Today, Wolf Jaw is proud to premiere their new single, “I Lose My Mind,” with HM Magazine. The band (formerly known as The Bad Flowers) started out in 2014 – a self-described “thunderous rock and roll band” – in the Black Country of England, a region located near Wolverhamption and so named for the coal mining history of the area.

The song comes from the band’s upcoming sophomore album, to be released this year alongside an uptick in touring and festival appearances. We spoke to guitarist and vocalist Tom Leighton about the track:

“’I Lose My Mind’ is our first single after the recent band name change. We wanted to come out with something that shows our intention for our next record. It’s harder, dirtier, and with more fuzz! There have been so many ups and downs since we released the last record, and this song is a reflection of that. You have so much happening, sometimes you feel like you’re losing your mind.”

The band recently announced they’ll be performing at Download Festival in the UK this June.

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."
