Wool on Wolves Announce 'Measures of Progress,' Schedule Canadian Tour with Great Bloomers
A press release emphasizes the quintet's democratic approach, noting that Wool on Wolves are "an ever-evolving collaboration of five songwriters, a band in which everyone works for the song." For their second album, they teamed up with producer Paul Arnusch (Faunts, the Whitsundays) and engineer Nik Kozub (Shout Out Out Out Out). The result is said to be a "shape-shifting album" that addresses "timeless themes of struggle, disillusionment, and maturation."
