ASTPAI love to be busy and they're busy with what they love.
Their newest release "DEDICATION" is out now via Bridge Nine Records.
After graduating from High school, Michael entered the real world searching for a way to release his continuing frustrations. He found his release in the form of a Fender Jazzmaster Guitar played loud and fast. He formed the band Wolf-Face and released several underground cassette tapes that quickly gained circulation throughout the United States and abroad. These tapes included the coveted "Self titled" tape, the "Wolf-Face Too" EP, the "She's in heat, but she won't mate with me" tape, and the "Vampires are pussies" collection. These tapes are a rare find these days and some can occasionally be found on Ebay selling for hundreds of dollars. Wolf-Face toured extensively to sold out crowds in dive bars all over the United States and abroad. Due to drug and alcohol issues and generally being burnt out by the changing music scene and the constant barrage of "wolves in sheep's clothing" associated with the music industry wanting to dumb down and bastardize Wolf-Face's abrasive tunes, Michael decided to hang up his guitar to retire in Florida in the mid 1990's.
Today, frustrated by the vapid music bombarding all aspects of the music scene and the absurd romanticizing of werewolves in shitty books and movies, Michael has decided to hit the road again with Wolf-Face. Michael J. has re-released the original Wolf-Face self-titled cassette on digital technology. This can be obtained online for free or you can grab a free CD at a Wolf-Face show. The Wolf-Face line up now consists of Michael J. and his pack mates Rain-Wolf, The Good Wolf, and Wolf-Fart. They are shredding eardrums again and loving every minute of it!
"Keep It Down" marks the beginning of an evolution in We Are The Union's sound and attitude. The band's main goal is to take on the world with fun songs packed with hooks that will stay stuck in our heads for years to come. Combining the catchiness of modern pop-punk with classic punk-ska party vibes, they can hang with just about any crowd and still stand out in the over-saturated rat race.
You'll hear nothing that sounds like expectations from this quartet, just good tunes and good times.
