From humble beginnings in 2005, VERSUS THE WOLF has proven to be a band well worth the praises they have received from an ever-growing base of loyal fans over the years. With 3 music videos under their belt and having played hundreds of shows, they've paid their dues and are well equipped to "bring the rock" wherever they perform.

They managed to successfully invent themselves as New Altum but gained real momentum after they reinvented themselves as VERSUS THE WOLF in 2010 with their debut album, UNCOVERING FACES. This project is considered by the industry to be fresh and progressive and is taking the South African and international music world by storm. This album was also recently nominated for a 2011 South African Music Award (SAMA) for best Album Art & packaging.

After having toured & shared the stage with top local & international acts such as Johnny Foreigner, Pendulum, Becoming the Archetype, aKing, Van Coke Kartel, Isochronous, Jack Parow and having either headlining or perform at top South African music festivals such as SplashyFen 2011, Ramfest, Woodstock & Arisefest, VERSUS THE WOLF have proven time and time again that they have no problem putting crowds in excess of 7 000 people into a frenzy. Among many other achievements they have also appeared on international & national television channels such as SABC1, SABC 2, SABC 3, MK and ETV.

The first single off Uncovering Faces, the new album, was rated 97% “HOT” on top local radio station 5FM.
VERSUS THE WOLF's sound is best described as a mix of progressive, experimental and emotive rock infused with intense passion and conviction. Their musical influences soar across the board and are influenced by bands such as As Cities Burn, Mew, Thrice, Muse, Underoath and, on the other end of the scale, bands such as Bon Iver, Iron and Wine and The Album Leaf. Listeners can always expect something fresh and thought-provoking to come out of a VERSUS THE WOLF performance.

* Being nominated for a South African Music Award (SAMA) 2011 for best album art / packaging.
