Alpha Wolf return with new song ‘Black Mamba’

Last week, the boys in Alpha Wolf announced the next era of the band with new vocalist Lochie Keogh and drummer Mitch Fogarty joining the group and they also left fans with a braille clue teaser for something that was still to come. The clue read Black Mamba” which has now been revealed as the title of the first single to feature their latest additions.

New frontman Lochie revealed he had close ties with the band before he was asked to join, stating:

“I’d always been a fan of Alpha Wolf; but in early 2015 I went from being just a fan to being mates with them. They let me tag along to some of their interstate runs, helping out wherever I could selling merch and lugging gear.”

“Before Mono, when John stepped down from vocals, Sabian originally asked if I would be interested in joining the band, however I was currently focused on a project of my own at the time, as such I was unable to accept; and they went on to release one of my favourite albums to date. Soon after everything transpired at the start of this year, I found myself with a message from Sabian containing a drop box link with a song now titled Black Mamba, once again Sabian offered me the vacant position; I wasn’t going to refuse a second time.”

The latest offering from the band is one of their heaviest songs to date but as founding member/guitarist Sabian Lynch explains, the lyrical content isn’t a reflection of the band’s most recent issues/experiences (as it was written long before any of those “rumours” were about), but more so about the feeling of being betrayed and not knowing who you can turn to:

 “It’s so hard to trust anyone these days, you always find yourself with one eye over your shoulder, continuously on the look out for snakes amongst the grass. While I’m sure there will be assumptions made, the lyrics for this song started a long time ago, and are not directed at any one person in particular; the song is directed at humanity itself.”

In celebration of the new track, the band will play a single launch show on August 3rd in Melbourne before hitting the road with Thy Art Is Murder, Antagonist A.D. and Xile on the Death Dealers Tour across Australia from August 9th.
