ALPHA WOLF - unleash new video 'Haunter' + brand-new album 'Half Living Things' is out now



The wait is over, the staggering new era for Aussie metalcore behemoths Alpha Wolf has arrived with the hotly anticipated release of the band's third studio album Half Living Things, officially out now via Greyscale Records and SharpTone Records.

A cornucopia of heaving brutality brewed into sharply-honed moments of melodic brilliance, Half Living Things is a snapshot of everything fans know and love about Alpha Wolf on steroids. Whether unleashing gargantuan party-starters (Bring Back The Noise), neck-snapping breakdowns (Double-Edge Demise), raw, stomping hooks (Whenever You're Ready) or an internet-breaking feature (Sucks 2 Suck Feat. Ice-T), Alpha Wolf harness and heighten their trademark intensity on album #3, crafting the self-produced Half Living Things entirely on their own terms.

Also levelling up today's Alpha Wolf presence, the group have unveiled a brand new video for Haunter; a straight-up heavy masterpiece that balances its hooky chorus with full blown menace, both lyrically and instrumentally.

Never ones to do anything by halves, Alpha Wolf have relentlessly sharpened their trademark intensity over the years, from releasing their critically-acclaimed sophomore album A Quiet Place To Die amid the pandemic in 2020, snagging a #6 spot on the ARIA Charts and a nomination for Best Hard Rock or Heavy Metal Album at the ARIA Awards, to releasing a split EP, The Lost & The Longing, with Welsh rockers Holding Absence in 2022. And, as of 2024, the band now sit armed with the entirety of Half Living Thingsout in the world; a release guaranteed to catapult the Alpha Wolf legacy to even more dizzying heights.

Launching their own curated festival CVLTFEST in 2022, Alpha Wolf also continue to powerfully fly the flag for their own incredible wares as well as the local heavy music scene and exciting international acts, with CVLTFEST returning earlier this year for its second edition to critical acclaim, headlined by Alpha Wolfthemselves alongside friends Emmure, Crossfaith, Ocean Grove and many more.

Ticking off their biggest North American run to date with Motionless in White and tearing up multiple stages as part of the inaugural Knotfest Australia last year, Alpha Wolf kicked off 2024 touring nationally alongside The Amity Affliction, and are now set to embark next week on a massive North American headline run, supported by Emmure, UnityTX and Chamber, before heading to the UK to appear at Download Festival alongside Queens Of The Stone Age, Fall Out Boy, Avenged Sevenfold and more.

Alpha Wolf are also locked and loaded to whip Australia into a frenzy this August, headlining their Half Living Things Australian Tour alongside supports The Devil Wears Prada (USA), Invent Animate (USA) and thrown (SWE), with Melbourne's first show as well as Sydney and Newcastle entirely sold out, new dates in Melbourne and Sydney added, and venue upgrades in Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane due to overwhelming demand.

And before they trek off to North America next week, Alpha Wolf will also be performing an extra-special hometown show this weekend to celebrate the release of Half Living Things, with the Half Living Things Live At Revs show taking place this Saturday 6 April at Revolver Bandroom in Prahran. Supported by SIGNV/S, this is strictly a walk-ups-only event. The event is either $40 entry or $50 entry, with the latter including a clear with red and black splatter Half Living Things vinyl. Doors open at 6pm for what is guaranteed to be a once-in-a-lifetime Alpha Wolf Aussie show.

Alpha Wolf know how far they have come, but it’s what lays ahead of them that’s keeping the band hungry.
