Wolfbrigade have been storming the scene internationally in one form or another since 1995. Then formed as Wolfpack, the outfit unleashed three LP's and as many EPs of their potent crust-inspired punk in less than five years, instantly making a massively influential impact worldwide and helping fuel an entire new wave of "d-beat" bands and scenes internationally. With some personnel changes at the turn of the century the band kicked off the new millennium under the revamped moniker Wolfbrigade. Since then the band's already powerful attack became even more sinister and morose, yet more aggressive and pummeling. Following four LP's and several splits and mini-releases under the Wolfbrigade banner since 2001, the outfit have remained at the top of their game and continue to release invigorating and demoralizing socially-aimed antagonism on a regular basis.


The band's newest LP, and first for Southern Lord -- simply and aptly entitled "Damned" -- will hit the streets in North America early next year. A top-notch surge of Wolfbrigade's primal and hateful attack, "Damned" levels all in listening range with its 12 devastating anthems in under 35 minutes. Recorded at renowned Gothenburg-based Studio Fredman by Frederik Nordstrom (At The Gates, Amon Amarth, Opeth) the record showcases the band arguably at their finest hour.
