Having reared their head about 12 months ago, Gnarwolves have been making a steady rise in becoming the UK's most respected and hardworking band. With two EP's, 2011's FunClub and 2012's CRU, under their belts already they are heading back into the studio to record another bunch of tracks that will be released by the ever respected Tangled Talk/Big Scary Monsters label in May. Lewis Johns (Kerouac, Goodtime Boys, Bastions) who recorded CRU will be handling the recording duties again.
In 2012 the band started to pick up the legwork under going countless tours where and when they could. They clocked a huge tour at the end of last year with Lower Than Atlantis and they are now about to embark on two huge UK/European tours with Broadwall Calls and then The Story So Far with a handful of festival appearances along the way.
Not sure if Gnarwolves will be sleeping in their own beds much in 2013 but the year ahead is certainly proving to be their most interesting yet!

The album is the first in history to chart without selling a single copy.
Earlier this month a twitter campaign asking Disney to make Elsa their first LGBT princess in the ‘Frozen’ sequel went viral.
