June 29th, 2010 – TO SPEAK OF WOLVES burst into the national metal consciousness with the May release of their brutally brilliant debut full-length, Myself < Letting Go, on Solid State Records.

Now, armed with an internet buzz and an album that’s received praise from AOL/NOISECREEP, ALTERNATIVE PRESS, DECOY MUSIC and moreTO SPEAK OF WOLVES are ready to take it to the fans and the unconverted this summer with live dates alongside BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE and previously announced dates supporting UNDEROATH throughout August (dates below).

Mixed by metal mastermind Jason Suecof (ALL THAT REMAINS, AUGUST BURNS RED, TRIVIUM), Myself < Letting Go is the debut full-length from the North Carolina five-piece. The band has crafted an album that careens wildly between brutally bombastic riffage and soaring, arena-worthy choruses. On the impressive debut, vocalist Rick Jacob’s voice both hammers and haunts, vaulting seamlessly from sky-high melodies to visceral screams.

Praise For Myself < Letting Go
A crashing force of melody and hardcore… There has been a heavy buzz about To Speak of Wolves.” –AOL NOISECREEP

“Passion and execution make To Speak Of Wolves stand out… I’m almost hesitant to even mention potential with these guys, as this debut is so strong.” –DECOY MUSIC

“[To Speak of Wolves] have all the tricks down… Expertly produced by the master of high-tech headbanging, Jason Suecof.” –ALTERNATIVE PRESS

“Myself < Letting Go is a fantastic record… Everything about this record, from the guitars to the vocals, drums and bass, screams talent.” –THE NEW REVIEW

“This thick guitar driven album is sure to please metalcore fans… An extremely well produced debut album and another solid album from yet another excellent Solid State act.” –INDIE VISION MUSIC

“A mix of aggressive elements with meandering melody and an uncompromising expression of beliefs… A commendable release.” –UNDER THE GUN
“Refreshing … makes you want to stand there, close your eyes, reach your hands for the skies and allow whatever emotion is building up inside you to erupt.” –RICHLAND CHRONICLE
“Fans of the genre will find plenty to enjoy… [To Speak of Wolves] could plausibly create their own sizable shadow” -ROCKFREAKS

“With the ground-trembling vocals of Rick Jacobs, coupled with guitar riffs that make you want to air-drum your days’ aggression away, this quintet is going places!” -HOPECORE

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
