Wolf Eyes announce new album, stream new album, announce new tour dates, stream new tour dates

Whoa, scary! Just in time for Halloween, y’all: those spooky cats-with-wolves’-eyes in Detroit Michigan’s own post-industrial noise outfit Wolf Eyes — who, BTW, totes have a new record called I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces a-comin’ out on October 30 on Jack White’s (also spooky and vaguely-Detroit-oriented) Third Man Records — have announced that they’re streaming the new album in its kooky, hairy entirety over by-there at The FADER! And… if you think about it, “streaming” rhymes with “screaming” (heck, even if you DON’T think about it, it does), and “screaming” rhymes with… Halloween. So, see? This all works. Moving on!

But wait, “new album?!?!” you say? Yeah, this is the first Wolf Eyes release since No Answer: Lower Floors back in 2013. It’s six tracks long and features a current lineup of Nathan Young, John Olson, and “Crazy” Jim Baljoo. “This [album] is a bit of our bands personal history,” Young says. “It is not intentionally meant to be shocking, sad or scary — but it is.”

But wait, “what the hell’s all-been going ON in that band’s history during the interim two years?!?!” you say? Welp:

Jim went to jail 4 times and almost dies from spinal meningitis. John declares ‘noise is dead’ and pisses off the entire experimental music scene. My older brother Peter Bradley Young died at age 45, my family’s good friend and drummer of the Stooges Scott Asheton died at 64. Wolf Eyes tours Israel and visits with the entire experimental music underground, radicals, atheists and a military cadet modern dance troupe performing to our music. Later in the year Wolf Eyes performs at the ‘The Unveiling’ the largest Satanic event in history. Michigan christian militants groups become interested in our live shows.

Yeah. That’s right. Any MORE questions, you jerk? Or can I just hit everyone up with the stream and some accompanying fall tour dates, already? …That’s what I thought.
