Wolverines, out now on I Surrender Records, was produced and engineered by the band’s drummer Brett “The Ratt” Romnes at The Barber Shop Studios in Lake Hopatcong, NJ and was mixed by Will Yip. Encompassing ten songs full of heart, ferocity, relentless passion and, of course, struggle, Wolverines follows the band’s sophomore album, the acclaimed Avalanche United (2011), and is now available for purchase through I Surrender where vinyl and CD bundles are exclusively being offered. The album is also available for download on iTunes HERE for just $7.99.

To the members of I Am The AvalancheVinnie Caruana (vocals), Brandon Swanson (guitar), Brett “The Ratt” Romnes (drums) and John Oliva (bass) – Wolverines is their most anthemic and cohesive full-length album to date and stands as a fitting body of work to the band’s natural progression. Their self-titled debut record, released in 2005, was the sound of a band finding themselves in the context of their scene that, through their associations, couldn’t help but define them, even if they didn’t want them to. The band’s second album, Avalanche United, was written across a long, drawn-out six-year period, and the uncertainty of their situation during that time pierces that particular record’s constructs.

There were no such problems with Wolverines, however – it’s a powerful record through and through, a complete set of songs that each play a specific and vital part on the album. “I think it’s our most well thought-out and least rushed record,” says Caruana. “Times spent at rock bottom and also feelings of personal triumph have shaped what I feel is the perfect record for us as a band and for our supporters as well.”
