There's no lambs for slaughter || She Cries Wolf

A debut album, a label signing and a charity concert in support of environmental protection vessel Sea Shepherd, 2015 has been a non-stop rollercoaster for Gold Coast outfit, She Cries Wolf. The post-hardcore act are an exploding force, with upcoming tour dates and the promise of new material these guys are the type of act that you might not have heard about, but really, really should have.

Pay attention, there are great things ahead.

So let's talk about your Elevnth Records signing! What made this label the one you ended up signing with?
We're a young band and Troy has only just launched the label - so it was the perfect fit. Plus, we share the same goals, individually and mutually. Looking to do some amazing things together.

What does a signing change for you guys now?
It's just more hands helping to lift the load. There are a lot of backend things that make up a band and they were starting to weigh us down. It just means that we will be able to do things quickly and take steps towards our goals, whilst having fun - which is the most important thing.

You already have a 2015 EP, when can we expect She Cries Wolf's first single with Elevnth Records?
Before the end of the year. Like a thief in the night.

What is your aim with the music? Where should we expect to see She Cries Wolf in the future?
We're trying to bring back the live element to being in a band. This reflects heavily within our sound (on record). Everywhere and anywhere that will have us [we'll play a show for].

Speaking of, is there a story behind your band name?
'The Boy Who Cries Wolf' is an extremely sexist story, girls cry wolf too.

Seeing as I won't be able to make one of your upcoming shows, tell me, what am I missing out on?
[Thirty] minutes of cathartic energy. Mainly from the crowd - letting go and leaving their worries at the door. See you at a show soon?
