Less than two years after debut EP "Me From Myself, To Banish," French hardcore/crust outfit Direwolves is releasing first full-length "Aegri Somnia" on March 31st.
The record was mastered at New Alliance East, while the artwork is once again handled by Fortifem. "Aegri Somnia" will be released on gatefold LP and CD via Throatruiner Records, and a video teaser is available below. The record label also comments:
"Formed in 2011 in Lorient, western France, Direwolves rapidly stood out from the pack by combining both the melodic and the heavy aspects of punk hardcore. Their first full-length 'Aegri Somnia' not only follows the path of their EP 'Me From Myself, To Banish' (2012) but also enhances the spectrum of their sound, browsing through a large range of sub-genres while avoiding their respective clichés. Songs such as 'Holy Treason' or 'Face The Facts' show the band at their most vehement, colliding unstoppable drumming with heavily metallic-influenced riffs while the end of the record explores more emotionally-charged post-metallic soundscapes. With their constant will to remain straightforward but diversified, Direwolves deliver eleven highly epic and passionate anthems, condensing everything you could expect from a great hardcore LP in 2014."

Direwolves has announced that the band will release an EP in mid-October via Throatruiner Records. The label comments:
"Hailing from Lorient (western France), the band merges modern hardcore, crust, and screamo on its debut EP 'Me From Myself, To Banish.' Recorded by producer/sound engineer Amaury Sauvé (Birds In Row, As We Draw, Comity…) at La Senelle, these six songs find the perfect balance between emotion and heaviness, reminding of bands such as Alpinist, Lewd Acts or Killing The Dream. The artwork has been designed by Fortifem, and pre-orders will be up on 18th October."
