Back in the day, after only 5 shows, WOLVES LIKE US instantly signed with Prosthetic Records for a 3 album deal, and hit the road for tours and shows with KVELERTAK, PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS, SWING KIDS, JUNIUS and GALLOWS and festivals like Oya or Groezrock in the months to come.

Now with Pelagic Records ,"Brittle Bones" shows a grown up and more dynamic wolf pack than ever before.

"There was less tension this time, we almost didn't argue at all - which is rare for us", says drummer Jonas Thire.

"A lot has happened to us at a personal level. Positives, like we all have kids now. But dark shit too.

There's been a divorce. Lars has been really sick. He wrote the lyrics as a kind of diary to deal with issues like abuse, literally and figuratively." The band has been good friends with iconic post-hardcore band PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS for years, whose singer Gared O'Donnell visited them in Oslo randomly that week when WOLVES LIKE US were tracking vocals for Brittle Bones.

He ended up laying down his second guest appearance for the band: "On a drunken night in May after Lars, Toy and Rune (the engineer) had taken him out for one too many beers", comments vocalist & guitarist Lars Kristensen...

"we ended up shirtless doing vocals". Lyrically, the red thread that goes through Brittle Bones is the topic of "honesty", which is to say "dealing with demons in a real way, facing them and giving them the middle finger so to speak", says Lars.

Brittle Bones is juxtaposing the catchy and the raspy, the pretty and the ugly, comfort, and disturbance of such...

for the essence of art can only be understood as equally "disturbing the comfortable and comforting the disturbed", says Lars.
