Jason Cruz and Howl, the outlaw folk project led by Strung Out vocalist Jason Cruz, has released a new music video for “First Born Son,” from their critically acclaimed new album “Wolves.”
The music video, created by Bonez Dubb Studios and acts as a visually stunning and thought-provoking exploration of the prophetic lyrics of the song, which Cruz says are “in tune with all the crazy shit we are experiencing right now in this country.”
Cruz continues, “This was the first song I wrote for the new album. It took a long time to just get this first step completed. This is one of those songs where I feel the lyrics are very prophetic.”

Jason Cruz and Howl’s new music video for “First Born Son” is a must-watch for fans of the band and anyone who loves great storytelling and haunting melodies. It’s a powerful reminder of the unique vision and artistry that Cruz and his bandmates bring to their music, as the help to lead the charge for the new wave of folk and Americana alongside the likes of labelmates Amigo The Devil and Tejon Street Corner Thieves.
“First Born Son” sets the tone for “Wolves,” which has been hailed as a masterclass in storytelling, blending Americana, folk, and dark psychedelics to create a unique sonic landscape. The album, which is Jason Cruz and Howl’s first release under their new deal with Liars Club, the label formed by Amigo the Devil and Regime Music Group, has been praised for its evocative lyrics, haunting melodies, and genre-defying sound.
Rooted in Americana and dark psychedelic murderfolk, Jason Cruz and Howl’s music has drawn comparisons to the work of Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and Leonard Cohen. The songs on “Wolves” are like late-night television noir, high on mescaline and American promises, shifting gears through genres as they tell stories that are both personal and can expose the dark side that lurks inside the shadows.
