New Zealand based cinematic rock quintet Written By Wolves has released a live video for their new single “Follow Me”. The video takes place at the sold out Bay Dreams Festival in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand, where the band played alongside the likes of Machine Gun Kelly, Suicide Boys, Kehlani and many more.
“Follow Me is all about letting go and living life outside of the prescribed box. It is about what can be achieved when you try and live by your own terms rather than expected societal norms,” says Michael Murphy. “It is an anthem for those that are different and proud to be that way. The video was shot at Written By Wolves biggest show to date and really showcases what it is like to be at a Written By Wolves show…”
With much potential ahead of the band, “Follow Me” follows up on the rocker’s latest effort titled, “To Tell You The Truth”, which has been viewed over 700,000 times in just over two months. Check out the live performance and new single below.

“Weaving myself to the front of the stage the giant pounding drums and grooves that greeted me gave way to poppiest syncopated dance beat that caught me off guard til I was bouncing up and down with the rest of the crowd, syncing myself in unison with front man Michael Murphy – this was not your average rock show, this was something… fresh.
And I was loving it.
Big riffs, powerhouse vocals, epic grooves and a well honed, mainstream vibe, and a live show to bring nearly any house down – Written By Wolves are definitely a band to watch out for.”
– Mark Derricutt, Libel Music
