Listen: Wolf Gang – “Lay Your Love Down”

Wolf Gang

Wolf Gang release their new single “Lay Your Love Down” today on Cherrytree Records. Initially formed as a solo project by London musician Max McElligott, Wolf Gang has since evolved into a full-on collaborative effort between its four members who also include Gavin Slater, James Wood and Lasse Petersen. The band’s debut album, Suego Faults, produced by Dave Fridmann (MGMT, The Flaming Lips) came out in 2011 to critical acclaim and Wolf Gang have quickly cultivated a dedicated and avid fan base through three years of nearly non-stop live performances, including headline tours where the band sold out the historic Troubadour in Los Angeles, support slots with Coldplay, Florence + The Machine, The Killers and most recently Bastille.  Wolf Gang are currently co-headlining the “Cherrytree Presents” Tour, along with label mates Sir Sly and special guests Secret Someones.  Fans who purchase the exclusive “Cherrytree Presents” Tour Bundle will receive a ticket to the show in their city, access to a special meet and greet with the artists, choice of early album pre-order by Sir Sly or Wolf Gang, instant MP3 downloads, and a limited edition Cherrytree tour poster. Please visit www.CherrytreePresents.com for all dates/info. Wolf Gang will release their sophomore album later this fall with British music producer Flood (U2, Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey) who recently won the award for producer of the year at the Brits.

Sir Sly Covers Drake’s “Marvin’s Room”

image001

Fresh off their successful North American tour supporting St. Lucia, Los Angeles based band Sir Sly, release the video for their cover rendition of Drake’s song “Marvin’s Room.”

“We always said that if we covered a song it would be ‘Marvin’s Room.’ The song came out years ago and we were still listening to it all the time when we were on the road in the van. We used to play it stripped down in Jason’s studio as a “what if we did this” kind of thing. And then one day we just decided to record it for fun.”

FULL TRACK: The Chain Gang of 1974 – “Sleepwalking”

GTA

The Chain Gang of 1974, the moniker of genre-jumping singer & multi-instrumentalist Kamtin Mohager, is making headlines with his enthralling new single “Sleepwalking” which is featured on the new television commercial for Grand Theft Auto V. The commercial has been in constant rotation since its debut earlier this month during a new episode of “Breaking Bad,” and the song is the most popular on Grand Theft Auto V’s soundtrack, on sale now at iTunes. “Sleepwalking” is the first single from The Chain Gang of 1974’s highly anticipated sophomore LP Daydream Forever, which is due out February 4 on Warner Bros Records.

The Chain Gang of 1974 just finished a run of West Coast dates with The Vaccines, and is gearing up for a week-long trek with Sir Sly, kicking off October 8 in San Francisco. See below for details.

Daydream Forever was produced by Isom Innis (Foster The People), with additional production and mixing from Tony Hoffer (M83, Phoenix). Earlier this summer, Neon Gold unveiled a first look at the new album, by premiering the song “Miko.” Watch the official lyric video for it below:

The new album is the anticipated follow-up to The Chain Gang of 1974’s widely acclaimed 2011 debut Wayward Fire, which Esquire declared “one of the summer’s most surprisingly fantastic new records,” and earned similar praise from the likes of SPIN, MTV, FADERNYLONRCRD LBL and more. The band has shared the stage with the likes of Foster the People, Big Audio Dynamite, Tapes N Tapes, and The Naked and Famous, as well as a lauded performance at 2011’s Lollapalooza, which Yahoo proclaimed “a fabulous onstage display.”
