Adelaide's loudest announce their comeback single(s) and Splendour sideshows.

More Wolf & Cub More Wolf & Cub

Wolf & Cub have been quiet of late. Like, really quiet. But not for much longer. The Adelaide group, who launched themselves onto the Australian music scene back in 2004 with their awesome self-titled EP, which featured  Thousand Cuts, a track that went on to get remix treatment by Paul Epworth in what is one of the producer's defining moments. But the last we've heard from them is via their second album Science And Sorcery in 2009.

But then they were announced on the Splendour In The Grass bill, and we got excited. And then we got an amusing mailout this morning from the band itself, which featured the following from Joel Byrne:

"I'll be the first to admit that we aren't the most prolific band going around. I mean, we're looking at 9 or so years together with only two albums and a couple of eps to show for it. What can I say? Making albums is tough. This year though, it seems like we're getting our shit together."

By getting their shit together he means that they've announced a double A-side, Shut Me Out/Got Nothin Comin, which you can hear below and download here.
