Written By Wolves are a fresh and progressive, cinematic rock band and one of the most exciting new rock acts to come from New Zealand in recent years. Having announced themselves on the world stage with their debut release, ‘Secrets’ in 2019 they then combined with some of the biggest names in Rock Music in 2021 to release ‘The Collab Project’, an EP and mental health initiative aimed at giving their fans, friends and followers a platform to talk about their mental health and a reminder that no matter what they are going through they do not have to do it alone. Featuring Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D, Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens, Trenton Woodley of Hands Like Houses and Sydney Rae White of The Wild Things, the EP has received critical acclaim, millions of streams and has delighted fans worldwide.

“As up-and-coming bands go, Written By Wolves are one of the most exciting. By not fitting into a tight knit of generic conventions, their music feels fresh and offers something for every listener. There’s no denying that this is a band that’s going to go places, and if ‘Secrets’ is anything to go by as a debut record then 2020 will be the year that Written By Wolves shine.” – Dead Press
