Seán Grant and the Wolfgang Set To Release New Single “Montreal (Watch Me Bending)”

Out 8th April via VBAH Records

Trailblazer, Seán Grant and the Wolfgang returns with the phenomenal new cut “Montreal (Watch Me Bending)” which is set for release April 8th via new label home VBAH Records. The new single is the first taste of Grant’s forthcoming album ‘333’ which VBAH describes as a daring dose of darkgaze that treads a new path to enlightenment.

With the new release, Seán Grant documents his own personal transformation away from a spiral of drink, drugs and self-destruction, following the dissolution of the Wolfgang’s original incarnation.

“I had to re-learn life,” says the enigmatic frontman, who discovered meditation, and delved into the teachings of different religions, philosophies, ancient civilisations, and long-forgotten knowledge, as part of his existential exploration.

“Transformed, transcending, watch me bending,” sings Grant of his steps along a more spiritual path, which discounts nothing and wonders at everything. The alternative, he ponders, is to “join the sheep in Montreal” – a reflection on following the flock that famously roam the Canadian city’s Parc Maisonneuve.

“With life, you have to go with the bends and the curves, like the path or the river. And if you stand too rigid then the more likely you’ll get damaged or hurt,” says Grant, adding: “I don’t know everything, but I’m learning. I think that’s the way you have to live. ‘Montreal’ and the new album feels like I’m starting to understand this more.” 

With the importance of the influence, highlighted above, we implore you to soak in the essential new single when released into the world.

The new single engulfs the audience immediately. Pelting the listener into the centre of this mammoth creation, initiating the intense journey with the most visceral of textures, bold, dark, cutting. The thunderous synth notes layer this deep, deep, unstoppable low-end whilst the rolling, progressive drum beat staggers the intensity and emphasises the complex depth of this vast ensemble.

The thick tones sculpt the immersive landscape and Seán enters the formidable atmosphere with the contrasting vocal notes and addictive pull to those rich harmonies. Raw lyrics hook the audience as Seán’s vocal melodies bring this delicate, intimate influence into the release. Allowing this stark distinction between the brooding tonality and the honest lyrical values, Grant’s dynamic vocal range twists and turns throughout the composition, the notes ooze such charisma. When the exploration suddenly slows to break, adding this immediate re-introduction to silence, the audience finds themselves on the back-foot as the journey takes an unpredictable route before the sudden explosive array of attributes unite and ramp up the chaos once more. Somehow returning to the journey with more aggression, heaviness and power.

Seán Grant and the Wolfgang capture their unstoppable force within their new release, proving yet agin their progression as an outfit naturally sharpens. Their showmanship blazes their crushing ambiance, the songwriting provides this world you can easily connect to. The emotion of this artist intimately weaving throughout the forefront of the soundscape, embraced and affected by all.

Following up from one of the most influential releases of 2021 with the album “33″, the forthcoming new album “333” will be one for the ages, a release that will shape out the rest of your musical year. Teaming up with the impressive Vandalism Begins At Home Records, the collaboration will welcome the new record July 8th.
