“Down Fall The Good Guys”, the classic 1991 second album from reunited U.K. rockers WOLFSBANE — who feature in their ranks former IRON MAIDEN singer Blaze Bayley — has been remastered and re-released via the band’s official webshop. The new version of the LP included two previously unreleased WOLFSBANE songs, “Find A Way” and “Wings Of Desire”. WOLFSBANE guitarist Jase Edwards states, “When I found them on cassette, I was amazed we’d never done a full studio recording of them for release. They were recorded as demos on our Tascamfour-track tape machine in the rehearsal room in the early ’90s and never made it onto the album.”
Formed in 1984 in Tamworth, England, WOLFSBANE signed to Def American Records, and Rick Rubin produced the band’s first album, “Live Fast, Die Fast”, released in 1989. WOLFSBANE‘s second release, an EP titled “All Hell’s Breaking Loose Down”, followed in 1990. “Down Fall The Good Guys” was released in 1991, giving WOLFSBANE its only U.K. chart entry, with the single “Ezy” landing at No. 68.
After Def American dropped WOLFSBANE, the band released a live album, “Massive Noise Injection”, through the Bronze label in 1993. The group’s third studio album, the self-titled “Wolfsbane”, followed in 1994.
On September 9, 2007, WOLFSBANE reformed for a one-off short set at the Rock of Ages festival in Tamworth. This was followed by their first U.K. tour in 13 years, with the band playing five dates as support for the THE WILDHEARTS in December 2007. Their next tour came in December 2009 supporting THE QUIREBOYS on the “A Little Bit of What You Fancy 20th Anniversary Tour”.
WOLFSBANE‘s latest album, “Wolfsbane Save The World”, was released earlier this year.
