With a little over a month to go until the release of their anticipated fifth album, Attack of the Wolf King, HASTE THE DAY are unleashing the dogs on rabid fans with the release of the album’s second track, ‘Dog Like Vultures.’   Starting today, the track can be streamed on the band’s MySpace page at: www.myspace.com/hastetheday “‘Dog Like Vultures’ is crucial part of this record,” explains vocalist Stephen Keech. “It shows all elements of the record and sums up the new sound of HASTE THE DAY.  The record is a concept album about a herd of sheep being protected by lions from a pack of bloodthirsty wolves.  This song is where the Lions vow unyielding protection over the sheep.  Promising that “no fang will breach your fleece” and “their blood with flow like water.”  It has one of my favorite chorus’ on the record and we are proud to release it.”     Available in stores June 29th via longtime label Solid State Records, Attack of the Wolf King shows a band who are already amongst the metalcore elite reaching frenzied new heights for what, nine years into their existence, could be their career-defining album. Recorded in Richmond with veteran producer Andreas Magnusson (THE BLACK DHALIA MURDER, OH SLEEPER, etc), Attack Of The Wolf King marks the next chapter for HASTE THE DAY, whose impressive resume includes more than a quarter million albums sold and legions of fans worldwide.

The band has announced a summer headlining tour in support of Attack of the Wolf King from June 4 to July 2, and will follow that up with a stint on the Vans Warped Tour from July 20 to August 15th.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
