(COLUMBUS, OH) -- Wolves At The Gate have released a new single, "Counterfeit". The song is currently the first song on Spotify's New Core playlist, is latest single from the band's upcoming, self-produced fourth album Eclipse, due out July 26 via Solid State Records.
"This is a fight song; a song of rebellion," explains vocalist/guitarist Stephen Cobucci. "Countless lies and deceptions are thrown at us every day from the news media, politicians, people who abuse religion, social media, and even our own minds." He continues, "I wanted to write a simple song that could be one of rebellion to be sung whenever we hear these lies."
Wolves At The Gate is a post hardcore band out of Columbus, Ohio. Since 2008, the band's reputation has been built on a foundation of lyrical authenticity and sonic evolution-both easily identifiable in their fourth studio release, Eclipse.
Inspired by the natural phenomenon and its ability to mask light, cast shadows and cause chaos, Eclipse is a multifaceted record telling one major story in a myriad of ways: don't let what's real be hidden by darkness. Where one song feels fast and youthful, the next feels melancholic and foreboding; an apt illustration of the sporadic nature of the human mind. The record is also the band's most lyrically-diverse collection of songs yet, as they express their thoughts on the United States' relationship with racism, radicalism and prejudice in the song "History", the political and religious landscape in "Evil Are The Kings" and "Counterfeit", and more.
Vocalist/guitarist Stephen Cobucci says of the album: We named the record 'Eclipse' because of how well it encapsulated the relationship the light and the dark can have. An eclipse tells you that it's dark, but it takes truth and faith to know that the sun is still shining. All of this revolves around my walk of faith in believing the truths of the gospel message, seeking to help others find hope and peace in the love of God, as well as how to come to grips with various social/political/personal issues.
Alongside Cobucci is Ben Summers (bass), Abishai Collingsworth (drums), Nick Detty (vocals), and the band's newest memberJoey Alarcon (who co-produced alongside Cobucci).
