Not naming what kind.
Anyways, after releasing two shitty dmeos, we've decided to release a REAL demo album. One where every instrument is clear. Every word is spoken clearly. A DEMO WITH DRUMS!!! Hell, yeah! A REAL demo.
Of course, we are still only adolescents with dreams, so going to a studio for a demo really isn't ideal. However, there's some nifty apps/programs out there that could solve that problem. Anyhow, we're recording a re-make of "Back in the Day". It is still technically untitled, but we guarantee this one to be WAY better. HOWEVER, we're refusing to release dates. All we can say is later this year. Also, the cover won't be done by us, but rather our friend who decided to do the "War Strained" cover, Thomas Grim.
Keep checking in regularly to get updates on the demo, as we WILL release news every week.
"I really couldn't tell anyone how many people actually check out this site, or our music. Thing is, we've onl got a single out, and we've played at three gigs, one of which only had myslef as the band memebr, the other guys were...well...you know. Anyways, this is going to change shortly. We've got a demo of a cover song coming out next month. It's "Trust" by Megadeth. It's my favorite Megadeth song, and it's so inspiring when you see them play it live.
"The song also fits my life, so seeing as it fits, and I want to payback 'Deth for the inspiration, I had to cover it somehow, and Matt wanted to do it. We'll have it out ASAP."
Friday was a successful night, putting W.O.L.F. back where we should be. The performance was talked about quite a bit at school, so we're happy. The remixing of "Paranoid" is almost done, so it'll sound great on the single release.
Speaking of "single release," we've finished literally every part of "War Strained"...excluding the lead guitar...probably the most anticipated part of the song. Along with the release, we'll have multiple new store items, begin allowing people to pre-order our EP, and start asking around for gigs. Got one for us? Let us know so we can update you on how long it'll take to prep.
Tyler's back in, so we're back to last month's line-up. Still no bass player. Taylor's been asked several times if Tommy Sheppard would be the new member, but his reply was, "Tommy is a great friend, and his personality-his spirit-is perfect for us. What keeps us from allowing him in is that he JUST started bass...two days before the talent show. That's not enough experience to play stuff, like "Dark Matter." Tommy just needs more time. Another thing is that he's more into punk, which is not W.O.L.F. I can see him in a punk band twenty years from now, but not something our style."
While W.O.L.F. is still short a member, we haven't slowed. In fact, we've advanced quite a bit, even with the failings of our first demo CD AND demo album.You'll be seeing us live soon enough!!!
As you all know, we were doing a documentary of us making our demo, "Back in the Day". It's really just the core duo (Matt and Taylor) in a bunch of videos. The two also narrate the whole thing, discussing lyrics, riffs, why we did things certain ways, etc. It's about an hour long. It will be released next week, possibly followed by W.O.L.F.'s single, which is CURRENTLY titled "War Strain".
"War Strain" is all about how war is just a bunch of politicians who squabble and decide to blow the hell out of eachother. The drums are quick (badass job, Tyler), so Matt and Taylor had to make sure to keep up. "I like how the intro starts. It's got piano, so it's kind of a wierd sound. The piano...it's...well, fast-paced. It adds that special something that adds up to make the song modern, while we worked on keeping the other instruments not too modern," Taylor points out, "The song isn't something we've ever written before. All five of the songs on 'Back in the Day' were different. They had that old school ring. Our EP, we're recording, sounds more of something you'd expect if Testament combined with Megadeth. Naw, 'War Strain' will be our first recording ever, and it stands by itself. No albums. No EPs. Modern, but not too modern. It's by itself, and it'll stand strong."
W.O.L.F. is also working hard on the EP. We're praying we can have it out by mid-April, but as you all know, shit happens. We may not have it out until mid-May. That doesn't mean we're not going for April. We still are. Spring Break is next week, so we hope to record a demo of the EP. Here's what YOU need to do:
Taylor: "We need to get out there. We need material to play at gigs. That's what we're doing. Writing. No rules. But we'd like to follow along the professional style. It seems people who pre-order always get something extra. Me and Matt were thinking. Maybe a demo of a new song? I don't know."
PLEASE COMMENT BELOW IF YOU THINK WE SHOULD ALLOW PEOPLE TO PRE-ORDER THE EP, AND IF WE SHOULD INCLUDE SOMETHING EXTRA FOR THOSE WHO PRE-ORDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
