The first track, ‘Little Thing Gone Wild’, is available as an instant free download with pre-orders of the album. The album title is inspired by a lyric from the single: “Lord you hear me loud into my soul speaker, why won’t you let me out, you’ve got the wrong creature”.


‘Wrong Creatures’ has been more than two years in the making as the band - Peter Hayes (vocal, guitar, harmonica), Robert Levon Been (vocal, bass, guitar) and Leah Shapiro (drums) – started work on it in the summer of 2015.  They had just finished the touring cycle for their last album, ‘Specter At The Feast’, and Shapiro had undergone life-saving brain surgery for Chiari Malformation, a rare disorder the restricts the flow of spinal fluid between the brain and spine .


“It’s a crazy making machine, it can chew you up good, I mean we literally toured ‘till the wheels came off and Leah’s brain literally started leaking out of her head” says Been.


“I know I’ve battled on and off with mental depression, and Pete’s head never came with any proper instructions.”


“I find myself writing about death a lot,” says Hayes.


“I find myself having a discussion with death, which sounds dark. For me, it's dark humour.”

Adds Been:


“We are truly an island – come hell or high water, so it’s usually best to dress accordingly. Though I’m not sure what the proper attire is when drowning in fire. But leather usually goes with everything.”
