Wolf Gang Unveils "The King And All Of His Men"Multi-Talented British Artist Hailed by NME as "Indie Rock's Best New Songwriter" Releases New Single; Acclaimed Track Already Scoring on SiriusXM; "The King And All Of His Men" Arrives Today (November 15, 2011)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/11 -- Elektra Records has announced the release of "The King And All Of His Men," the extraordinary new single from Wolf Gang. The track -- already garnering airplay on SiriusXM's "Alt Nation" -- is available at all DSPs starting today.
"The King And All Of His Men" is featured on Wolf Gang's full length album "SUEGO FAULTS," which is unquestionably among 2011's most acclaimed debuts in the UK. A U.S. release date for the album as well as a slate of eagerly awaited North American tour dates, will be announced shortly.
The new single "The King And All of His Men" is now available at iTunes (http://bit.ly/vJmp5M) and can be streamed via SoundCloud as well (http://bit.ly/s09s10). The official video is also now available on the Elektra YouTube Channel (http://youtu.be/TZLv36LvRo8).
Known to friends and family as Max McElligott, Wolf Gang was just named one of the "100 Best Things In The World Right Now," by GQ magazine (UK edition). Wolf Gang's self-titled debut EP was released in the U.S. earlier this year, earning instant applause as one of SPIN's "Next Big Things." Highlighted by the UK hit single, "Lions In Cages," the "WOLF GANG" EP was co-produced by the legendary Dave Fridmann (MGMT, The Flaming Lips, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), who discovered Wolf Gang's original bedroom demo of "Lions In Cages" back in October 2010 and swiftly invited him to record at his world famous Tarbox Road Studios in upstate Cassadaga, New York.
McElligott has received a plethora of praise since releasing his 2009 debut single, "Pieces of You," marking Wolf Gang as among Britain's most exciting new talents. NME hailed him as "indie rock's best new songwriter," noting that "tracks like the exuberant 'Lions In Cages' and the sultry rolls and melodic shivers of 'Back To Back' are ingeniously crafted and quite gorgeous." The Guardian applauded Wolf Gang's "shiny, tuneful arena-ready pop-rock," while the Times suggested McElligott's "addictive hooks and reverb-laden falsetto could soundtrack many a festival tent in 2011."
Inspired by the likes of Talking Heads, Roxy Music and David Bowie, as well as more contemporary artists such as Arcade Fire, Wolf Gang's sound packs in an abundance of suave panache, ear-thwacking beats and heart-throttling melodies. With an abundance of tours firmly under his belt -- including headline tours, support slots with Florence + The Machine, The Killers, Miike Snow, Metric, and The Naked And Famous, countless festival appearances (including our own SXSW), as well as topping the bill on the influential 2011 NME Radar Tour -- McElligott and his crack combo have quickly cultivated a dedicated and avid fan base.
