Lions In Cages: British rock band Wolf Gang announce split via social media


Pouring one out this morning for London rock band Wolf Gang, who earlier today announced their breakup via social media. The group, led by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Max McElligott (who always gave us some nice “young Patrick Swayze” vibes), had a string of hits earlier this decade after the release of 2011 debut LP Suego Faults. Their follow-up, last year’s Alveron, failed to match the debut’s success.

Here’s word from Wolf Gang:

Dear Friends,

We are very sad to announce our decision to end the band. We’ve had an incredible journey; we’ve been to amazing places and met wonderful people, and all along the way we loved sharing our music with you all, but now it’s time for us to move onto other things. We want to thank each and every one of you who showed us support and enjoyed our music, you have meant a lot to us. We wish you all the best, and thanks again,

Max, James, Gav and Lasse X
