Exactly three weeks from today, a new single from The Wolfmen will be with us - July 20 - the second single from the second album, Married to the Eiffel Tower.
You may remember mover, groover, shaker and film-maker Don Letts was the first to pick up on the pop potential of this tune playlisting it on his radio show. July 20 is a peachy, perfect scoop of summer pop - hot like a heatwave and sultry like a summer. Expect The Wolfmen's signature sound and wall of wallop with added Beach Boys style layers, flavours and honeycomb harmonies. A special guest stars involved with this summertime special is The Dandy Warhols Courtney Taylor-Taylor on remixer duties.
July 20 is released on July the 19th and available in five distinctive mixes - a handful of which are now live on The Wolfmen's myspace page - so why not hoof on over and taste-test a selection.
So what's the significance of the date July 20? More on that later. Of the five mixes that will be flying out from the 19th - today we'll fire up the take from long-term Wolfmen collaborator Steve Musters..

Remember how we promised a taste test of The Wolfmen's contribution to Paul Hill's multi-award winning movie Do Elephants Pray?
True to our word, here unwrapped for the first time, is the world exclusive of Nothing Else Matters - a bespoke piece created for Do Elephants Pray's heady, closing moments. It's a track featuring the full Wolfmen line up with Chris doubling up on flute and bass.
As a bonus feature why not beam yourself here - to get inside the mind of director Paul Hills' when he takes a trip to The Wolfmen's lair for the recording session of Nothing Else Matters, and Pete Stevenson's explosive enthusiam for the band goes into overdrive.
