Sunflower Sutra

Truly excited and proud to share this second full track from the forthcoming album 'My name is legion for we are many'.
If you want a copy before the official release date, pre-order here:

"The direct inspiration for 'Sunflower Sutra' is the poem with the same name by Allen Ginsberg, which is in a way the underlying and hidden concept of the album. Being sad and defeated by life, Ginsberg turns optimistic just by the view of some old and dead sunflower. So there’s that light in the darkness, that consoling ingredient that I want to have in the music of Your Life On Hold as well. The old and dusted sunflower standing strong and giving hope in the dead gray shadow: a very inspiring image while writing the new album."

- J Wolf

How sweet is this?

We’re happy to announce a forthcoming gig in B52 Music Club.

We like the B52 Club in Eernegem (B)!
Not just because some great bands played/are paying there (think of Christian Death and Sex Gang Children to name just two), but also because the people of B52 have always been very supportive towards us.
When we didn't have a rehearsal place, we were welcome in the club for some rehearsals. How cool is that?
So we're very happy to announce this great evening on Sunday October 7th where we get to share the stage with German gothic rockers Sweet Ermengarde.
Get ready for a cool evening full of gothic rock.
