The Fresh & Onlys are back - Announce new album 'Wolf Lie Down' - Hear the title track - Out Aug 25 on Sinderlyn

THE FRESH & ONLYS RETURN WITH NEW ALBUM
WOLF LIE DOWN 
OUT AUGUST 25TH ON SINDERLYN 



After three long years of anticipation, San Francisco's psych-blasted, starry-eyed weirdos The Fresh & Onlys' return with new album, Wolf Lie DownThe opening title track is a searing return to form with chugging full speed rhythms, snotty Wipers wall-of-sound guitar gristle, and the unmistakable midnight croon of singer Tim Cohen. Today Stereogum debuted "Wolf Lie Down" calling it "a righteous summer song".

While Cohen and guitarist/producer Wymond Miles are not the new kids on the scene, Wolf Lie Down strips back the layered feel of the last few records to reveal themselves full of passion, imbued with an uplifting romanticism, and their trademark (if often overlooked) wry sense of humor. Recorded mostly at Miles' home studio, the songs' foundation came to life in the studios of Bay Area analog garage / psych veterans Kelley Stoltz (Electric Duck) and Greg Ashley (Creamery).

Wolf Lie Down builds on the band's literate guitar-pop arcana, seamlessly incorporating their pastoral desert-noir sensibility into Cohen and Miles' dueling damaged art-punk songcraft. While the record is driven and performed predominately by the duo of Miles and Cohen, former members Shayde Sartin and Kyle Gibson lay down their classic rhythmic chug on a few tunes. They also enlisted  original drummer James Kim, as well as touring companion James Barone (Beach House) on drums and some mixing duties. 

This new chapter in the elusive world of The Fresh & Onlys is a triumphant return to form as underground jangle titans. Wolf Lie Down also wears the haunted pastoral vividness of their most recent work. Perhaps ironically, their latest LP in a vast canon of work may be the best introduction to this unapologetic multi-faceted rock 'n' roll band.
