TO SPEAK OF WOLVES find early success at radio

#37 on Loud Rock Select Chart

Debut Album Myself < Letting Go released to critical acclaim

May 27th, 2010 – The buzz-inducing debut from Greensboro, NC’s TO SPEAK OF WOLVES – Myself < Letting Go – dropped May 18th and hasn’t wasted time creating a stir at radio. The album debuted at #37 on CMJ’s Loud Rock Select Chart, and the track “Dimming The Lights” bowed at #33 on Loud Rock Select Tracks – impressive numbers for a debut.
Myself < Letting Go has already garnered critical praise from outlets such as AOL/NOISECREEP, ALTERNATIVE PRESS, DECOY MUSIC and more.
Mixed by metal mastermind Jason Suecof (ALL THAT REMAINS, AUGUST BURNS RED, TRIVIUM), Myself < Letting Go is the debut full-length from Greensboro, NC’s TO SPEAK OF WOLVES. 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.
