Originally comprised of four small–town Saskatchewan childhood friends, League of Wolves (Dillon Currie, Ethan Stork, Aspen Beveridge, and Greig Beveridge) have joined forces with four–time JUNO award winner Leot Hanson, former lead guitarist of The Sheepdogs.
After less than a year since their debut self–titled album release, League of Wolves has unveiled this new collaborative EP titled Like It Should Be.
League of Wolves have been compared to some of their influences such as Kings of Leon,, Tame Impala, and Queens of the Stone Age. Hanson’s wealth of experience and writing style brings a fresh new sound to the band, with recent inspiration from bands such as My Morning Jacket and Eagles of Death Metal.
“With this EP, and in collaborating with Leot, our songwriting took a different direction. Now it feels like the sound and direction of the band is more like we wanted it to be all along… exactly like it should be.” – Aspen Beveridge – songwriter, guitarist, vocals, engineer
Once again the band recorded in a previously abandoned country school in the middle of nowhere, Piapot SK. Due to a series of fortunate events, each song was mixed by Grammy–winner Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse) and mastered by Grammy-winner Richard Dodd (Dixie Chicks, Tom Petty).
The first single, You’re Killin’ Me, is about temptation and submitting to darker urges. It was inspired by experiences the band has had out on the road.
