It’s been a long time since Wolf Alice has been in Denver. Things have changed. There has been a worldwide epidemic and Wolf Alice has released their 3rd album Blue Weekend. Blue Weekend was written during COVID and marks the songwriting evolution of Ellie Rowsell. The album is about love in its myriad forms from discovery, loss, and strength for it and more. Singles include “The Last Man On Earth”, “How Can I Make It Ok?” and “Smile.”
The album was produced by Markus Dravs who has worked with Mumford & Sons and Arcade Fire. Wolf Alice is Ellie Rowsell, Joff Oddie, Joel Amey & Theo Ellis.
Wolf Alice has been to Denver many times playing Globe Hall and the Bluebird. In 2015 they played Lost Lake and brought the house down touring for their first album My Love Is So Cool. This wild night of crowd surfing and an audience singing every word is worth repeating for 2 nights in November.
On Friday June 4, 2021 Wolf Alice released Blue Weekend. They’ve released the singles “No Hard Feelings”, “Smile”, “The Last Man on Earth” and today’s “How Can I Make It Ok?” Wolf Alice also is announcing their North American tour.
Wolf Alice are Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). It has been a decade since the band began as a duo of Ellie Rowsell and Joff Oddie, then later expanding to a four-piece, with Joel Amey and Theo Ellis joining the group. Since then, the band saw their 2015 debut album My Love Is Cool soar to #2 on the UK charts, their sophomore album Visions Of A Life win the 2018 Hyundai Mercury prize, and a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Performance. The band played a massive 187 shows on the Visions Of A Life world tour – including a sold out Alexandra Palace, 2 sold out dates at Brixton Academy, and a set on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.
Wolf Alice announces their newest album Blue Weekend out June 11 on Dirty Hit/RCA Records. Blue Weekend was produced by Markus Dravs.
The single “Last Man On Earth” is about “the arrogance of humans,” singer and guitarist Ellie Roswell said in a statement. “I’d just read Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle and I had written the line ‘Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from god’ in my notes. But then I thought: ‘Uh, your peculiar travel suggestion isn’t a dancing lesson from god, it’s just a travel suggestion! Why does everything need to mean something more?’”
