There aren’t a lot of local bands who’ve made music videos — it’s hard enough to get a recording out, right? Spokane’s own RaisedbyWolves raised the bar last year when they released a video for “Great White Shark.” As I’m sure they intended, the video is absolutely over the top: chock-full of smoking, beer chugging, drug snorting, tons of boobs and screaming. It’s hilarious, but if it’s too strong for your tastes, you’ll probably want to avoid one of the band’s shows. RaisedbyWolves makes in-your-face thrash, packed with testosterone. If you’re looking to throw back some beers and wake up with one hell of a bangover, meet your new favorite band.
