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.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
