The Ghost Wolves - Attitude Problem

The Ghost Wolves from Austin, Texas met in 2011 and have been an inseparable force ever since. To Carley (vocals, one string guitar) and Jonny (drums, vocals, keys) rock n' roll is an intangible spirit, an expression of absolute creative freedom more than a binding genre. The band has toured relentlessly over the last few years, playing nearly 1000 shows in 15 countries together. Their self produced music videos, unforgettable live show and undeniable chemistry has earned them a steadily growing following on multiple continents.

Their second full length album, “TEXA$ PLATINUM” will be released April 21st, 2017 by German rock & roll label Hound Gawd! Records.
