Today HM is proud to premiere the new EP from To Speak of Wolves, New Bones. The release is the first new music from the Greensboro, NC band in four years; the album comes out this Friday, Sept. 16. (Preorders are available now from Cardigan Records.) We spoke with guitarist Andrew Gaultier about the new release:

“Writing New Bones was a refreshing step for all of us. We all come from various musical backgrounds and (we all have) recent projects outside of heavy music. There were no guidelines or formulas; we just wrote what felt right. It all came together so easily. Maybe it was because we spent a few years apart, or maybe because we missed playing heavy music together. I think the EP captures exactly what we were going for. This is our best work to date.”

The band will also be on a short run with Oh, Sleeper for the upcoming week in support of the new EP.
