Album Review: wolves & wolves & wolves & wolves – “The Cross and the Switchblade”

wolves&wolves&wolves&wolves is one of the most well rounded punk acts to hit the scene in the past five years. Their rustic, honest approach to both their songwriting as well as music composition is probably their hallmark and most certainly sets them apart from the majority of their peers, often displaying a level of sophistication and skill, typically reserved for more veteran acts. That same trait is also a contributing factor to their expeditious raise through the ranks of relatively new bands, where they have (rightly) been near the top for the past couple years. Now, the Wolves from Winston-Salem are back with their second LP, The Cross and the Switchblade which is set to release on September 16th through Wiretap Records. The only thing I ever feared was that because the caliber of music was so high, that they may have reached a ceiling. That notion was put to rest after one listen, as this LP has only proven to solidify their pole position among up and coming acts. If anything, it has only further embedded them into that spot. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one impressed as there is talk from a few insiders already about considering this one for their Album of the Year lists. Check out my full review below!
