The Weaver brothers of Pacific Northwestern black metal two-piece Wolves In The Throne Room have released a joint statement regarding the current state of their band:
“After months of journeying we’re settled back into our life at home. Soft, warm breezes, the calls of Ravens and Eagles, the scent of Cedar and Salt Water. The Northwest Summer is a soothing balm to the stresses and strains of the road and the alchemic pressure-cooker of the recording studio. But it has been a great two years for us. We are so proud of Celestial Lineage, and our tours in the United States and Europe were inspiring and full of good experiences. Contrary to sensationalist rumor, we have no desire or intention to end Wolves In The Throne Room. It is very possible that future albums will be recorded. Live performances might transpire. But for now, we are reconnecting to hearth and home. We’d like to extend our heartfelt thank to everyone who has helped and supported us over the years. Playing this music has transformed us as people, and we are blessed to have shared this path with so many other travelers.”
Despite confronting and debunking hiatus rumors, it’s unclear what the future holds for the band. The brothers will issue more information in due time.
In other news, Wolves In The Throne Room recently pressed a brand new vinyl pressing of their landmark 2008 full-length Two Hunters. The album likely considered the “fan favorite” from the band’s catalog of releases, Two Hunters has undeniably helped elevate WITTR into the upper echelon of contemporary extreme metal as well as having a substantial impact on USBM in general. The Two Hunters 2xLP is available direct from the band now at their official website.
