Texas Platinum

Posted by on May 27, 2017

You’re lucky if you can keep up with this hard-working pack. Local blues-rock warriors The Ghost Wolves are constantly on the road, bringing their amped-up riffs and mutilating shreds to ravenous fans around the world. And somehow, somewhere between the high-volume face-melting in Italy, Germany and Switzerland, the dynamic duo was ready for the release of their second album, Texas Platinum.

This is the jet-fueled fuzz that gets you rocking out. Guitarist/vocalist Carley Wolf and drummer/vocalist Jonny Wolf are masters of starting with a slow, searing burn, then turning their infectious energy up to a merciless cyclone, while spinning tales of all the good times had with being bad. Rawr.

Tonight is the night to get your howl on. The Ghost Wolves celebrate Texas Platinum with a release show at Swan Dive, 615 Red River, and they have Teenage Cavegirl, Jamey Simms, and Magic Rockers of Texas on board for the party. Doors open at 9:30 p.m.

Very recommended. Just run wild.
