"Hailing from Lorient (western France), DIREWOLVES merge modern hardcore, crust and screamo on their debut EP "Me From Myself, To Banish". Recorded by producer/sound engineer Amaury Sauvé at La Senelle, these six songs find the perfect balance between emotion and heaviness, reminding of bands such as Alpinist, Lewd Acts or Killing The Dream. After a self-released demo last year, the Wolves confirm their huge potential - don't sleep on them!"

Track Name: Growing Defeat
I can read you like a book that I wrote by myself
It tells your whole story within a global decay

Now that I'm up in here,
Everything under control, killing all joy,
Growing defeat, killing your dreams, contemplating
A real demise of the effort that you've ever made,

Of the brightest little glow of will,

Feeling strength leaving your so clever ideas,

No place at the moment for good wishes, no place for no love,

A place for lust in this carcass,
A place for apathy,
A place for weakness,

From which I'll draw my force.

No place for no love
Track Name: Reach this hand
- Is it hope I'm feeling again ?
Something I'm drawing back from memories of a time that feels so distant,
Just like I'm stepping back but it's not like a light I see,
It's like I'm recovering strength,
It's like I can fight the disease, not like a chance, but rather a possibility .
Like a soul that bears no name, like my head out of the water,
Just on the verge of sinking again,

Like a rope thrown down the well above my head
But I can't grab it and now I have to extend my arm,
Reach this hand I've known for long.

- I won't let you sing along, I'll let you sink
Track Name: Diving and struggling
Hey ! What did you expect ?
I'm coming down
Down to chase you out
Wearing an iron shirt
I'm diving here for victory,
Ready to die for it, ready to go mad.

And I cant let you in, no deal can be made,
I'm not stronger than you,

But with a little help,
I'm gonna kick you out.

Now I'm down in here
Everything under control
Killing defeat
Re-birth of joy

Within my dreams, I will find a way to put an end to suffering.
Track Name: Relief
- Now I feel a familiar warmth running in my veins,
An unconditionnal loving presence, it's not an absconding

- Are you so certain ?

- I've got to push myself upright cause
I've been pulled down too far
And now music is feeding me,
A song of victory,
No place for misery,
Happiness is far now,

It's time for ecstasy

Like an exploding sun,
A complete nirvana,

So high I wanna cry,
I've looked for this freedom,
For so long, a perfect bliss would not describe,
Out of society away from the world.

And I'm finally one,
Alone in my head, I cry, I laugh, I cry

- Me again, don't cry in vain,
Your fight is insane,
You no longer feel humane
Will this feeling remain ?
