TO SPEAK OF WOLVES unveil video for ‘Je Suis Fini’

New album Find Your Worth, Come Home out May 22 on Solid State Records

Spring U.S. headlining tour underway

North Carolina hard rock outfit TO SPEAK OF WOLVES continue to charge towards the May 22 release of their ferocious sophomore album, Find Your Worth, Come Home. Last week the band premiered the album’s blistering leadoff track with heavy music tastemaker Revolver. This week the band is excited to take fans deeper into the album with the debut of the first half of a two-part story that begins with the video for standout track “Je Suis Fini.”


Overtop a soundtrack of darkly melodic rock set off by the frenetic vocals of new frontman Gage Speas, the video for “Je Suis Fini” is a modern take on Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, in which a patient realizes that what she perceives as reality is far from the truth, and that she must escape her surroundings at any and all costs.

Watch the video for ‘Je Suis Fini’ now:


“We chose to shoot a video for ‘Je Suis Fini’ because we feel it’s a track that represents the album really well,” explains drummer Phil Chamberlain. “We wanted to give people an honest preview of the record and how it sounds. Plus, it has a lot of energy and we really dig the chorus a lot. Due to scheduling, we ended up having to shoot two videos in one day. On top of that, we were all wearing winter clothes while shooting on a hot day, so we were drenched in sweat trying to get this done!”
Fans can get a chance to preview the band’s new sweat-inducing material on TO SPEAK OF WOLVES’ U.S. headlining tour. Presented by Evolve Over Hate clothing and Substream Music Press, the tour stretches through June 2 with support from HARP & LYRE. Joining the bands on select dates are Solid State label mates WOLVES AT THE GATE (May 8-14), as well as FALLSTAR (May 18-21), LIONS! TIGERS! BEARS! (May 22-26), and SET THE SUN (May 28-Jun 2).
Find Your Worth, Come Home sees the band’s revitalized lineup reaching into darker, heavier and faster territory. The sophomore album is follow-up to TO SPEAK OF WOLVES’ heralded 2010 debut, Myself < Letting Go, which catapulted the band onto the national stage with its road-rash riffage and soaring, arena-worthy choruses. Relentless touring alongside likeminded bands such as UNDER0ATH, AUGUST BURNS RED and BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME underscored the fact that the Greensboro, NC quintet were a force to be reckoned with. The band quickly became a beacon within the hard rock and metalcore scene, despite – or perhaps because of – their unwillingness to become yet another facsimile spewing forth endless breakdowns and Auto-Tuned choruses. TO SPEAK OF WOLVES refused to do either, and fans loved them all the more for it. While fans will continue love those same aspects of the band’s musical personality, Find Your Worth is an album of rediscovery, one that freshly stamps what TO SPEAK OF WOLVES is about, from its title on down.


Now, driven by the dominating vocal presence of Speas, TO SPEAK OF WOLVES are ready to blow the doors wide open. “This record is something that we’re incredibly proud of,” Chamberlain says. “We couldn’t be more stoked and proud of what we’ve created with this album. We are excited and can’t wait to share it with everyone!”
