Following up on the success of their single ‘#104‘, Melbourne’s Alpha Wolf have revealed their debut album ‘Mono‘ will be released July 14th via Greyscale Records, pre-orders are now available [Here].

Vocalist Aidan Ellaz explains;

Mono is an audio representation of utter desperation and the illogical mindset of an individual when one goes through traumatic experience. Whether it’s death, loss of love or coming to terms with mortality. Mono means many things to each member. Written in times where the world is easily perceived as black and white. Mono is the emptiness you feel when you are alone in a motel on the highway and your soul is bleeding out on the floor.

The band threw expectant fans a curve ball with the second single off the album ‘Golden Fate; Gut Ache‘, showing a far more melodic and emotionally vulnerable side, while still retaining the relentless musical force they have developed over the years.

Of the singler, guitarist Sabian Lynch says;

Golden Fate; Gut Ache was written as an outlet for myself, about a time where I neglected to be there for a friend at a time of need. It’s about the guilt I’ve felt and lived with since I heard the news of him taking his life. This feeling will always resonate with me and it’s something I felt I needed to pass on, so that we all know to stick by each other at all times.
