Winter Wolf Unveil New Track and Announce Debut EP for Academic Punk Records
Harlem band, Winter Wolf, have debuted a new track from their upcoming EP for Academic Punk Records.
With their latest release, “Blue Lights”, the band portrays a theme that paints a picture on the quarrels of crooked police brutality, summer protests, and riots during the height of the 2020 pandemic. The track is the first single off of the band’s upcoming debut EP that is set to be released by Academic Punk Records on July 2nd.
Winter Wolf, once a two-piece now a three-piece band, hailing from NY/NJ began within the mind of Jehiel Winters. The band’s gritty, dark, and fast sound comes from a melting pot of different influences from the shock horror sounds of Screamin Jay Hawkins, to the raw punching range of bands like Motorhead, and the dual vocal dynamics with a fast punk groovy beats reminiscent of Biohazard. Jehiel calls this genre Harlem Rhythm Punk, blending Hardcore Punk, and Rock & Roll, with components of Soul and Gospel.
“Nasty” Nate (Ex-Embrace The Down, MAAFA) joined the band in August 2018 after the departure of the original drummer as a fill-in, but soon remained full-time not long after. Tony $yxx, who originally joined as an announcer, jumped on as a full 2nd vocalist after being given the chance by Jehiel in 2019 at a Skatepark show in Queens.
