As the band prepares to hit the UK on a short run of tour dates, legendary Sacramento post-hardcore/noise metal act Will Haven has released a new track, “Wings Of Mariposa.”

“Wings Of Mariposa” marks Will Haven’s first new music since their acclaimed 2018 album, Muerte, and is a precursor for their incoming seventh record which is in its final stages of production. The band has been recording with Joe Johnston at Pus Cavern in Sacramento over the past several months and will be released through Minus Head Records in the months ahead.

The “Wings Of Mariposa” single makes its way into the public domain through a new video, directed by David Owen Blackley (Her Name Is Murder Productions), who also directed Will Haven’s recently released Foreign Films II documentary.

Guitarist Jeff Irwin states:

“We’re excited to get some new music out! ‘Wings Of Mariposa’ is a nice little glimpse of what this new record is about. I love this new record and am looking forward to playing most of these songs live! The video was made by our good friend Dave Blackley. He has done a few of our last videos, I love his vision and his edits are awesome. It’s been incredible working with him.”

He continues:

“We are beyond ready to get back to the UK; it’s our second home. We are excited to play Carpe Diem in full, from front to back. We have never done that live before and it’s been fun putting it all together. To be able to play Download is an absolute honour. It’s the one festival we have always wanted to play. We are going to play a few new songs there and some oldies. It should be amazing. I can’t wait to see the WHVN family soon.”

The band hit the UK on a short run of tour dates starting June 8th. The shows will include a special set at London’s Underworld on the 9th where they’ll play their Revelation Records-released third album, Carpe Diem, in its entirety. June 11th will see the band performing at the massive Download Festival.

Tour Dates:

06/08 – The Anvil – Bournemouth
06/09 – The Underworld – London, UK *playing Carpe Diem in full
06/11 – Download Festival – Leicestershire


I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
