Written By Wolves


Written By Wolves are a fresh and progressive, cinematic rock band and one of the most exciting new rock acts to come from New Zealand in recent years.

Having announced themselves on the world stage with their debut release, Secrets in 2019 they then combined with some of the biggest names in Rock Music in 2021 to release The Collab Project, an EP and mental health initiative aimed at giving their fans, friends and followers a platform to talk about their mental health and a reminder that no matter what they are going through they do not have to do it alone. Featuring Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D, Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens, Trenton Woodley of Hands Like Houses and Sydney Rae White of The Wild Things, the EP has received critical acclaim, millions of streams and has delighted fans worldwide.

Renowned for their highly energetic live show, the band have already shared the stage with international heavyweights such as Machine Gun Kelly, Limp Bizkit, Pendulum, Sublime With Rome, Suicidal Tendencies, Hed PE, Falling In Reverse, Escape The Fate, We The Kings, Four Year Strong, Stevie Stone, Kehlani and have recently completed 3 nationwide tours with two of New Zealand’s biggest Rock bands - Devilskin and Blindspott.

They are one of the highest streamed rock bands from New Zealand, having amassed more than 350,000 monthly listeners, 51,000 followers and more than 64 million streams on Spotify and over 119,000 subscribers and 74 million views on YouTube. Previous singles Not Afraid To Die, Genius and Timebombs & Hurricanes have all received Highly Commended Awards in the prestigious International Song Writing Competition. Their latest release, Give ‘Em Hell is currently sitting at number 13 on the SMR Radio Chart for mainstream and active rock in the United States and still climbing.

With the success of their latest single, Give ‘Em Hell, upcoming singles, Misery and Take Me Home, due to be released in the coming months and international tour announcements on the horizon, Written By Wolves have well and truly announced their new era and are back bigger and better than ever.

“Basically, they’re killing it and it is time for the rest of the world to know.” - Kerrang!

“Now, they are ready to take on the world.” - Rock Sound

“With Secrets, Written By Wolves are establishing themselves as one of the best
upcoming bands this year. They deserve all the attention that they will inevitably get from this stellar release.”
- Distorted Sound

“This is big, anthemic, electro-tinged rock.” - HMV

“As up-and-coming bands go, Written By Wolves are one of the most exciting. By not fitting into a tight knit of generic conventions, their music feels fresh and offers something for every listener. There’s no denying that this is a band that’s going to go places, and if ‘Secrets’ is anything to go by as a debut record then 2020 will be the year that Written By Wolves shine.” - Dead Press

Band Members:
Michael Murphy (vocals)
