WITTR Re-Issuing "Diadem Of 12 Stars"

Pacific Northwest black metal clan Wolves In The Throne Room will proudly re-release 2006's debut album "Diadem Of 12 Stars" through the band's own Artemisia Records in mid-June. This release will precede the band's first East Coast North American dates in five years.

Written almost exclusively in a windowless, black room over the long dark nights of winter 2005, "Diadem Of 12 Stars" was the first official Wolves In The Throne Room release. Re-imagining black metal as an ode to rain storms, wood smoke and the wild energies of the Pacific Northwest, WITTR created a unique melancholic atmosphere.

The "Diadem Of 12 Stars| reissue will be released June 17th on CD, 2xLP, cassette, and all digital formats. Pre-orders are live right here. See the band live on these dates:

9/13/2016 Saint Vitus Bar - Brooklyn, NY

Wolves In The Throne Room Streams Full Album

One week ahead of its looming release date next Tuesday, July 8th you can hear all of "Celestite," the new instrumental LP from Olympia, Washington's Wolves In The Throne Room. Listen to the tracks at NYTimes.com here.

"Celestite" is a fully synth-composed companion to the 2011-released "Celestial Lineage" LP, and is a far cry from the blackened maelstrom Wolves In The Throne Room typically delivers. Produced by Randall Dunn, the instrumental passages on "Celestite" reflect the tracks of its predecessor in a whole new light, with more than forty-five minutes of rich, otherworldly, synthesizer-constructed works which more resemble a sci-fi/horror soundtrack or meditative musical experience.

You can also see Wolves In The Throne Room live on these dates:

7/11/2014 Capital Theatre Backstage - Olympia, WA w/ Nommo Ogo, D A Terence
7/12/2014 Shakedown - Bellingham, WA w/ Nommo Ogo, A God Or Another

New WITTR Album To Contain No Drums Or Vocals

Following the November release of the "BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini" two-track live 12" via Southern Lord, new recordings from Wolves In The Throne Room have been confirmed for a 2014 release.

Following several months of anticipation, the Cascadian black metal clan comprised of brothers Aaron and Nathan Weaver now humbly unveil their impending full-length release, "Celestite." The following press release was issued about the coming album:

"Taking a different approach than their previous LPs, 'Celestite' is a completely newly envisioned, parallel-universe version of Celestial Lineage, the beautifully blackened fourth studio full-length epic Wolves In The Throne Room released via Southern Lord in 2011. Celestite arises with a whole new, ethereal approach. There are no drums and no vocals. Rather, deep, heavy crystalline synthesizer journeying, Eno-inspired analog processing and arcane acoustic instrumentation expand upon dimensions folded within the universe of Celestial Lineage."

WITTR Announces BBC Session Release

On Friday, October 21st, 2011 - one month after releasing fourth studio album "Celestial Lineage" - Wolves In The Throne Room recorded two live tracks at the BBC's Maida Vale studios.

Southern Lord now confirms a special vinyl release of these sessions confirmed to hit later this Fall. The following press release was also issued:

"It seems only fitting that Olympia's earthen black metal expanders, Wolves In The Throne Room, would add their name to the roster of acts who have recorded at the Maida Vale studios, the place where the sounds of contemporary and outstanding artists throughout the last century of popular music have been documented for the ages.

"Wolves In The Throne Room's shadow, cast long and eerie from their campfire of the arcane, eclipses the hordes of black metal clones and drones, hewing raw nuggets of inspired music from rich seams of extreme metal and astral vibrations. 'Prayer of Transformation' and 'Thuja Magus Imperium' are the two tracks recorded on that day, taken from their lauded album Celestial Lineage and spanning two sides of vinyl and twenty minutes.

"Entitled 'BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini,' this session is testament to the band's ability to inspire awe with homespun strands of metaphysical ambiance and painstakingly flexed sinews of metal, and is a must for all fans of the band as well as followers of contemporary metal."

Southern Lord will release "BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini" in North America on November 26th, 2013. The track listing is:

1. Prayer of Transformation
2. Thuja Magus Imperium

Wolves In The Throne Room Comments On Band Status

Following many months of touring throughout 2011 and into 2012 in support of fourth full-length release, "Celestial Lineage," Wolves In The Throne Room this week issue an official statement on the current state of the band as well as some insight on what the future may hold for the brothers Weaver. The group comments:

"After months of journeying we’re settled back into our life at home. Soft, warm breezes, the calls of Ravens and Eagles, the scent of Cedar and Salt Water. The Northwest Summer is a soothing balm to the stresses and strains of the road and the alchemic pressure-cooker of the recording studio. But it has been a great two years for us.

"We are so proud of Celestial Lineage, and our tours in the United States and Europe were inspiring and full of good experiences. Contrary to sensationalist rumor, we have no desire or intention to end Wolves In The Throne Room. It is very possible that future albums will be recorded. Live performances might transpire. But for now, we are reconnecting to hearth and home. More...

Wolves In The Throne Room Plays Helsinki

Wednesday was one of the coldest days we’ve had here in Helsinki this fall, and as people lined up outside to see Wolvserpent and Wolves in the Throne Room; their devotion showed as they patiently queued outside. There was an air of mystery as we filtered into the dark venue, and a feeling of relief when one was able to pass through the doors into the dark blue and amber lit room. Still people kept showing up, and fighting winters approach. Just a few minutes after Wolves in the Throne Room had started, rumors were it had sold out. More...
