Brisbane’s SHE CRIES WOLF are rolling out their razor-sharp new single ‘Magdalene‘ featuring guest vocals from THE AMITY AFFLICTION vocalist Ahren Stringer. The new single is live and available now at iTunes & Apple Music/Spotify/Google Play and all good online stores and streaming outlets. The single comes as a first taste of new material from the band, whose back catalog includes a self-titled EP, albums Divorce and Doubt, as well as a glut of devastatingly heavy singles in 2017 & 2018.Listen to “Magdalene” below.
Luke Harriss, vocalist for SHE CRIES WOLF, broke down the themes of the new single and that the band wanted to put something out there that helped people to understand that they were not alone – “Magdalene is about the struggles many of us face with our own depression and poor self esteem/body image.”
Stringer spoke of his experience working with SHE CRIES WOLF on the track, “I was really stoked that the guys from SHE CRIES WOLF asked me to be a part of this track – I recorded my parts at my house and sent them to the guys. It was sick, I just sung in my wardrobe for an hour and a half!”
SHE CRIES WOLF had a whirlwind 2016/2017 – which saw the release of their second album Doubt, a run of dates with friends Void Of Vision and Justice For The Damned, along with support slots for national and international heavyweights like ‘68, Parkway Drive, Every Time I Die, Polaris, letlive., Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Counterparts.
Going into the back half of 2018, the alternative hardcore outfit then bunkered down in the studio for months, hard at work with renewed energy and focus. This new single follows on from the self-released, while-you-wait teaser single ‘Cultist’ in January of 2018 – and now the Queensland quartet are finally ready to unveil the darkest and most personal material of their career.
Late 2018 saw the group drop a “standout” performance at BIGSOUND‘s showcases – wowing audiences with a kinetic live-show described by Music Feeds as “…a mesmerizing performance wrought with chaotic emotion and haywire energy.”
