Few songs have the immediate spark of Wolf Gang's latest "Lay Your Love Down." Due out September 2, the track opens with a dramatic guitar hook doubled by piano, singer Max McElligott muses (with impressive range) over a faltering relationship: "I beat myself up with these thoughts, these regrets, these question marks." The track will be part of the band's sophomore LP on Cherrytree Records, which follows 2011's hook-filled Suego Faults. Cherrytree is also creating a tour bundle including a show ticket, meet-and-greet, early album pre-order, and a tour poster for fans.
