For fans of… My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Neil Young
“Stadium sized melodies and four-part harmonies without diving headlong into a pool full of cliches…”

Three Blind Wolves announced the release of single In Here Somewhere and supporting b-side “Kid’s Allright” last week. The video for the single was premiered yesterday exclusively on The 405 but now you can watch it via the band’s YouTube channel.
The band have also announced a headline tour in May to support the release of their debut album Sing Hallelujah for the Old Machine, out 6th May.
Having been compared to My Morning Jacket and Neil Young, In Here Somewhere features Three Blind Wolves’ warm Americana-tinged sound, yet with a chilling core. Previously released single Parade, which was released back in October 2012 saw the band rise to great success earning them a great amount of respect. With plays and support from John Kennedy at XFM and Vic Galloway at BBC Radio 1 Scotland and the band also popped into BBC Radio 2 to perform a session for Dermot O’Leary. Amongst a great amount of radio backing the supporting video for Parade was featured on NME and Artrocker.
The band all met playing shows around the Glasgow music scene, Ross Clark (guitar, vocals) was a solo artist and met David Cleary (lead guitar, backing vocals, mandolin) and Kevin Mackay (bass, backing vocals) through their first group Rainbowsheep. They played their first show together in a Japanese noodle bar and their friendship grew from there, playing in clubs, bars, parks and various flats around Glasgow. When it the time came for the friends to form the band properly, Davie and Kevin’s a long time friend, Fearghas Lyon (drums), joined and they immediately bonded over jamming to Cream and Daft Punk covers; Three Blind Wolves were born and the four boys haven’t looked back since.
After releasing their mini album Sound of the Storm in 2011, the band quickly gained support from the press. Scotland’s answer to Time Out, The List Magazine, hailed them as a “countrified Modest Mouse” whilst The Skinny Magazine said their debut recalled “genre-defining artists like Bright Eyes and more recently Bon Iver“. MOJO Magazine also featured their track “Emily Rose” on a covermount CD and Rolling Stone said they were “the Scottish answer to the Decemberists“.
With this latest single release, a tour with Frightened Rabbit and an album planned later in the year, Three Blind Wolves certainly plan to make a big impression in 2013.
