Alter The Press: Why should Alter The Press! readers check you out?
Wolves At Heart: We play honest pop punk music. There's really not much that I can type here that would better describe what we are about than by seeing us live and deciding for yourself. There's a ton of bands trying to do this kind of thing, and we can all tell from hearing the first verse of a song which ones really mean it or not. We're not trying to be something we're not, we play what we are, and make the music we'd want to hear, and I think anyone that has met us can support that.
ATP: What's the story behind the band?
WAH: Burnout 3 came out when we were 14, Ses would have been 12, and while also being an awesome game, has maybe the greatest soundtrack ever. Jimmy Eat World leading into Sahara Hotnights, to Midtown, to Yellowcard. It's all killer. That soundtrack is legitimately a large part of where our influences started. There's so much variety on it, but all really catchy songs. We started playing covers in my attic and at school a few years later, worked up to writing our own songs and have been playing in Glasgow for a few years now. We're all life long friends and at this point we can all be really honest with each other about our likes and dislikes which is great when it comes to working out parts for songs.
ATP: Single highlight as a band so far?
WAH: Lots of things stand out as highlights, but I'd probably have to go with getting to support Senses Fail and Man Overboard here in Glasgow in February, and then being on the Such Gold/KOJI/Starters show the very next night. Personally those shows meant a lot as we look up to these bands and both gigs went really well for us. We've been listening to Senses Fail since our early teens, so to get to play on the same show was pretty surreal. It's great to get the opportunity to play to new and bigger audiences and meet like-minded people who turn into friends in the process.
ATP: What are your plans for the 12 months?
WAH: Our new EP ‘Write It Down’ comes out March 31st through Struggletown Records. We'll be pushing that pretty hard, and hopefully get to play all the songs from it in as many places as possible. We're hoping to be down in England a fair bit during the summer if things come together. If anyone wants to book us, we'll try our very best to get there. Then likely a lot of writing for 1 or maybe 2 more releases this year, depending on how balancing uni work goes. We're looking to keep up the good momentum we have at the moment.
