Glaswegian quartet Three Blind Wolves have announced the release of mini-album 'Sound Of The Storm' via Communion Records on 20th March 2011.
Following a stunning headline set at the Communion 2010 Christmas party, the band signed with the UK's most exciting new independent label (run by Ben Lovett, Ian Grimble and Kev Jones) and their mini album 'Sound Of The Storm' will be the band’s first Communion release.
Having previously seen an ultra limited-edition release on the band's own label in 2010, 'Sound of The Storm' now comes backed by exclusive new track 'Echo On The Night Train'.
As frontman Ross Clark puts it: "When we originally recorded 'Sound of The Storm' the length of the record was determined simply by what we had played well in the studio that week. This original collection of songs were the first Three Blind Wolves songs in their own right and we felt stood together well on their own as our first record.
"'Echo On The Night Train' - the brand new track on the mini-album - is one of our favourite songs to play live but up until recently we haven't managed to do it justice in the studio. This time however we got it down. This extra track is like the long lost cousin of the other tracks on 'Sound of the Storm' and it feels now - with the help of the lovely folks at Communion - that we've returned the song to the pack. I suppose you could say this first record of ours is now walking down the sunny side of the street with the sun in his face, with not a care in the world."
Ross Clark started out as a young singer/songwriter in 2006, playing gigs everywhere and anywhere he could. By 2007 he had teamed up with Jamie Webster who ran the music programme at esteemed Glasgow venue Oran Mor and together they set up their own label, Instinctive Racoon Records, releasing their debut EP ‘Anthems in Clams’ in early 2007 just days after Ross’s 19th birthday.
By 2008, as Ross' songwriting matured, he felt that extra instrumentation was needed to fill out the songs and help carry his "stirring nomadic psalms" (Drowned In Sound) to a wider audience. Friends Kevin MacKay, David Cleary & Fearghas Lyon were recruited and - playing under the name Ross Clark & The Scarfs Go Missing - the four-piece began to slowly build a reputation that saw them securing support slots with an array of touring national bands - Frightened Rabbit, Noah & The Whale and Glasvegas.
As 2009 arrived the dynamic in the band was naturally evolving, Clark was still the dominant songwriter but the other members of the band were now bringing ideas into the studio and driving the band's sound in an array of new directions. A decision was made to change the name and in October 2010 Three Blind Wolves were born.
Since then the band's trajectory has shown no sign of abating. They have completed two headline tours of the UK (most notably selling out shows at Stereo and King Tut’s in Glasgow and Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh), a Radio session for Vic Galloway’s BBC Introducing show, a storming show at Live @ Leeds in The Brudenell Social Club and their career highlight to date, a performance at T in the Park 2010 in-front of 800 wild Scots.
