WOLVES AT THE GATE premiere ‘Safeguards’


Third track previewed from upcoming full-length Captors

Available in stores and online July 3rd on Solid State Records


June 20, 2012 Days after the premiere of their breathtaking new video for “Dead Man,” Ohio rockers
WOLVES AT THE GATE are pushing forward with yet another new track – “Safeguards” – from their debut full-length, Captors, out July 3rd on Solid State Records.

With “Safeguards,” the band continues carving out a niche that is likely to eventually spring a waterfall of imitators – a refreshing take on a well trodded genre that has caused Solid State to dub WOLVES AT THE GATE (alongside label mates THE OVERSEER) as one half of “The New Breed” – the front runners in a new generation of post-metalcore heavy music.

The track premieres hot on the heels of their recently released video for ‘Dead Man’ – a visually captivating tale of redemption told through a son’s post-mortem discovery of his father’s buried past.

The follow-up to their touted 2011 EP We Are the Ones, Captors finds the band not only living up to but surpassing the huge potential recognized by critics and fans alike. No longer constrained by the limits of an EP, the members of WOLVES AT THE GATE were able to showcase the explosive growth of their songwriting, from luscious, melodic rock tracks to lip-splitting hardcore stomps.
Produced by Andreas Magnussen (OH, SLEEPER, HASTE THE DAY, etc), Captors is a blisteringly heavy full-length debut with the potential to appeal to every variety of rocker from fans of metalcore to traditional metal to mainstream hard rock. It’s an album that  like those of some of the band’s influences (AS CITIES BURN, THRICE, FOO FIGHTERS, UNDER0ATH)  avoids pigeonholes and easy labels. With the November 2011 release of We Are The Ones, the band wedged their way into a crowded heavy music scene. Now, with Captors, the band is kicking down the door and taking no prisoners.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

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."
