Patrick Wolf says hooray for winter with Brumalia EP

Come November 28, Patrick Wolf will raise a glass in celebration of the wine drinking merriment and ecstasy that is the Roman winter solstice, Brumalia. This year, as we dress ourselves in grapes and toast to what’s sure to be one prophetic revelation after another, we’ll be pleased as punch grapes to have musical accompaniment in the form of Wolf’s EP named after the ancient tradition, as we honor Bacchus and his ritualistic madness.

Featuring six new songs (including one written on his iPad), Brumalia also features photographs of Wolf taken by our modern day Athena, Patti Smith, on a freezing cold day. It encapsulates the bleakness and melancholy of England, which as Wolf explains, was an inspiration for the tracks featured on the EP that follows up his most recent, and also mythologically themed, full-length, Lupercalia (TMT Review). Check out some of the man’s tourdates below and raise a glass to wintery merriment.
