With a sound that sits in the centre of modern rock’s genre pool, Raised By Wolves are many things to many people. They have the energy of pop punk, the emotion of post-hardcore and the big riffs of melodic rock.

Biography

Melbourne four-piece RAISED BY WOLVES formed early in May 2008. Within 12 short weeks, the band had already formed a tight-knit live unit and quickly took to playing every local venue that would welcome them. By month three, the band had more than enough confidence to book a chunk of studio time at Melbourne's Debasement Studios with producers JT and Adam Cole (Bugdust).

Based on the overwhelming success of these first sessions they pitched a proposal to legendary punk rock producer Bill Stevenson (Black Flag, Rise Against, Anti-Flag, Alkaline Trio, The Descendents, All, Propagandhi, Comeback Kid... and the list goes on) to mix the record. Which he promptly accepted. Masters and production notes were sent to Blasting Room studios, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA for the final mix.

Then... to ice the cake Alan Douches (Converge, Lifetime, Hatebreed, Ben Folds Five, Mastodon) of West West Side Music was recruited to do all final mastering.

Raised by Wolves are definitely from the school of hard knocks; they can sleep standing up and hammer out blistering, melodic punk rock whilst held at gun point.

“We are proud to hail from a punk rock background and combine this raw energy with a focus on strong hooks and melody," said lead singer Jesse. “This band is built on a firm foundation of friendships (old and new) and we have applied this same “through thick and thin” attitude to our songwriting on this entire record.”

Their stunning debut album "Equality" is the result of all the above. A potent mix. An incredible listen.

“Equality” is set for a April 10th “09” release date - out on Metric/Shock Records.
