Rolf Comments On New Running Wild Album "Resilient"

Now things are really moving: while Captain Rock'n'Rolf Kasparek is working full throttle on the final details of his latest Running Wild album, Steamhammer/SPV have already announced the official release date: "Resilient" will be out on October 4th, 2013 in Germany and on October 7th, 2013 in the rest of Europe.

The exact date of the U.S. release will be revealed soon, but the album has definitely been scheduled for release in America this October. "I really love working at the moment and am currently getting down to business on the overdubs. I can hardly wait to present the new material to the many Running Wild fans worldwide," says Rock'n'Rolf.

His followers can look forward to a total of twelve brand-new numbers, ten of which will feature on the regular CD, and two more on the limited edition. The album's opener will be called "Soldiers Of Fortune," and the title track, "The Drift" and "Run Riot" will be three typical Running Wild numbers. The track "Bloody Island" however, with an almost ten minute playing time, will be one of the longest tracks in Running Wild's career to date.

Rolf states: "As a composer, it's of course difficult for me to pigeonhole the new material stylistically, but friends who have heard the demo version of 'Bloody Island' claim that it would have fitted in on Pile Of Skulls."

Rolf explains that "Resilient" is audibly tougher and more compact than its predecessor "Shadowmaker" (reviewed here), clearly enjoying his revived zest: "Shadowmaker happened to come about slightly unexpectedly and spontaneously, even for me. The album has brought back the fun I used to have with Running Wild, and my fans will get to feel this fun when Resilient comes out in October!"
