History

The trio met after guitarist Nick Falcon posted ads on the internet and in music shops searching for "musicians interested in forming a band with a sound like The Ramones-meets-Buddy Holly at a Beef-and-Beer. All greasers please apply."[15] Attracting attention from the underground press and steady airplay on specialty radio[16][17] have enabled a frequent touring schedule.

In 2004 their music was licensed for broadcast on the fifteenth season of MTV's popular reality television series The Real World based in Philadelphia.[18]AMC licensed music from the band for broadcast during the network's annual Monsterfest programming during Halloween season in 2007.[19] In 2011 Showtime used The Young Werewolves' music during an episode of Shameless starring William H. Macy.[20]USA Network and Spike TV have also incorporated music from the band in Burn Notice and Blue Mountain State respectively.[21][22]

Their second full-length recording, Cheat The Devil, was released in 2008. Sid Haig is the executive producer and is featured on the cover artwork. He also provides the introductory narration on the track Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde.[23] Their third recording, Sins of The Past.,[24] was released in 2011 and included saxophones.[25] In 2015 VH1 listed The Young Werewolves as a defining band within the Horror Rock genre.[26]
