The trio of guitarist Michael Trepanier, bassist Dustin Fennessey and drummer Tim Simmons formed in 2011, following the breakup of Simmons and Trepanier’s band Bury the Sun and Fennessey’s band Portraits for Judith. The first Ire Wolves release, 2014’s The Ascetic, is a concept album about the life of Siddhartha Gautama and his experiences before becoming the Buddha. The hardcore post-metal band is wrapping up work on its sophomore release Heirs.
