Reveal the video for Heavenward,

 

Ahead of a run of intimate instore album launch shows, WOLF ALICE have revealed the video for new song HEAVENWARD. The track is the latest to be lifted from their forthcoming eagerly anticipated second album VISIONS OF A LIFE, released by Dirty Hit on 29 September on digital, CD and limited edition white vinyl formats.

 

HEAVENWARD is the stunning opening track from the album and its video is a fly-on-the-wall view of life on the road with the band, pieced together using live and home video footage shot on their sold-out USA tour earlier this year, the first time the band took the songs from VISIONS OF A LIFE out on the road.

BEAUTIFULLY UNCONVENTIONAL

WOLF ALICE have revealed BEAUTIFULLY UNCONVENTIONAL, the latest single from their eagerly anticipated second album VISIONS OF A LIFE. The infectious and boldly grooved track shows yet another musical side to WOLF ALICE, whilst lyrically following in the footsteps of early career highlight BROS as an ode to young female friendship. The track further cements their reputation as one of the biggest breakthrough independent bands of recent years.

 

“I wrote it about one of my friends,” says singer and guitarist ELLIE ROWSELL. “My feelings towards her reminded me of the film Heathers, where everyone is a Heather and you find your other non-Heather … a ‘You can be my partner in crime’ kind of thing.”

 

The track arrives as the band play their first UK shows of 2017

VISIONS OF A LIFE LP

Dirty Hit Records – 29 September 2017

 

WOLF ALICE, one of the biggest breakthrough bands of recent years, make their eagerly anticipated return, announcing their new album, VISIONS OF A LIFE, and a run of shows worldwide including a UK and European tour in the autumn. The album will be released by Dirty Hit on 29 September.

 

A first taste of the new record, YUK FOO, was premiered as Annie Mac’s HOTTEST RECORD IN THE WORLD on BBC Radio 1 and is available to stream and download now. Annie Mac previously played the WOLF ALICE song, GIANT PEACH – from the Gold-certified debut MY LOVE IS COOL album – as the first track on her first broadcast when she took over the reigns of the prestigious BBC Radio 1 Evening Show in March 2015 and she has now repeated the feat for her return to the station.

 

As comebacks go, a gauntlet is hurled by the exhilarating rage rush of YUK FOO, briskly laying waste to all it meets in a little over two minutes. “You bore me, you bore me to death,” screams singer and guitarist ELLIE ROWSELL, “Well, deplore me. No, I don’t give a shit”. 

Who the ‘you’ in question is up to us. “We wanted to make it open to interpretation, so that anyone who was frustrated at something or someone could have it as their anthem,” explains Ellie. She herself was inspired by, “Being sick and fed up of certain expectations; for me a lot of it is about being a young woman. Even the everyday wolf-whistle thing. As I get older, I feel like ‘Why have I always put up with that?’ When I sing that kind of song, it’s everything that I want to do when stuff like that happens”.

 

WOLF ALICE are ELLIE ROWSELL [vocals and guitar] JOFF ODDIE [guitar and vocals] THEO ELLIS [bass] and JOEL AMEY [drums and vocals]. The band’s debut album, MY LOVE IS COOL, hit #2 in the UK Charts in June 2015 and #12 on the Billboard Chart in the USA. The band were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize; an Ivor Novello Award; a Brit Award for Breakthrough Act and a Grammy for Best Rock Performance; and took an NME Award for Best Live Band. They criss-crossed the UK, USA, Australia, Japan and Europe on the mother of all two-year tours. Last year Ellie and Theo set up the Bands for Refugees movement, after the horrors of Europe’s migrant crisis; the lack of compassion shown in so many quarters shocking them into action.

 

When WOLF ALICE finally came off the road, instead of floundering or foundering, they channelled their restless energy into a forward motion. Regrouping in London, they spent intense weeks in the rehearsal room, working out their experiences in a wealth of new material. With the bones of VISION OF A LIFE in place, they headed to Los Angeles to turn the songs into an album with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen [Paramore, Tegan and Sara, Beck, Nine Inch Nails] with Tom Elmhirst [David Bowie, Arcade Fire] mixing.

 

VISIONS OF A LIFE is fundamentally a personal album, and one of great growth for the band. From the opening HEAVENWARD – a cloudburst of shoegazey guitar and vaulting vocals – through to the epic eight-minute closing title track, it’s an album packed with surprises for those who think they know what WOLF ALICE is.
