  TURBOWOLF TO RELEASE COVERS EP ON OCTOBER 8th, 'CAPTAIN CAVEMAN' VIDEO OUT NOW
3rd September 2012

turbowolf



Bristolian riff monsters Turbowolf have announced they will be releasing a covers EP on October 8th containing four classic tracks ripped to shreds in the band's signature weirdo style.

The band are coinciding the release with an epic UK headline tour that will take their monstrous riffage to all corners of the nation.

The EP takes a broad range of musical styles and eras, and transforms them into a sound that could only be from the minds of Turbowolf. From a grimed-up 'Somebody To Love' by Jefferson Airplane, to a doomy take on MGMT's 'Electric Feel', the four tracks combine already exceptional song writing with the unparalleled energy and innovation of Turbowolf.

Track listing for the EP, due out on Hassle Records, is as follows:

See Through Head (The Hives)
Electric Feel (MGMT)
Captain Caveman (Lightning Bolt)
Somebody To Love (Jefferson Airplane/The Great Society)

The EP will be released smack in the middle of the band's most ambitious tour to date, a 13-date UK headline road-trip, which will see Turbowolf whipping the country into a frenzy of brain-melting chaos.

The band have provided a taste of what is to come for their fans straight from their Facebook page in the form of a home made video. Check it out here:



After a whole summer of shocking and awing festival crowds across the UK and Europe, including storming sets at Download, Germany's Hurricane/Southside Festivals, and a support slot for Wolfmother at IndigO2. An upcoming slot at Bestival is just another opportunity for them to simultaneously turn and roll new heads.

Be sure to catch the band in their element blowing minds, nailing riffs and causing chaos.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
