By on Monday, 22nd September 2014 at 11:00 am

Wolf Gang are currently in the midst of an American co-headlining tour with Los Angeles indie electro pop soulsters Sir Sly. Despite being busy with performing and all that travelling around this too darn massive country of ours, frontman Max McElligott was kind enough to answer our TGTF Quickfire Questions. And away we go…
