Wolves In The Throne Room - Release New EP Next Month


In February Southern Lord will proudly release the vinyl only version of the new Wolves In The Throne Room EP entitled "Malevolent Grain" [cover art], featuring two brand new tracks from the Pacific Northwest organic black metallers. Conspiracy Records will offer a limited edition picture disc of the 12″ for Europe, while Southern Lord will release a black 180-gram version worldwide. Additionally the band will press a limited CD version for tour purposes only. The EP features the band's newly designed logo crafted by renowned artist Christophe Szpajdel, designer of black metal band logos for Kult Ov Azazel, Emperor, Moonspell and other international acts.

The third WITTR full-length "Black Cascade" will follow, to be released on March 31st on Southern Lord Records. More info will follow soon on this wholly organic black-drone masterwork. Both the EP and the full-length were recorded to 2-inch tape by Randall Dunn and Mell Dettmer in Seattle this Winter. The new recordings are the first to feature their new guitar player Will Lindsay (Middian) who had previously served as the band's touring bass player, in addition to longtime members, brothers Nathan and Aaron Weaver.

The band will tour Europe beginning in late January, along with three select US dates. More extensive touring through 2009 is also imminent. In addition to the new EP, other new merch for this tour includes a Live At Roadburn 2008 12″ record, which also includes a DVD and is being released by Burning World Records.

Yeah, I do have to admit that it looks really great somehow. I might just check this out. They aren't the best stuff these days, but its still something that could be worthwhile.

Well, since I don't have a vinyl player, I guess I'll have to go and see them to buy the CD version.

This will be a very good release, I think. I'm also looking forward to their new LP. And they seem to be touring a lot more actively (Graspop this coming summer!), so they'll hopefully be fairly tight in London at the end of the month. Powerful band.

Does anyone know if they've started using bassists since Two Hunters?

Yes, they have a bassist now.
Last year February when I saw them they didn't have one yet but two months later at Roadburn they already had a bassist with them on stage.
