The Wolfpack

Album: The Dream Walker (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from the Dream Walker, the album is part of a bigger trans-media project called Poet Anderson The Dream Walker, that also includes a short film, comic books, a graphic novel, videos and animations that all tie in to a central character known as Poet Anderson.
  • Frontman Tom DeLonge: "The song is a bit of a journey in and out of the many teeth of the music business - an industry that can be a sexy girl on one hand, but a vicious axe murderer on the other."
  • A wolfpack is a group of wolves that live, feed, and travel as a family group. During World War II, the term was used for marauding groups of German submarines that patrolled the North Atlantic and preyed upon merchant ships. It has since been used as a word to describe a group of friends that are bound together by loyalty and respect of each other.
