"THE CRAMPS FROM THE CRYPT MEET UP WITH THE RAMONES AND TAKE ALL THE COCAINE HASIL ADKINS LEFT ON THE FLOOR"
Austin, Texas based duo The Ghost Wolves met in 2011 backstage at a local music festival and have been an inseparable force ever since. To Carley (guitar, vocals) and Jonny (drums, keys, vocals), Rock N' Roll is an intangible spirit, an expression of creative freedom more than a binding genre. Their sound is a blend of punk rock, delta blues, garage, pop, noise, electro and death-western, their live show having been described by one fervent supporter as "The Cramps meeting up with The Ramones and taking all the cocaine Hasil Adkins left on the floor."
The band tours and records new music constantly. Since 2011, they have played nearly 1000 shows in 15 countries around the world. In 2014 they traveled to Tokyo, Japan at the invitation of cult Japanese fashion line Hysteric Glamour, where they performed for a sold out crowd at the brand's 30th anniversary celebration. In 2016, platinum selling Finish goth-rockers The 69 Eyes brought them to Europe to be the opener on their "Universal Monsters" tour, exposing the young Texans to their largest audiences to date. The band has also had much success in the film and TV licensing world - their music being featured in movies and shows by Netflix, HBO, MTV, Showtime, and Alamo Drafthouse, among others. Recently, Carley was invited by Noel Wells (Masters of None, SNL) to be a supporting actor in her new feature length movie "Bury The Cat."
A one string guitar and minimalist drums lay the foundation of their second full length album, TEXA$ PLATINUM. Produced by Mike McCarthy (Trail Of Dead, Spoon) in Austin, Texas, this sophomore release captures the duo rapidly expanding their horizons and exploring the depths of their dynamic range. The record is both explosive and mysterious, the band shifting gears effortlessly between bombastic guitar riffs, scratchy acoustic cuts and slow-burning muddy grooves, a genre bending experience entirely their own. The 14 track LP will be available on German label Hound Gawd! records in late 2016.
