According to Radio 1's Bobby Friction,
"The Wolfmen have got pedigree, a full-on pedigree. I've been playing them on Radio 1 but – you know what? – f*** pedigree, they're an amazing band and they're going to take you somewhere else musically…"
Formed in 2005 by Marco Pirroni (Adam & The Ants, Sinead O'Connor) and Chris Constantinou (Jackieonassid, Adam Ant, Annabella Lwin) The Wolfmen have become a critically acclaimed force to be reckoned with.

Their debut album - Modernity Killed Every Night - was released in 2008 and described by Uncut as "Dense stuff… Extraordinarily overstated… an unholy mix…" and by MOJO as "Steeped in the space-age glam boogie of Bowie and T Rex with a bit of Iggy-in-Berlin thrown in… infernally catchy…" Lead track "Cecilie" was A-listed on NME Radio for seven weeks in a row.

The Wolfmen's second album – Married To The Eiffel Tower – was released early 2011 and produced by Courtney-Taylor-Taylor (frontman/songwriter with The Dandy Warhols) and Jacob Portrait (Queens Of The Stone Age, Foo Fighters). The first results of The Wolfmen's second album sessions are previewed with a limited edition single release of Jackie, is it my Birthday", a duet with Sinead O'Connor, which won massive radio support from the likes of Dermot O'Leary (BBC Radio 2), Lauren Laverne (6Music) and a host more.

Alongside their own work, the band is known for some surprising collaborations with artists ranging from Lou Reed to Daler Mehndi, the biggest selling artist Indian in music history. They've also covered Screaming Jay Hawkins' I Put A Spell On You with Primal Scream for an Alexander McQueen catwalk show and co-written a few tracks on Sinead O'Connor's new album.

Support comes from Adam and the Ants tribute act Ligotage.
