Manchester, UK rockers The Wolf Howls When I Scream Your Name began as a solo project by singer and guitarist Matthew Awbery, originally setting out to deliver sad, emotive songs similar to the likes of Julien Baker and The National. However, it soon became apparent that Awbery’s material was different and demanded a band. Enter drummer Sam Johnson and bassist Harry Woodrow, and the new group set out to record their debut EP.
Set to be released on April 19th, To Be Where There Is Pale Light is an alternative rock record that spans influences from Thrice to Radiohead, and even City & Colour. Consistently dealing with the topic of death, To Be Where There Is Pale Light evokes the feelings of wishing for the end, confusion, and loss.
Awbery states, “I definitely had a vision with this record. Once I got going with the first song, I knew that I wanted to write something dark, bold, and emotive.”
