Reignwolf will soon be a band with an album.
Debuting back in 2012, Reignwolf’s reign has spanned seven years, and has found the band bringing their fiery blues-rock around the world. Their powerful live show has earned them a devoted following, and scored them multiple appearances at major festivals Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and dates opening for Black Sabbath and Pixies. So, it would certainly come as a surprise that, even with seven years of touring under their belt, all that Reignwolf has officially released is a whopping collection of five singles. As expected, most of their discography consists of unreleased songs that haven’t yet seen the light of day in a studio— most of their songs are debuted live. But, starting March 1st, things will be a lot different for fans of Reignwolf: songs previously exclusive to a live audience will finally be able to reach your ears at home via their debut album, Hear Me Out.
Not one to neglect live performance, the band has also confirmed they’ll be hitting the road again, with a few March dates unveiled for the upcoming release. In the true spirit of Reignwolf, the short seven-city tour is scheduled to kick off in Seattle on release day, and end with a set at Austin’s SXSW (March 14-16), hitting three of the cities where much of the album was written and recorded.
“While it’s been incredible playing shows and having crowds singing along to songs that aren’t even released, I’m excited for people to have something more to hang on to,” frontman Jordan Cook says of the record. With this, he just about confirms that album will be a collection of songs that have already been played live, with maybe a few surprises thrown in. We’re excited too, Jordan.
