"relatable, consistently catchy and unapologetically raw.” —(XPRESS Magazine)—
The Wolfbats are an exciting four piece from Perth’s northern suburbs smashing out gritty melodic punk’n’roll. Heartfelt and raw, they keep it fun with a live explosive energy, “tight precision and a genuine love for the stage” (Wall of Sound).
After bursting out of the starting gates in April 2018, The Wolfbats are “showing Perth punks how it’s done” (Joshua Merriel, Triple J), earning radio play around the country (including Triple J and RTRfm) and sharing the stage with the likes of heavyweights Trophy Eyes, Bodyjar, 28 Days, The Decline, The Flangipanis and Nerdlinger.
The depth of their nostalgic 90’s sound begins with Becky Thomas’ explorative guitar work and alternative tunings. She delivers crunchy riffs and thick chords for Az Graham to layer with his melodic, driving bass lines. His vocal harmonies have an affinity with Elise Hudspith’s commanding vocals and honest, evocative lyrics. Bringing an unrelenting energy to their sound is John Madaffari behind the kit, with a hurricane of powerful drumming.
The Wolfbats “look set to break-out around the country before too long”
