Scenes from The Virgin Wolves' CD Release.

Chase Robbins already had his chance to be a moderately successful musician.

But Robbins, founding member and one-time frontman of the moderately successful Dallas-born metalcore outfit Memphis May Fire, took a pass on that first opportunity, deciding to leave that first band of his just as he and his bandmates were in the process of recording their debut full-length.

For the past three years, though, he's been making up for it. In 2009, he and his wife, Jamieson formed The Virgin Wolves, a grittier, sexier, bluesier five-piece that's become a local favorite thanks to its high-energy live performances.

And, just this past Friday night at Hailey's in Denton, Robbins reached a milestone with The Virgin Wolves that he never reached with Memphis May Fire as he and his new outfit celebrated the release of their debut full-length, Pretty Evil Things.

Like the band's renowned live show, the new album is brash, in-your-face and unapologetic about all of it. Meanwhile, the video for that album''s lead single, “Black Sheep,” portrays the band as a bunch of do-no-good rock stars.

It's an image that might come off somewhat cocky if it weren't, well, at least a little true. That's something the band seems intent on proving each time it takes a stage. And, as the below photos from the great Mike Brooks show, they prove it quite well, actually.
