Metal band plays Rainbow Room

Metalcore band From The Wolves will bring an all ages show to Port Alberni’s Rainbow Room in February.

Metalcore band, From The Wolves, will bring their energetic live set to Port Alberni’s Rainbow Room on Sunday, Feb. 12 for an all ages show.

Hailing from Calgary, From the Wolves will embark on a week-long tour around B.C., teaming up with  six-piece metal band Shark Infested Daughters.

From The Wolves’ newest EP Nightmares, produced by Rob Kukla (Arbitrator) with mixing and mastering done by Sacha Laskow (Every Hour Kills, ex-Divinity), offers three songs with hard-hitting riffs and melodic hooks.

“We needed to put something out and were kind of on a timeline so we picked the three best songs we could, wrote them up and got them recorded,” said From the Wolves’ drummer, Layne Frank.

The band finds inspiration from bands like The Ghost Inside, Parkway Drive, Emmure, Norma Jean and the Acacia Strain.

The band has been together for about two and a half years and have two EP’s, Nightmares and Empty Promises, and one demo entitled 2014.

A From The Wolves live show, Frank said, is very high energy.

“We don’t really stop,” he said. “As soon as we start playing it’s just high energy from there. We like getting as many people involved as we can to make the show that much better.”

The Feb. 12 show will be the band’s second time playing in Port Alberni at the Rainbow Room.

“We’re very excited to come back out,” Frank said.

“I think we’re more excited to play the Island. Last time we were out it was so much fun, so many people came out and had fun.”

Frank said the band are looking forward to playing an all-ages show, something they don’t have the opportunity to do too much in Calgary.

“Out here we don’t get to play many all-ages shows so coming out to B.C. we get to actually broaden our fan base a lot more.”

Tickets will be available at the door and with a price to be announced.
