WOLVES AT THE GATE are getting into the holiday spirit — albeit in a thoroughly metallic way.
The band will release a holiday EP, titled Lowborn, on November 18 via Solid State. Pre-order it here.
The EP features three previously released tracks, along with two new songs.
To celebrate the release, and ultimately, the season, the band has shared \”Dark Cold Night.\” Listen here.

\”We\’ve always liked the challenge of writing \’Christmas\’ songs that break the norm of what we have come to expect in a song inspired by the holiday,\” the band says. \”There are so many more emotions and sounds that can communicate the heart of what gets lost in the commercialization of what is actually a historic celebration. With \’Dark Cold Night,\’ we enjoyed exploring how the world would perceive the declaration that a messiah would come even though there had been prophetic silence for hundreds of years. Putting ourselves in that perspective gave us a springboard to create a song that we feel is emotive and unique within the Christmas narrative of promise and redemption.\”
The band previously dropped a live EP, dubbed Eulogies (Live Sessions), on September 23, via Solid State Records. It features live renditions from the band\’s fifth album Eulogies, which arrived in March. Get the live EP here.
