For the Wolf are ready to Turn on the Dark for HorrorHound Records American dark punk-rock band, For the Wolf, are preparing to release their second album, Turn on the Dark, in March 2014, after signing to HorrorHound Records. Combining a love of horror with stoner metal influences, For the Wolf has a macabre sound that will thrill children of the night and ignite Halloween dancefloors. Following Harley Poe as the second signing to HorrorHound Records, this is the birth of an exciting new era for horror music worldwide. Kristy Emory (vocals) and husband Coby Emory (guitar) proved that blood is thicker than water when the band formed in 2010, alongside Noah Emory (drums, twin brother to Coby), Jeremy Mullis (guitar, brother to Kristy) and Rockey Jackson (bass, lifelong family friend). Bonding over a love of movies like Return of the Living Dead and Night of the Demons, and bands like Black Sabbath and Deftones, For the Wolf has been electrifying fans ever since. 'A Faery's Song' is the first track to be released from Turn on the Dark. Based on English Gothic horror comic-book series, La Belle Dame Sans Merci, created by P M Buchan and Karen Yumi Lusted. Speaking of the origins of A Faery's Song, Kristy Emory from For the Wolf said: 'I grew up in a family made up of pastors and evangelists, but I also grew up a fan of horror. Staying up late watching Tales from the Crypt with my Mom, the horror that I've always gravitated toward has involved that struggle with heaven and hell - the dark and the light. That's what I loved about the comic La Belle Dame Sans Merci, and we tried to channel that struggle in 'A Faery's Song'. On For the Wolf's signing to HorrorHound Records, she said: "HorrorHound has been our favorite magazine for years and we could not be more excited to work with them. Working with people that share our love for horror and art makes the creative process fun and easy. We couldn't have arrived at this point without Joe Whiteford of Harley Poe, who has been incredibly supportive, and introduced us to HorrorHound. This whole experience has been incredible." Sharing her excitement for the release of Turn on the Dark, Kristy said: "My favorite song from Turn on the Dark is 'Electric Babysitters'. It was inspired by Silent Hill and my frustration with the current society. There's a scene in Silent Hill: Revelations where Heather asks Vincent why he doesn't just leave this dark place that he's in, and he says that it's all he knows. That awful concept really resonated for me. There is so much darkness in our world, but we're all becoming too comfortable and apathetic to try to change it. We place so much faith in modern media to tell us what to do and what to think, but they're lying to us to maintain the status quo. I want people that hear 'Electric Babysitters' to wake up and start questioning the lies that are being rammed down our throats." The 14-track Turn on the Dark will be available for the first time on CD and vinyl at HorrorHound Weekend (March 21-23rd) at the Sharonville Convention Centre in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, where the band will meet with fans and introduce themselves to the horror faithful. In celebration of the album release, For the Wolf will also be performing live on stage Saturday, March 22nd, 2014 at HorrorHound Weekend's Night Terrors event.
