Hyped UK act Wolf Gang are in town making their first-ever American appearances, playing a free show tonight (10/13) at Santos Party House with Emil & Friends and The Knocks, and then Thursday (10/14) at Glasslands with Acrylics, Safe and Painted Face.

The alter ego of Max McElligot, Wolf Gang make anthemic, danceable pop that really aims for the rafters. Wolf Gang's debut album, due next month, was produced by Dave Fridman, who I'm pretty sure has an "Epic" knob on his mixing desk. It's been turned to at least 8 for new single "Lions in Cages" which you can download at the top of this post. If you like the Arcade Fire or MGMT (there's a little "Kids" in "Lions") or fellow Brit melodramaticists Monarchy, you might want to make your way to one of Wolf Gang's shows.

A couple Wolf Gang videos and flyers and all dates are after the jump.

I'm willing to be their douchey PR guy is checking this comment section on his cute little Apple laptop and screaming to the other dorks in this band (who are probably still all wearing their sunglasses inside their room) in the other room of their suite at The Bowery Hotel yelling: "Oi, mate ... we got another comment. I told ya mate, these stuuupid, bloody Americans love this dance sheeeeyaate ... you lads are going to be huuuuge.."

umm fuckheads you are all doing it wrong.

they are supposed to get big enough for people to give a fuck before you start knock then down.

Posted by Anonymous | October 13, 2010 2:39 PM

back to back is a good tune. dunno why you morons call it pop/dance, sounds pretty indie to me.

aint music thats gonna change the world or anything, prolly a band that will disappear after a couple album.

but the jackasses who jump on the hate-wagon and only has comments regarding how the band looks are fucking embarrassing.

Posted by Anonymous | October 13, 2010 2:43 PM

^ looks are everything for a band...

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
