For your chance to win tickets:
Wolf Alice are Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). The band’s 2015 debut album My Love Is Cool hit No. 2 in the UK charts in June of that year, and No. 12 on the Billboard alternative albums chart in the US. They were nominated for the Mercury prize, Ivor Novello Award, a Brit for Breakthrough Act and Grammy for Best Rock Performance, and took an NME Award for Best Live Band. They crisscrossed the UK, the US, Australia, Japan and Europe on the mother of all two-year tours. Last year Ellie and Theo set up the Bands For Refugees movement, after the horrors of Europe’s migrant crisis and the lack of compassion shown in many quarters shocked them into action.
When Wolf Alice finally came off the road, instead of floundering or foundering, they channelled their restless energy into a forward motion. Regrouping in London, they spent intense weeks in the rehearsal room, working out their experiences in a wealth of new material. With the bones of Visions Of A Life in place, they headed to Los Angeles to turn the songs into an album with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Paramore, Tegan and Sara, Beck, Nine Inch Nails). Tom Elmhirst (David Bowie, Arcade Fire, Adele) mixed the record.
Visions Of A Life is fundamentally a personal album and one of great growth for Wolf Alice. From opener Heavenward – a cloudburst of shoegaze guitar and vaulting vocals – through to the epic, eight-minute closing title track, it’s packed with surprises for those who think they know what Wolf Alice’s shtick is.
Competition closes midnight Wednesday 20th November 2018. The prize is one pair of tickets to each winner only.
