BIO

Admittedly, we don’t know much about the mysterious Three Man Cannon, other than the fact that the four piece includes members of Tigers Jaw, Idiot Kid and King God. Public appearances have been limited and the band’s previous releases – 2010′s Nelson and the 2008 debut LP The Sound. The Fury. – have won a dedicated, albeit small fan base. Regardless, these five new tracks will undoubtedly be where 3MC makes its mark, with a sweet, slightly off-kilter sound that has the ability to incite raucous singalongs and bouts of foot stomping in one instant, and soothe the masses with bittersweet melodies and atmospheric flourishes the next. Imagine a folkier Modest Mouse … or maybe a more punk Mountain Goats and you get the idea.

Portland, OR’s Lee Corey Oswald is a different beast than its East Coast brethren, finding warmth in the hooky, blown-out fuzz rock and reverb-drenched riffs of yesteryear. Recorded and produced completely in analog by Kind Of Like Spitting’s Ben Barnett, these six new tracks revel in punk rock’s reckless abandon and the skewed pop harmonics of ’90s indie rock. The band originally started as an acoustic folk duo between Lee Ellis and Corey Ciresi, but the group has taken on many different incarnations. Never was that more apparent than in 2011′s Moon Songs, a full-length split into two camps: the electric side and the acoustic side. Lee Corey Oswald has grown quite a bit since then, traveling the US and touring with the likes of The Menzingers and Luther. The result is a confident blend of songwriting prowess and youthful exuberance that’s downright infectious.

Beginning today, Wolves At Bay will embark on a two-week tour of the U.S., covering parts of the East Coast and Midwest.

Joining Wolves At Bay for various legs of the tour will be HisDayHasCome and The Hotel Year, as well as label mates Born Without Bones, whose debut LP Say Hello is available as a free / name-your-price download via Bandcamp.

Formerly known as Dear You, Wolves At Bay treads similar progressive punk waters as bands such as Small Brown Bike, Balance And Composure and Make Do And Mend. The quartet builds its songs on a unique foundation of raw enthusiasm and intensity tempered only by a tireless work ethic and thoughtful composition, and Only A Mirror impresses with driving rhythms, gruff-yet-tuneful melodies and dynamic songwriting chops. Produced by Nick Bellmore (Make Do and Mend, Hatebreed, Death Threat), this impressive debut teaming with hard-charging punk anthems, engaging instrumental passages and an overall sense of urgency and purpose.
