By Alex HudsonFolk-leaning Edmonton rock band Wool on Wolves issued their debut full-length, Grey Matter, back in 2010. Now, the group are ready to drop the follow-up with Measures of Progress, due out November 13.
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."
Check the punchy single "Midnight Avenue" at the bottom of the page, along with a minute-long trailer.
