The Whywolves are all about having a good time, all the time. They explore their passion for life through an eclectic mix of songs, the first batch of which can be found on their debut EP, Abandoned Complex. The trio came to life on Halloween 2010 with Sam Sperrazza on drums, e on bass, and Endo on guitar – hailing from Bothell, Washington. Endo had been in previous bands with both e and Sam separately, and the time had finally come to combine these forces to produce something extraordinary. The unification exploded with the synergy of three diverse songwriting voices, dazzling command of their instruments, exquisite vocal harmonies, and intense live performances, playing every show as if it were their last.
The Whywolves approach their songcraft from different perspectives, each of the three members having unique musical backgrounds. The result is a broad range of songs that at times showcases their technical prowess, explores both dark and light themes, and evokes a variety of emotions – but they’re always catchy, and they always rock. The Whywolves write personal lyrics about the things that move them as they experience the world, often as a means to cope with the complexities of life – from frustrations with relationships to frustrations with the government, and everything in between. Their first album, Abandoned Complex, contains a running theme of departure, with the songs “1st Exile”, “Compromises”, and “Stratosong” dealing with the disillusionment of being left behind. “Please Water My Garden When I’m Gone” and “The Hedgehog’s Dilemma” both give a nod to anime while also examining the futility of communication and closeness (with blistering lead guitar as icing on the cake).
The Whywolves. Born from the spirit of inquiry… and bloodlust.
Bent on world domination and having fun (in that order). They’ll get you singing and dancing and involve you in the making of merriment and festivities. They also love puppies and kittens. Well, 1/3 of the band likes puppies. 2/3 like kittens.
