WOLFPAC's origins stem from the Philadelphia area's The BloodHound Gang, the group whose massive-selling independent Dingleberry Haze debut earned them a major label bidding war. After landing a deal with Columbia Records, this wacky troop released Use Your Fingers, which went to sell almost 200,000 copies nationwide. Soon after the album's release, one of the main founding members, Daddy Long Legs, left the BloodHound Gang and went on to form WOLFPAC. Daddy's method of financing his new endeavor's first recording would set the tone for the future. "I robbed graves and sold the bones to occult stores," he explains.
"Somthin Wicked This Way Comes," the result of Daddy Long Legs nocturnal work, was released via Chord Recordings and has since officially sold out of its limited edition 10,000 copies, without the help or confines of a major label. Instead of a million-dollar promotion push, WOLFPAC focused its growth on building a underground following, developed through word-of-mouth, touring, the Internet, and storming the likes of the "Howard Stern Show" eventually making a fan of Stern himself. Aside from winning over the King of All Media, WOLFPAC have several other notches in their belts, sponsorships from Jagermeister, playing the "Gathering of the Juggalos", touring with national acts such as Twiztid, Dope and many more, their music has been featured prominently in the "Shane's World" adult series, and porn star Jenna Jameson as the cover model on both full-lengths. As the name might suggest, WOLFPAC goes beyond mere music. Their shows are highly interactive, with the MC's in the midst of the pit as often as on stage and their fans nearly as vocal as the members.
"Our fans are like our family," Daddy Long Legs says adding "If your the kind of person who can relate to our music your the kind of person who can definitely relate to me!" Once described as the Wu-Tang Clan meets the Misfits on crack, WOLFPAC's unconventional approach has found appeal with fans from all walks of life. "It's very fresh," he says, its all one big dysfunctional family all bound by a common tie, music! After all, isn't that the way music is supposed to be?" Read more on Last.fm.
