Wolves Like Us are without a doubt one of the most exciting bands of the moment at the forefront of the burgeoning Oslo music scene. Although barely two years old, the outfit has already established themselves on the live circuit with a showcase at last year’s legendary ya Festival and recent touring with Kvelertak, Gallows, Purified In Blood and Blood Command. Extensive domestic radio play followed off the back of a stunning demo and debut 7” vinyl.

With ex-members from such notable Norwegian acts as Amulet, Infidels Forever, JR Ewing and Silver, Wolves Like Us are no strangers to dedicated hard work. Drawing influence from artists such as Planes Mistaken For Stars, Hot Snakes / Drive Like Jehu, Hot Water Music and the Afghan Whigs, the mission is clear: Wolves Like Us are here to make the urgent, powerful new music that they love.

Wolves Like Us signed with Prosthetic Records at the start of 2011 and immediately began recording ‘Late Love’ in Oslo with Ruben Willem (Haust / Caliban Studios). Mastering was handled by studio maestro Dave Collins (Soundgarden, Jane’s Addiction) and acclaimed illustrator Justin Bartlett (Sunn 0))), Kvelertak, Anti-Sweden Jeans) beautifully crafted the artwork and layout for the cd and vinyl release.

Review excerpts:

“Hammer discovered Wolves Like Us via Gallows bassist Stu Gili Ross and we immediately fell in love. But think rather reined-in Kvelertak via Kyuss via Cult Of Luna: a massive slab of Nordic hard rock with as much heart as head. ("Late Love" review - Rating: 8/10)”

— Gill, Metal Hammer UK

“This could be the beginning of something very special ("Late Love" review - Rating 4/5)”

— Dan Slessor, Kerrang

“Late Love is an incredible, confident debut. Wolves Like Us are a band you need to show some love. (Late Love review - Rating 5/6)”

— Ian Chaddock, Big Cheese Magazine
