What started as a vision for a Disney-style musical evolved into something much darker.

New Denver band Lost Walks will release its debut album next week. It's called "Wolf, Woman, Man."

Founding member Andy Thomas, who sings and plays guitar, says he and his wife, singer and accordion player Jen GaNun, wanted to make a musical more in the style of a Disney Broadway show. But a visit to the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide, Colorado took it in a very different direction. Over the length of 10 tracks, an almost gothic story unfolds in a remote mountainous region. 

Colorado music fans may recognize the names on the band's roster. Members of the Lost Walks have played with other notable Denver bands such as Andy Thomas' Dust Heart, Bad Luck City, Tarantella, FaceMan and Strange Americans. 

Thomas and GaNun spoke with Colorado Matters host Nathan Heffel.

Lost Walks' album release party is Nov. 11 at 9 p.m. at Syntax Physic Opera in Denver. Proceeds from the show will go to the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center.
