Joyous Wolf is a Rock band from Southern California formed in 2014 by vocalist Nick Reese, guitarist Blake Allard, bassist Greg Braccio, and drummer Robert Sodaro. Reese and Sodaro met on their first day of 6th grade during student orientation. They went to different high schools where Sodaro would go on to befriend Braccio. During that time Reese, by chance, met Allard in the acoustic room at Guitar Center where they would jam CCR’s “Born on the Bayou”. There was an immediate dynamic between the two that ultimately led to an exchange of information. Months later Reese reached out to both Sodaro and Allard with the interest of starting a new project with them. Braccio would soon follow suit.
In the waning months of 2014 early jam sessions would yield the foundation of what Joyous Wolf has become. Fusing together influences ranging from Heavy Metal to Delta Blues, Joyous Wolf creates an expressive, high-energy fingerprint that separates themselves from their contemporaries in the realm of Modern Rock.

Sweden’s classic rock heavyweights SPIRITUAL BEGGARS are currently at work on a new studio album and are targeting a Spring 2013 release via InsideOut Music. The album, their eighth studio offering, will be the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2010 release Return To Zero. Additionally, the band is proud to announce that they will be appearing at the 2013 Roadburn Festival Afterburner, on April 21 in Tillburg, Holland.
“Back in the early ’90s, Roadburn founder Walter Hoeijmakers was one of the very first supporters SPIRITUAL BEGGARS had in Europe,” says bandleader Michael Amott. “His unbridled enthusiasm for our music back then when most people didn’t ‘get it’ meant so much to us. It’s a great feeling to now play his fantastic festival and celebrate the staying power of SPIRITUAL BEGGARS and the Roadburn concept together! We’re releasing a new studio album and celebrating our 20th anniversary as a band in 2013, and I really can’t think of a better way to start the party than at the esteemed Roadburn Festival!”
Since their formation in the early ’90s, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS have been at the forefront of the burgeoning stoner rock scene, raising the benchmark for stoner metal bands around the globe through a succession of much acclaimed albums that redefined the genre. Records like Another Way To Shine, Mantra III, Ad Astra, On Fire and Return To Zero deliver a masterful homage to the rock sensibilities of DEEP PURPLE, RAINBOW, URIAH HEEP and TROUBLE, and also the blistering guitar heroics of Frank Marino and MOUNTAIN’s Leslie West.

Ludwig Witt (Drums | GRAND MAGUS, ex FIREBIRD)
