After five and a half years of making music under the name Werewolves in Siberia, I’m taking a break. I’ve never done any single project for this long before. I’ve written and recorded more music as Werewolves in Siberia than any other band I was ever in… BY FAR.
There are plenty of contributing factors to this decision that I won’t bore any of you with. It’s just time to step back, take a break and hope I come back rejuvenated.
For now, I’ve released Siamese Zombie for download to the public, a set of 1” buttons and the Jeremy Wheeler werewolf shirt is back up for sale (only printed once a month at this point, so if you order, please don’t expect the shirt right away. You will get it though).
Thank you all for the support over the years. I always said this was a project I was doing for myself but the fact that so many of you ended up liking this weird music I made is amazing.
“There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition; and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge.”

It’s a new year and there hasn’t been a WIS update since releasing The Thing That Goes Bump in the Night last October. While I’ve been quiet, there are some things in the works. A few new songs have been done for The Monster Guys’ podcast (TheMonsterGuys.com) and the 5D Blog’s new YouTube show & podcast (5D-Blog.com). Those will be available for download at some point. However, right on the horizon is a brand new space exploration-themed EP, Exploration: Red Space.
I’ve been big on the idea of doing EPs as “name your own price” on Bandcamp as sort of a thank you to everyone who has supported WIS through the years. This will be no different. These six songs may have a slightly different feel than you’re used to from WIS as they’re definitely more sci-fi in nature than they are horror but I think you’ll all dig it.
There is no definite date scheduled for release. Basically, as soon as the album comes back mastered, it’ll get a few listens to make sure everything is right then it will be available. I’m hoping this will be early this coming week.
As a follow-up to January’s DeathRace 2000-inspired “Transcontinental Road Race”, Werewolves in Siberia is back with two brand new EPs.
The first EP, entitled “Abyss”, takes you to the depths of the unknown with two new synth-driven tracks. Escape the impending apocalypse of the outside world and get lost in the aquatic atmosphere of the Abyss. It hits for free download Friday, April 14 on the official WIS Bandcamp page.
One week later, April 21, the next EP drops. “In Memoriam” will also be available for free download on the Bandcamp page. With themes for the Monster Guys and Bazaar Cast podcasts, songs inspired by Fangoria and Famous Monsters of Filmland magazines and an 80s-style horror hip hop song inspired by the Ghost Brothers tv show, this EP is more of a tribute to some horror icons and up-and-comers in the horror/paranormal realm. Don’t expect anything less than other WIS releases, though. There’s plenty here to sink your teeth into.
The latest WIS release, the rarities collection of The Dregs of Anomination, is now available at the WIS bandcamp page for just $3. This is in addition to being available at Fangoria.com, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and everywhere else you buy your digital download music.
For the rest of the month (March ’16), Damon Bishop’s She-Wolf t-shirt is 25% off with code ‘T25’ under the merch tab on the bandcamp page. Grab yourself one today.
Fangoria Musick has once again teamed up with Werewolves in Siberia to unleash this collection of rarities taken from compilations, soundtracks and songs not used on previous albums. Stream it here and buy it at fangoria.com, iTunes, Amazon, etc.
“THE DREGS OF ABOMINATION blends genres and concepts to create a Frankenstein-esque mash-up of macabre music.” -Fangoria
