Midwest Rockers A Vulture Wake Release ‘Animal’ EP

‘One.Kingdom.Animal’ LP (Which Merges The Previously Released ‘Kingdom’ EP and the ‘Animal’ EP On Limited Edition Vinyl) Out November 11; Now Available For Pre-Order

(ex-ALL, Drag The River, Black Flag)

Tour Dates Announced

“It’s a slow burn of a track that’s nothing short of perfect and showcases the band’s superb songwriting talent. The new EP is a must for any music fan.”- Backseat Mafia

“Chad Price was the third singer of Descendents offshoot ALL in the ’90s, following Dave Smalley and Scott Reynolds, and after that he fronted the alt-country band Drag the River and led a folky solo project, but he finally returned to punk in 2018 with his new band A Vulture Wake (whose bassist Dave Klein was in later lineups of Black Flag and Screeching Weasel). (They) are now gearing up for another new EP that kind of combines the energy of ALL with the earthier feel of Drag the River.”- BrooklynVegan

“Featuring an ear grabbing vocal performance from Chad Price over the intricately played guitar riffing and thunderous drumming. The track is a unique slice of punk rock that seems to flow from a different vein from most bands out there. There is a mature and softer approach taken here that doesn’t go racing headlong to the end, but gracefully waltzers with its head held high.”- Backseat Mafia

A Vulture Wake rages forth through 2022 with their second E.P. of the year! ‘Animal’, out now, is a progressive powerhouse of hooks & riffs – 5 songs continuing the band’s campaign to “Do No Harm; Take No Shit” while taking aim at the powers that be, inner demons, and a bleak future on this dying planet.

AVW now offers solutions to the issues raised in their previous releases – commit violence, give in, leave the planet, sleep? The choice is ours.

‘Animal’ follows the critically-acclaimed and fan-embraced ‘Kingdom’ E.P. – Also Produced, Engineered & Mixed by Mike Kennerty (Direct Hit!, Red City Radio, Copyrights).
