Wolves&wolves&wolves&wolves (also known as WolvesX4 or WX4) is an indie punk rock band from Winston Salem, NC, that combine the soul and ferocity of punk rock with the brash intensity of rock n’ roll. They've seen their fair share of member changes over the years, but the current lineup is -founding members/brothers Brian(lead vocals and guitar) and Kyle(drums); Ryan(lead guitar and vocals) who joined after filling in on the band's 2014 southeast tour; and Jake(bass and vocals) a longtime friend that stepped in after Wolves parted ways with their original bassist late last year.
Since 2013, Wolves has released a full length album, two seven inches, and been featured on countless compilations in the U.S. and Europe. In January 2013 they self released the full length "Subtle Serpents" which would later see release in Europe through Gunner Records in March of 2015. June 2014 saw the release of "Scorched Earth" a 4‐song EP on vinyl through their own label XV/XIII, and on cassette through Flesh and Bone Records. In August 2015, in collaboration with Wiretap Records, they released "Scars" another 4‐song EP on vinyl. 2016 will see multiple releases from the band, first a split EP cassette tape with NC friends Almost People, and then their sophomore album. "The Cross and The Switchblade" will be available in the Fall, in the U.S. through Wiretap-XV/XIII Records and in Europe through Gunner Records.
Wolves has played all over the southeast and mid-Atlantic seaboard of the United States over the years and in April/May of 2016 they embarked on a full tour of the U.S. In conjunction with the European release of "Subtle Serpents" they flew to Germany for a month long tour in 2015, and will be returning in September of 2016 to support the release of "The Cross and The Switchblade".
Over the years the band has had the opportunity to share the stage with or open for acts like; Tim Vantol, Cymbals Eat Guitars, The Misfits, The Ataris, Guttermouth, The Attack, The Swellers, Government Issue, Arliss Nancy, Veara, Bad Luck, Sheer Terror, Far Less, He Is Legend, Maylene and The Sons of Disaster, Artifex Pereo, On My Honor, and many more.
Long before it was fashionable, somewhere in the red clay rolling hills of rural North Carolina where time stands still and mass media culture merely flies over, a young Jeff Clayton was stewing up a mash of crazed ideas inspired by late night horror flicks, Saturday morning wrestling and the scratchy old records of Alice Cooper and Black Oak Arkansas.
It was a potent and hazardous mix that, when given the blasting cap of punk rock, ignited one of the most infamous and iconic bands in rock & roll; ANTiSEEN.
Now, over thirty years later, Clayton still leads the charge - a bloodstained barnstorm of southern fried punk rock fury. Times and taste may change, but ANTiSEEN does not; diesel-fume, piss, and vinegar - and damn all the rest. What was once topical has long since become dated... But not ANTiSEEN.
The toxic DNA bleeds thru the muddy roots. The genre defying influence and heritage no longer can be denied. One needs not look very far to recognize it.
The spirit is eternal, the reality exceeds the myth...
The legends continues...
