are a soulful hard Rockâ€™nâ€™Roll band from Bristol U.K. With their thumping, raucous sound bursting at the seams with foot-stomping rhythms and soulful swells, the fresh-faced British rockers hand-out swagger by the bucket-load.
Born from a collective love affair with rockâ€™nâ€™rollâ€™s true roots, BlackWolfâ€™s soulful hard edged sound concentrates on channelling a contemporary voice with a vintage focus. Swagger-laden riffs collide with soulful swells. Pounding rhythms stomp, swing and shuffle alongside blues-soaked melodies, all providing an ideal base for lyrics that remember their honesty and a live show that feels not only energetic but revitalised.
Alongside touring as special guests to both The Answer and The Union (featuring Luke Morley of Thunder) the Bristol, UK based BlackWolf have supported a number of noteworthy acts including: Toby Jepson of Little Angels, The Temperance Movement, Michael Monroe, Reckless Love, Voodoo Six, Neville Macdonald of SKIN, Jettblack and Revoker plus many more. Their 2012 dÃ©but EP release â€˜Taking Rootâ€™ along with singles â€˜Mr Maker' (released September, 2013) and 'Keep Moving On' (released February, 2014) have seen the band receive critical success and a mass of positive reviews, grabbing the interest and high hopes of the online press as well as regional and national magazines. Along with many international and independent radio stations, BlackWolfâ€™s recent radio plays include prolific stations such as Planet Rock Radio, Team Rock Radio and Total Rock Radio.
BlackWolfâ€™s short but hard-earned road started with them racking up their achievements early on. After driving through some 12,000 bands to win a spot at the Surface Unsigned Festival Final at the O2 Arena, London, their next achievement saw them being hand-picked from over 900 undiscovered UK bands to compete in the final of the 2012 Highway To Hell 3 competition at The Classic Grand, Glasgow. BlackWolf then went on to win a spot at Hard Rock Hell VI where they not only succeeded in winning over the festival crowd, but also left reviewers and bloggers marking them out as one of the best new rockâ€™nâ€™roll bands to watch. The band's recent attention grabbing performance at 2013's Planet Rockstock has only cemented this feeling further.
In order to fund their first full-length album BlackWolf launched their first ever Pledge Music campaign in April 2013. Fans reacted instantly and in just nine days BlackWolf had already reached 50% of their entire cost target, a few weeks later and the project had reached its 100% goal. Their dÃ©but album titled â€˜The Huntâ€™ was released to the public on March 2nd, 2014.
With comparisons being made between themselves and successful peers; Rival Sons, The Answer and Alter Bridge among others, BlackWolf draw their sound from a multitude of inspirational wells; ranging from the great Led Zeppelin, Muddy Waters, AC/DC, Chuck Berry, early Guns & Roses and Wilson Pickett to contemporary giants Black Stone Cherry, Mastodon and Avenged Sevenfold.
