Old Wives friend Pete Ngyuen put the artwork together. They had an idea of what they wanted but he took it to a whole new level. Shaun and Ryan have cats and Darren has a dog: and there's your artwork.
Pete also had Ryan hand write out the lyrics for each song. They were originally going to use them as the actual liner notes but Pete changed it and came up with a killer back cover to the record.
The album is titled Three for a few reasons, but mostly because this is their first release as a three piece. That number follows into the first track on the album as well. As significant as it is to Old Wives, they hope it has, the more widespread appeal and that people can find little bits of themselves in the songs.
The album sees the band take their music to a whole new level - not only their first release as a three-piece but really a testament of their love of music. The songs are fast, catchy, and relatable.
To say that Three is an anticipated album in 2017 would be an understatement; the band had been working on this album since 2015. Finally content with the finished product, the guys surrounded themselves with the best - signing on with Little Rocket Records in 2016.
This year is shaping up to be a great year for Old Wives, as they will hit the road to support Three starting in May. The tour starts across Canada including a date in Montreal for Pouzza VII Fest and then takes the guys on to Europe for 3 weeks.
Old Wives are fired up and ready to get this new album in the ears of their friends and fans - see you on the road.

May 5 - Edmonton - The Needle (Release Show) May 12 - Winnipeg - The Windsor May 14 - Sault Ste Marie – The New American May 15 - Oshawa - The Atria May 16 - Toronto – The Bovine Sex Club
