The Act: SEAN GRANT & THE WOLFGANG

The Release: '7 DEADLY 7'

The Label: fierce panda records

The Impact Date: SEPTEMBER 2ND 2016

The Truth: Sean Grant & The Wolfgang consist of Sean Grant (vocals / guitar) and his wolves Steve Fiske (guitar / vocals), Phil Andreas (keyboards) and Matt Banham (drums). They dwell in the middling earth between Milton Keynes and Northampton, and revel in a rabble-rousing brand of tightly wound rock'n'roll armed with beards, blazers and blisteringly rowdy tunesmithery, as evidenced by the fist-clenching fury of previous releases the ‘We The Working Class’ EP and the ‘War Machines’ EP.

All the more surprising, then, that title track of their current '7 Deadly 7' EP should turn out to be a so startlingly sombre. Comprised virtually entirely of hymnal vocals and half-hidden keyboards it flashes back to a time when ‘Tiny Children’ by The Teardrop Explodes walked tall and therefore represents a dangerously beautiful choral moment. See the video at https://youtu.be/97bpmwxoIQQ and buy the entire digital EP from www.fiercepanda.co.uk/shop.php?release=512 right now.

"This track draws on experiences from school and church," explains Grant. "I grew up around religion, but sitting outside of it looking in, trying to make sense of it all. It's a dilemma, mainly as my mother is a Born Again Christian and my father an atheist, so I was given both views. '7 Deadly 7' isn't saying which is right or wrong, it's an observation of a man who is looking for peace and quiet to fall into and take hold of him."

Happily for those of you already attuned to the traditional Wolfgang brand of howling melody and highly strung harmonies elsewhere the '7 Deadly 7' EP features three stridently rocking new songs with lead radio track 'Brother', 'Best Of Men' and 'Take A Man's Body' all produced and mixed by Guy Massey (Spiritualized, Manic Street Preachers, Depeche Mode et al). Better still no fewer than three of the four EP tracks are accompanied by their very own videos which don't shirk on the tombstones, burning flames, neo-gothic imagery and mad staring eyes. Come stare into those eyes at this Sean Grant & The Wolfgang live show here:
