Biography

When veteran Radio One broadcaster Steve Lamacq chose eaststrikewest as his band to look out for in 2009, on the back of their debut EP Rosa, it is unclear if he could have predicted the ripples debut full length w o l v v e s has created. For many young bands, the weight of expectation would be an intimidating burden, but for eaststrikewest it provided a catalyst.
Showcasing eaststrikewest at the peak of their powers, w o l v v e s, is an engaging musical journey from a band displaying a song writing maturity beyond their years. Epic and cinematic in feel, w o l v v e s rewards the listener with its expansive soundscapes and ethereal melodies. With single in waiting Stumble, emblazoned with its soaring vocal lines and driving rhythms a firm favourite amongst the bands’ burgeoning fanbase, it is on tracks like The Architect where the band show their skill for genuinely inspiring musicianship, crafting instantly memorable songs.
Formed in Essex in late 2007 from former members of the critically acclaimed threemovements, eaststrikewest almost instantaneously courted major label interest. Ever the barometer of the UK underground music scene Thirty Days Of Night Records (Bring Me The Horizon, Gallows, Architects) negotiated tirelessly to secure the signature of one of the UK’s most exciting bands.
Having already achieved a sizeable amount of radio airplay in the UK, as well as attracting impressive press coverage at home and from as far afield as the LA Times, it is only a matter of time until the world succumbs to this pack of w o l v v e s.

March 2010 will see the band embark on a 30 date tour of the UK in support of their debut single Stumble which is released on 7"/digital download on 1/3/2010
