Daddy Long Legs and his ever-evolving lineup of merry misfits return with their long-awaited third full-length album, aptly titled “Square Peg Round Hole,” due out August 1st on SugarDaddy Productions, Inc. The latest WOLFPAC album delivers 18 brand new tracks that embody everything that is WOLFPAC – sick and twisted rhymes over slamming production on topics that delve deeply into kinky sex, senseless violence and debauchery so diabolical it could make Charlie Sheen blush and Amanda Bynes call it a night. “Square Peg Round Hole,” the band’s proper follow-up to 2001’s timeless classic, the “Evil Is” LP, offers a variety of hard-hitting tracks featuring lead vocals by emcees Daddy Long Legs and Buddha.
In an age where the music industry as it was less than 10 years ago is all but extinct, independent artists like WOLFPAC have risen from the ashes of the now barely relevant major labels to enjoy the spoils of their hard work and never-say-die attitude. Never depending upon the support of the mainstream music industry machine, WOLFPAC is the quintessential square peg – not fitting neatly into any label or category. Instead, the crew has broken down the walls to bring its diehard fans unforgettable songs and a live show that is one of the most energetic and unpredictable going today.
WOLFPAC’s origins can be traced back to 1996, when the group was founded by Daddy Long Legs, right after he parted ways with the Bloodhound Gang – a highly successful group he started with longtime friend Jimmy Pop. The pair split lead vocals on the Bloodhound Gang’s debut EP, “Dingleberry Haze” (1994, Cheese Factory Records), and on its major label full-length offering, “Use Your Fingers” (1995, Columbia Records). With Bloodhound Gang, Daddy toured with Sugar Ray, Lordz Of Brooklyn, Deftones and 2 Skinnee J’s. A year later, Daddy Long Legs conceptualized and founded WOLFPAC as a brand new project and a perfect creative outlet for the dark and twisted sense of humor that’s very much a part of his lyrical forte.
The group played early shows in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania and surrounding states. They’ve shared bills with Slipknot, Kottonmouth Kings and GWAR. And for many years now, they’ve toured with longtime friends and associates the Insane Clown Posse and Twiztid. Their touring repertoire is not just limited to the States as WOLFPAC as had great success touring both Japan and the UK with sites on conquering the world some time in the near future. In addition to touring with ICP, Twiztid and other Psychopathic Records artists, WOLFPAC has become a staple of the label’s annual Gathering of the Juggalos.
WOLFPAC concerts have been highly controversial – especially to PMRC types who’d like to censor any and all forms of free expression. Shows have been shut down by the authorities a handful of times, and WOLFPAC is constantly raising the bar – over the years incorporating fire, staple guns, masked men patrolling moshpits in riot gear, and strippers to enhance the in-concert experience. They were the only band to be removed from the stage by police at the Chicago Expo of the Extreme. And their appearance on “Opie & Anthony” – the infamous “Black Wednesday Episode” – is quite possibly the only show to ever be banned in the history of satellite radio. The episode featured comedian Jim Norton, a Jagermeister Tap Machine, and the Girls Of WOLFPAC doing things too extreme to pass even the most open-minded and lenient censors.
The release of “Square Peg Round Hole” kicks off a new and exciting era for WOLFPAC, and the entire band is fired up and ready to share the album with its longtime supporters and new fans alike. In addition to its web site, the band can be followed on social media.
