some of the band's influences (As Cities Burn, Thrice, Foo Fighters, Underoath) – avoids pigeonholes and easy labels.
