Wolves In The Throne Room taking a break

Monday, July 30, 2012 9:01 AM PT


Olympia, Washington ambient/black metal outfit Wolves In The Throne Room have revealed that they won't be particularly active in the coming months. Though the band points out that they have "no intention to end" Wolves In The Throne Room, they are also non-committal on future endeavors. Here's the official word:

"After months of journeying we're settled back into our life at home. Soft, warm breezes, the calls of Ravens and Eagles, the scent of Cedar and Salt Water. The Northwest Summer is a soothing balm to the stresses and strains of the road and the alchemic pressure-cooker of the recording studio. But it has been a great two years for us. We are so proud of Celestial Lineage, and our tours in the United States and Europe were inspiring and full of good experiences. Contrary to sensationalist rumor, we have no desire or intention to end Wolves In The Throne Room. It is very possible that future albums will be recorded. Live performances might transpire. But for now, we are reconnecting to hearth and home. We'd like to extend our heartfelt thank to everyone who has helped and supported us over the years. Playing this music has transformed us as people, and we are blessed to have shared this path with so many other travelers."

this band is pretty gay. anyone else get an email from them asking to play 'alternative spaces' like caves and forests? they carry a fcking generator with them. i assume theyre from portland and that makes sense because that is the most douche filled city in the country

At least they'll have plenty of time now to write overly wordy and pretentious press releases

Did these guys run the statement through some Henry David Thoreau Iphone app to get all those sweet naturalist descriptors?

translated: "we are still poor so we're gonna try this whole get-a-real-job thing."

tremelo picking for an hour straight every night and picking organic bioanarchist tomatoes and cotton has caused arthritis in our delicate gaygy non-frost-bitten hands.

Dear, WITTR
Don't you realize the utter contradictory nature
of repping this forest, anarcho, oogle metal and posting shit on the internet.

Go hop a train.

Dig their music well enough, but band needs to get the fck over themselves. They're farmers with guitars.
