Joyous Wolf sign major label deal with Roadrunner Records label of Atlantic Records
Is real rock n’ roll on its way back? With Led Zeppelin sounding Greta Van Fleet seemingly leading a rock n’ roll revival, Atlantic Records has signed Joyous Wolf via its label Roadrunner Records.
The following is an excerpt from an article in the Los Angeles Times originally posted on March 22, 2018 (with slight edits in square brackets):
“The initial stage in the band’s big break was its performance at the Aftershock Festival. Playing amid the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Nine Inch Nails, Eagles of Death Metal and other famed rock bands, the group got its first taste of a legitimate festival crowd.
[Guitarist Blake] Allard said the performance was surreal.
Also in the crowd was [senior Roadrunner Records vice-president of A&R Dave] Rath, who marveled at the musicality of each member and at [singer Nick] Reese‘s stage presence.
The band inked its deal March 5.
“I had to sit down when they got signed,” [band logistics man Daniel] Golly said. “This is validation of all their efforts — not that they’ve needed anyone’s validation. But, for anybody, it’s what keeps them ticking in some sense, sharing that art with others. I don’t think they would ever stop playing just because nobody was listening.””
