Idiot Pilot Digital
An album with strong roots in alternative rock and ambient sound, Wolves also blends electronic elements with Anderson and Harris' post-hardcore influences. Produced by Ross Robinson (At The Drive-In, Glassjaw) and co-produced by Mark Hoppus (bassist for +44, Blink-182), the album takes the duo's sound to cinematic levels in both scope and vision. "I definitely feel like Wolves is a huge progression for us," Harris says, "Music is what we live for". Wolves represents many firsts for the duo. As opposed to their locally produced debut, Strange We Should Meet Here -- which was recorded on pirated software in Anderson's bedroom when the two were still in their teens, and later re-released on Reprise in 2005 -- Wolves looks to outside sources for production and collaboration (Ross Robinson, and Mark Hoppus).
In addition, Wolves - with its soaring symphonic opener "Last Chance" and anthemic rockers "In Record Shape" and "Red Museum" - marks the first time both Harris and Anderson were completely collaborative musically, still playing a majority of the instruments between just the two of them. Live drums were featured courtesy of Blink-182/Transplants/+44 drummer Travis Barker on "Elephant" and the Dillinger Escape Plan's Chris Pennie on the remaining tracks.
The band just released the video for their first single "Retina and The Sky," which premiered September 4th on ascap-doesnt-want-labels-to-promote-their-artists-go-with-bmi-next-time.com and is currently posted on the You Tube's WBR Channel http://youtube.com/user/warnerbrosrecords, as well as on the band's website. The single is also included on the soundtrack to the live-action robot fantasy film Transformers, which was released earlier this summer.
