WOLF! Featuring Scott Metzger Announce New EP ‘Adult Entertainment,’ Share Single “Ratso”
After a six-year hiatus, WOLF! featuring Scott Metzger, Jon Shaw and Taylor Floreth have returned with a new EP, entitled Adult Entertainment, due out on Oct. 28 via Royal Potato Family. Along with the announcement, the trio shared a new single off the upcoming six-track, “Ratso,” listen now.
WOLF!’s forthcoming extended play was tracked at Restoration Sound in Brooklyn, N.Y., and was mixed by Chris Connors. Combining elements of surf rockabilly with a sense of ‘60s boogaloo and a heavy dose of experimentation, the group’s first offering, “Ratso,” is an ideal introduction to a set of music steeped in deep instrumentation.
The group also shared that their impending track “Hawaiian Shirt” features Metzger’s Joe Russo’s Almost Dead bandmate, Marco Benevento, on Farfisa organ. Additional songs on the EP include the guitar-heavy “Hey Francis,” gleeful “Cottonmouth,” and expansive “Patty Cake.” In total, the EP is comprised of six tunes that showcase the ensemble’s unique instrumental ability as a powerful configuration.
“WOLF! has a thing. There’s an innate chemistry when the three of us play together,” reveals Metzger via press release. “I don’t hear anyone else really playing instrumental music like this right now. It’s a guitar-centered band, but it’s not about guitar solos or fancy chops. It’s about three dudes in a room making music in real time that just straight up feels good, you get it the first time you hear it. I think we all need a little of that these days,” he concluded.
Moreover, the band has also shared dates for a short east coast jaunt which will commence at the beginning of October, when they descend upon Brooklyn, N.Y.’s The Sultan Room on Oct. 6, followed by an Oct. 7 gig at Stage One in Fairfield, Conn. The final stops will take WOLF! to Pembroke, Mass., for a show at Soundcheck Studios on Oct. 8, before the final concert on Oct. 9 at Still Partners in Sea Cliff, N.Y.
