Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Reignwolf (Jordan Cook [vocals, guitar], S.J. Kardash [bass], Joseph Braley [drums]) is a rock ‘n’ roll band known for their raw sound and high energy performances. Since debuting in 2012, their powerful live show quickly earned them a devoted following with appearances at major music festivals (Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Glastonbury, Download) and dates opening for some of the most influential bands including Black Sabbath and Pixies. In 2014, Rolling Stone named Reignwolf an “Artist You Need to Know.” Yet over the past seven years, Cook and company only rolled out a handful of singles, racking up over 10 million plays on Spotify…until now, with the long-awaited release of Hear Me Out.
Media Praise for Hear Me Out:
“Hear Me Out packs nearly a decade of creative power in 10 tracks, each endowed with hard-driving guitar riffs, frenzied vocal hooks and a stripped down, garage rock sound that has been largely absent from guitar-driven rock for much of the decade. Tracks like ‘Black and Red’ have drawn comparisons to Gary Clark Jr. and the Black Keys, while the band’s live shows have the raw, anything-can-happen energy of early Nirvana or Queens of the Stone Age.”
“Reignwolf’s debut album Hear Me Out is like if Josh Homme joined the Black Keys, or if Buddy Guy wrote for Soundgarden: It’s vicious, unabashedly loud, and carries the swagger of a group very comfortable in what they do.”
– Atwood Magazine
“This is Reignwolf uncompromised, a powerful display of musical evolution which finally captures the explosive kick-drum stomping spontaneity of their performances, and blows open the door on what the future holds…Intimate and explosive, raw yet finely tuned, Hear Me Out brings out the best of Jordan Cook…Reignwolf takes an electrified wrecking ball to the tired, rickety claims that ‘rock n’ roll is dead.'”
“Hear Me Out is fantastic, full of catchy guitar riffs, some psychedelic elements and a great vocal range from Cook.”
“Even so early into 2019, Hear Me Out peers down safely from its spot as one of the best albums of the year…The ten searing songs that make up Hear Me Out are tear-the-sky-to-pieces good…Ferocious rock impacts, blues-steeped melodies, and brutally honest lyrics fuel its many memorable highlights.”
–Pancakes and Whiskey
“Gritty, bluesy and pure rock n roll from the top to its very core…Hear Me Out is everything we expected it to be, and much more. It is vibrant, explosive and heavy hitting. The record is full of raw passion, pure emotion and comes from the soul. Rock n roll album of the year? Absolutely!”
– Insidethe Setlist
“Hear Me Out is a masterpiece. As a matter of fact, every song has something special to bring to the table. The emotion that you feel throughout the entirety of this album is constant. From the vocals all the way to the instrument, the best is given…there are plenty of musical and emotional reasons to sink all teeth into this record.”
– Loud Hailer Magazine
“Hear Me Out was well worth the wait…There’s a vibrancy with these songs that resonates, a garage-rock earnestness that just refuses to be denied or be listened to with the volume turned down. This is rock and roll meant to be heard loud.”
– Rock Cellar Magazine
“Hear Me Out is all-around impressive…The ferocity and tenacity in Reignwolf’s music make them one of the rock bands around today that listeners should keep on their radar.”
