Corey Gloden on vocals was recently named “Best Male Vocalist” in Phoenix New Times Best of 2016. “Spoils Of War”, the debut album from Wyves, is 11 tracks of Rock & Roll. It is an album that is both modern and classic in quality and conviction with great hooks and well thought out lyrics. “Spoils Of War” was released in February of 2016 to a Sold Out Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, Arizona. With constant word of mouth and momentum they have landed sets at McDowell Mountain Music Festival 2016 and Apache Lake Music Festival 2015 and 2016. They have shared the stage in previous projects with acts such as: Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith, Kid Rock, Cheap Trick, Peter Frampton, Rival Sons and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Between the four of them there has been a lot of knowledge gained and miles traveled. They are ready to use that for Wyves, the culmination of experience and a driving passion to create this music.
