We had the good fortune of connecting with Wolfblitzer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Wolfblitzer, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
Being humble as artists and connecting with the people. We love connecting with our audience in many ways beyond just the music itself. We love connecting to people from shows to our social media platforms to even avenues like this. At the end of the day we are people just like everyone else. We love music just like everyone at the shows that checks us out do. We are thrilled that anyone is joining us on this journey and checking us out. A beautiful trait of music is its ability to connect people so it’s cool to see when people connect with us just as we connect to them and to countless other people, bands, and artists alike.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We’re a bunch of dudes who are close friends that like to play this rowdy music. We’re not trying to change the world with our music, just trying to have a good time with it. I think the latest thing we are most proud of is recording and releasing our most recent EP “Wolf Gang Slang”. The response to the EP has been really exciting to see. It feels good to see that people are digging it since we really dig how those songs and recordings turned out. We got to where we are at professionally simply by moving forward and trying our best. When doing that you learn a lot and figure out what directions you want to go in and know what and what not to do when it comes to playing music. If we get bummed out about something then we take it as a lesson and take steps to improve/avoid that obstacle in the future. What’s cool with our band is the majority of us have played in bands together since we were all teenagers and we are still playing together after all these years. So throughout all these bands and formats, we started playing indie/emo sort of music to our current band which is what we are now. The music just got more intense as time went on which is pretty cool.
