About To Live As Wolves:
To Live As Wolves is a post-hardcore band based out of Staten Island, New York that conveys emotion in a heartfelt and aggressive way. With this project, musicians Brandon Roman, Mike Shpunt, Frank Altieri, and Alex Allen come together to channel shared experiences into a sonic beacon of hope.
The band has cultivated a sound and live performance that engages audiences with driving riffs, melodic solos and unique vocal melodies. While the songs are raw and seemingly reckless, the ultimate goal is to reach those in pain. “We don’t care to be huge or adored for our looks or image. To us, it’s about the music and giving back to the scene that helped us all grow as individuals.” Music is everything for this group, and their personal demons only fuel their collective fire.
Through working with producer Kevin Billingslea (Vanna, Cruel Hand), the band successfully released their first EP, The Changing Tide, in 2014. Looking to further evolve, the group returned to Halo Studios where Billingslea produced their follow-up EP. Featuring iconic positive speaker and Vanna frontman Davey Muise and set for release in April 2016, Breakneck Road provides To Live As Wolves plenty of ammunition to become a staple band of their genre.
