Sweden’s Wolfbrigade just released the lead single from their forthcoming ninth LP, Run With The Hunted, set for to hit streets via Southern Lord in April. The new song “Warsaw Speedwolf,” is also available immediately via a new Southern Lord compilation set up to benefit the ACLU.
Stream Wolfbrigade‘s “Warsaw Speedwolf” below:
Southern Lord‘s ACLU comp features Power Trip, Darkest Hour, Okkultokrati, Sleep, Black Breath, Crypt Rot, and more.
Run With The Hunted was recorded in both Studio Fredman in Gothenburg (At the Gates, Martyrdöd) by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd, and in Sunlight Studio (Dismember, Entombed, Grave) in Stockholm, by Tomas Skogsberg. Run With The Hunted brings the band’s patented, penetrating, d-beat-ridden hardcore crust punk to new extremes of infectious viciousness. A concentrated sense of urgency lines the entire record, while a fragmented sense of dystopia fuels the scathing vocal wrath.
Wolfbrigade will tour in support of the new album, with a solid list of festival performances across Europe confirmed for the Spring and Summer months, including Huset Harcdore Fest, Superbowl Of Hardcore, SMSF Fest, Obscene Extreme, DIY Fest, Wacken Open Air, and more, with additional tour dates to be announced in the weeks ahead.

Formed in 1995, initially as Wolfpack, after five years the band ventured into the new millennium as Wolfbrigade. Having released an impressive load of LPs and smaller releases through both entities, and has toured widely across Europe, the US, and more over the years, making the band one of the most premier acts of the genre. Their damning music surges with outcries against human socio-political injustices, screaming for transformation and freedom through their brutalizing brew of Lycanthro Punk.
