The Tracklisting: 1 ‘Row The Boat’; 2 ‘Mary’s Grave’; 3 ‘Souls Out’; 4 ‘Last Man Standing’; 5 ‘Curtains’; 6 ‘Wishing Well’; 7 ‘Heading For The Shore’; 8 ‘Father I Have Sinned’; 9 ‘Thunder’; 10 ‘Fires Will Burn’; 11 ‘The Shadows Are Lengthening’

The Truth: S.G. WOLFGANG consist of four fiercely keen characters from Milton Keynes with names such as Sean Grant (guitar / vocals), Steve Fiske (guitar / vocals), Phil Andreas (keyboards) and Matt Banham (drums). ‘The Shadows Are Lengthening’ is their debut album and is due out in the autumn of October 5th, along with single track 'Mary's Grave' and alongside the support of CALM, aka the Campaign Against Living Miserably.

‘Souls Out’ was the lead-off single in the summertime, and a tighter, tauter three minutes 13 seconds of tetchy alt.rock you will struggle to encounter this season. Leastways, until you encounter the taut, tight two minutes 31 seconds of sub-gothic pounding that is 'Mary's Grave'. Both tracks set the angst-ridden agenda for 'The Shadows Are Lengthening', and if that album title sounds ominous then Wolfgang singer Sean Grant isn’t about to lighten the load.

“During the writing of the album I was in a very dark place personally," he admits, cautiously. "I was dealing with a lot of inner conflicts within my own life, battling with a depression that I’d struggled with and hidden my whole life...even from myself. The whole album is a box of inner demons, a diary of my internal voices. ‘Souls Out’ in particular is when everything has been stripped back to the bone, but even further than that, to your soul. You’re standing naked, but more than naked there is no body, there is just your consciousness left floating like a tiny cosmos with no material things to cling on to anymore."

Hence the symbiotic and indeed sympathetic hook up with CALM, the charity dedicated to preventing male suicide. In this maddening modern world where the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 is actually men killing themselves - on average there are 12 suicides each day in the UK - CALM provides advice, support and a helpline for troubled souls. CALM’s recent music partnerships with Everything Everything, The Boxer Rebellion and Blur's Graham Coxon would suggest that S.G. Wolfgang are in good company over at www.theCALMzone.net

Simon Gunning, CEO of CALM, is in agreement: “Music allows people to express feelings and emotions that we find hard in everyday life; it inspires and allows all of us to talk about themes that can be difficult to approach and as an organisation that has firm roots in the music community, we’re very proud that S.G. Wolfgang will be using their music to raise the profile of CALM across his audience and beyond.”

On a slightly lighter note last time we heard from S.G. WOLFGANG they were called Sean Grant & The Wolfgang, and they were shivering various timbers in 2016 with the ‘7 Deadly 7’ EP, four tracks of clankingly enthusiastic neo-goth beardyman angst which saw the outfit pithily dubbed “Frank Turner & The Bad Seeds”.

Now our rebranded rock boys have reached deep, deep down into themselves to create the 11 deadly tracks which comprise 'The Shadows Are Lengthening'. Produced by Paul Warriner in Leicester's Seamus Wong Studios and mixed by Paul Gregory (of Lanterns On The Lake) the end result is a rousing, brooding debut album peppered with cranky power chords and creaking hyper-ballads, nodding at the likes of QOTSA, Rocket From The Crypt and The Mission with a cheeky wink along the way to Afghan Whigs.

Never a Dulli moment indeed...
