PRE-RECORD STORE DAY SHOW ANNOUNCED
Wolf People have shared the new video for When the Fire is Dead in the Grate. Shot at dawn along the River Ouse with the help of Davy Willis and Marisa Straccia and directed by the band, the track is taken from the band’s acclaimed second album ‘Fain’.
Says vocalist/ guitarist Jack Sharp, “The video is meant as a B-Movie take on the Celtic mythology hinted in the lyrics. It sets out to capture one side of the song’s imagery as we see it. Shot on a beautiful morning in September on an incredible stretch of the Ouse just outside Bedford. It ended up as a great excuse to mess about on the river for a day and a night, ducking low-flying kingfishers (that we sadly failed to film) and trying to avoid getting the equipment wet. “

The band will also be playing a special pre–Record Store Day show on 12th April at the Union Music Store in Lewes, East Sussex.
“[Wolf People] via blasts of fuzz guitar, sweaty funk blues drumming, pastoral melody and a folklorist’s sense of storytelling, are on a mission to evoke a magical – and often brutal – rural England that is under-represented in modern songwriting” –The Guardian
“Just enough Sabbath-styled hard riffing to appeal to even the basest rock fan. “**** -Mojo
“A spidery tangle of rural mores and garage grooves”
“Wolf People triumph..” NME
“A stirring, quietly formidable achievement” Prog Magazine
“An ability to create a totally convincing alternative universe via beautifully crafted lyrics; British folk-informed compositions; the freely breathing, tight-but-loose execution that accepts few extra ingredients to the sound of a superbly tuned-in band playing together in a room.”
