Providence, MA’s Salem Wolves has released a new single today entitled “So Desperate.” The anthemic alt-rock tune is out via Tor Johnson Records, and will be featured on the band’s upcoming album, The Psychotron Speak, out in July.

The record is actually a concept album that unearths the story of a down-on-his luck ‘80s-era pro wrestler named The Stranger, who taps into a mysterious power delivered from an unknowable and unthinkable eldritch device capable of bending the world around it and creating distortion, both aural and psychological. Produced by Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane), the album will be celebrated this summer with a wrestling-themed record release party in Providence!

Frontman Gray Bouchard’s shared the following about the new single:

“‘So Desperate’ is about recontextualizing what should be a moment of triumph as something grimy. If you’re ambitious or a dreamer, it’s easy to just focus on the goal, the stage, that moment in the spotlight when all eyes are on you. You tune out the noise, ignore your screaming muscles and tired bones, and march toward victory.”
