Folky proggers Wolf People has announced that they will have an indefinite break. In a statement on their Facebook page, the band mentions “the geographical distance between us and increased personal and family obligations” as the main reason for the move.
The band has announced a one-off show at the London location in Oslo before Sunday 12 April. Tickets for the performance are available here.
Wolf People formed in Bedford in 2005, initially as a hip hop outfit, until founders Jack Sharp (guitar) and Tom Watt (drummer) listened to Pentangle’s untitled debut album. They were the first British band signed to the American label Jagjaguwar, for whom they released three studio albums, Steeple (2010), Fain (2013) and Ruins (2016), and the EP collection and single tracks Tidings (2010). . They were nominated for a Progressive Music Award in 2013.
The full statement of the tire is:
“Good news and other news …
The good news is that we will be playing a headline show in Oslo on April 12. More details below.
The other news is that this show will be our last in the near future.
We were busy making a new record and still enjoyed playing and hanging around, but with the geographic distance between us and the increased personal and family commitments, we cannot currently make it work well enough for the band and us public justice, so we made the decision to put things on hold for the time being.
Please come to the show if you are able to help us make it into a party and hand out a suitable sign, we look forward to it. We are happy to say that after 13 years we can continue without hostility and we are very proud of everything we have made and achieved.
None of us has stopped making music, so there will be much more Wolf People output to enjoy in the near future.
Finally, thanks to everyone who has come to visit us over the years, has purchased our records or has been working on our music. Our lifespan is due to the fact that you believed in what we did and that love and encouragement will not be forgotten.
We love you,
Wolf people “
