Fresh from a tour of the Scottish Highlands, including a live session on Gaelic station BBC Rapal, Perthshire alt-rock quartet We Came From Wolves are starting to make waves.

Taken from their self-titled debut album, their latest single, ‘Ruiner’ was released last month via Saraseto Records and to date, they’ve enjoyed attention from BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway, Jim Gellatly, Rock Sound, Big Cheese Magazine and Kerrang!

Live, the four-piece are a force of nature and their blistering shows have led to bookings as far afield as Slovakia, Germany, France, support slots with Frightened Rabbit, The LaFontaines and helped secure a Best Rock / Alternative gong at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards.

Their next gig is at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 23 April as part of new multi-venue festival The Big Discovery Listen at: https://soundcloud.com/wecamefromwolvesmusic

Consisting of brothers Jamie and Mike Struthers plus school friend Jason Irvine, Edinburgh-based trio Monticule are refreshingly different.

They specialise in soulful, blues-influenced rock with a contemporary twist, combining distinctive vocals, intricate slide guitar and jazz drums.

Released late last year, debut single ‘Vultures’ gained radio support from Edith Bowman on BBC Introducing airplay on Amazing Radio plus a live appearance on STV

Latest single ‘Pros and Cons’ was self-produced and released at a sold out hometown show in The Voodoo Rooms last weekend, with support from Adam Thompson of We Were Promised Jetpacks.

See Monticule live on 14 March at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh, 17 March at The Howlin’ Wolf in Glasgow in addition to festival appearances at FyneFest on 10 June and HebCelt on 16 July. Visit: www.monticuleband.com
