Hour of the Wolf is a mutant born of the high desert that has been slowly growing over the past three years, feeding on cactus, roots, and the occasional infant. Located in Prescott, Arizona the band has established itself in the region by playing locally and making trips to the Phoenix area, self-releasing demos, and training to become a hard, fast, rock and roll machine. Beginning the first week of April 2006, HOTW will be recording an 8-song E.P., entitled “Power of the Wolf”, to be released at the beginning of May 2006 on Limekiln Records. As well, they will be self-releasing a split seven-inch with All Fired Up, a tenacious band of local outlaws. In support of these two releases HOTW will be hitting the road, with help from Radio City Booking, May through August 2006, hoping to stir the bowels of America like a bowl of hot chili and a handful of laxatives.
Although the band has been actively playing, until the past year, the Wolf has not been able to grow into the beast it has envisioned. Over the last five years, four of the five members in the current line-up played in Life in Pictures, a hardcore band they started in high school, played hundreds of shows in the southwest, released an EP on Limekiln records (2003) and a full length record on Clockwork recordings (2005), and embarked on two US tours as well as many west coast adventures. Through this experience and the recent break-up of LIP, they have realized their drive to be career musicians and are truckin’ full steam ahead with Hour of the Wolf.
