Lone Wolf unveils video for ‘Crimes’ and announces new shows!

Having seemingly withdrawn from making music altogether due to a crippling battle with anxiety, it came as somewhat of a shock when Paul Marshall (Lone Wolf) announced that in 2015 he would be releasing his third album Lodge.

Marshall posted a blog on his website explaining that the one place he ever felt human, The Lodge in Bridlington, was to be no more.  This is the place where Marshall had recorded all of his previous material, and the thought of never being able to make music there again seemed to be the catalyst that made him unlock the iron gate of his anxiety and emerge for perhaps one last time.

Lone Wolf approached the recording of this album very differently to his previous works on Bella Union and his own label (both critically acclaimed The Devil and I and The Lovers).  He locked himself inside The Lodge with only his producer (long time band mate James Kenosha) and trumpeter David Wärmegård for six days.  Despite evidently being an accomplished guitarist, he devoted his attention to the piano on this record, and decided to use this one last chance to record in his mental haven like a confession booth to speak openly about who he really is, and the skin he lives in.  Albums do not come more human and organic than this.

“‘Crimes’ is an example of me really holding back on this record.  It was really tempting to layer more things over the hip-hop beat, but the coldness of the space is what seems to hold this record together. The video is an homage to the imagery that got me writing again.  I was up late one evening, and stumbled upon video footage of Pripyat and Chernobyl.  The desolation and sheer emptiness of that place seemed to hit home and it all felt very familiar in it’s essence, and so i felt it needed to be displayed along with the music it inspired.”
