The band that lives or dies by its live show reputation, Guitar Wolf, are finally returning to Australia to pick up where they left off in 2007 – playing sell out gigs and giving punters THE best rock show. Period.
Their mission is simple; to headline Mere Noise Meltdown in Brisbane, to play 2 shows as part of The Tote’s 30th Anniversary Spectacular in Melbourne , and to wreak havoc with punk rock shows in Sydney, Perth and Adelaide.
“ the majority of new rock and roll actually worth a damn is being produced overseas(not the U.S), Japan exports greasy, ass-kicking rockers like Guitar Wolf. Their "jet rock and roll" sound resembles Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry—if they were both rubbed raw by a belt sander. Why is it that a band from Japan can understand and embrace something as culturally important to America as rock and roll, and execute it better than this country's own inhabitants? We'll take our cues from Guitar Wolf”. – Portland Mercury
”The lead singer crawled off the stage after his set, puked for a couple minutes, and then came back for an encore." – The Dallas Observer
Fuck the Strokes, fuck the Hives and fuck every other slicked out over-hyped rock band on the planet. If you want real rock ‘n’ roll, the kind that makes you wanna run around like a maniac bringing glorious chaos to everything in sight hopped up on booze and dangerous amounts of adrenaline, then Guitar Wolf is your band… clearly on this planet to destroy everything that is un-cool and boring about music these days.”
“Stronger than ever, loud as fuck, Guitar Wolf just wanna rock.” – Punk News.org
