Wolves in the Attic

Wolves in the Attic


If dinosaur jr and the strokes had a threesome with kim gordon, wolves would be the bastard child. Flowing melodies, driving rhythm, dirty rock n roll.


Wolves in the Attic is the creative vehicle of singer/songwriter Eric Moffitt. Many of Eric's younger years were spent cutting his teeth as a guitar player in various bands in central Iowa, mainly with pop rockers Keepers of the Carpet. In 2007, he decided it was time to break away and go it alone with a new band after a failed relationship left him in uncharted creative waters. Trent Derby, who has been drumming in bands since the age of 11, was recruited as the the bands drummer and provides a solid, driving foundation. Nick Parks and Justin Niceswanger of The Coffin Flyz round out the band on guitar and bass respectively.
Pulling influences from darkwave and post-punk, indie-rock like Built to Spill and Modest Mouse, and singer/songwriters like Elliott Smith and Sun Kil Moon; Wolves in the Attic have a very original sound.
In recent months WITA have shared the stage with The Faint, Neva Dinova, Health, Ladyhawk, Oh My God, The Poison Control Center, Baby Teeth, and Darker My Love.
WITA recently signed with Mission Freak Records, a new label started by the founders of the Mission Creek Festival, which takes place in Iowa City and San Francisco every spring. Look for their debut album "Electronic Hearts" in October of 2008.


For you, For now

Written By: Eric Moffitt

I sold my soul for you.
I broke my world for you.

Now that your gone, I know I forever will be free.

I fucked your friend with you.
I stole her soul with you.

Now that your gone, I know I forever will be free.
