A. Quinton — Oct. 22nd 2010
I like these guys (and gal). I like them a lot. Here’s a press release about their new album, Sins Of The Past.
Philadelphia, PA Â October 1, 2010 â€“ The Young Werewolves, the Philadelphia based rockabilly, garage, punk trio, are set to release their third studio recording titled, â€˜Sins of the Past.â€™ Â The timing of the new release coincides with recent trends toward all things vampire and horror.
With the popular Twilight movies, True Blood television program and even the Harry Potter books all referencing werewolf characters, the music of The Young Werewolves is right on time and with the times to such a degree that within the last year the bandâ€™s back catalogue has been raided for programs like Vampire Diaries and Supernatural (the proceeds from the licensing helped fund the recording of the new album).
â€˜Twelve Steps to Rock N Rollâ€™ is the first single from the album and is available for download through The Young Werewolvesâ€™ bandcamp site which is linked from their official website. Â â€˜Sins of the Pastâ€™ had its official release at the beginning of the Halloween season when The Young Werewolves performed at The Trocadero Theater in Philadelphia on Saturday September 25, 2010 during the annual Zombie Prom. Â Attendance was sold out with over 1000 tickets purchased for the event.
The release follows the band’s 2008 recording, â€˜Cheat The Devil,â€™ produced by horror film star Sid Haig. Â The Young Werewolves blend the styles of rockabilly, psychobilly, surf, punk, garage and pop music into an infectious mix. Â For further information visit the band’s facebook and myspace profiles.
