The Wild! Announce "Wild At Heart" LP, New Single
Canadian rock powerhouse THE WILD! have debuted a brand new single today titled "Ready To Roll" exclusively via REVOLVER MAGAZINE. "This is a straight up Wild! song through & through man," says vocalist and lead guitarist Dylan Villain. "To me, it's all about freedom & goin' that extra mile when things need to be done. Whatever it is. Whenever it is. Whether we've been on the road for months playin' shows or you're still on from last night & gotta go to work the next day... Was it worth it? Hell yeah, it was worth it. We're Ready To Roll."
The band is also announcing their all new LP titled Wild At Heart due out February 17, 2017 via Entertainment One (eOne). Villain continues, "This record is a big one for me. All of us, man. I really had to go through some shit to get things right on this one. I can honestly sit here today & tell you that we made the best record we possibly could. I'm proud as hell of it and I can't wait for all of you to hear it. It's everything I wanted it to be." The tracklist and artwork is also available below. Produced by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica, Airbourne, Aerosmith) at Armoury Studios in Vancouver, Wild At Heart will serve as the follow-up to their debut EP GxDxWxB, which stands for "God Damn Wild Boys," that was released in 2015. Wild At Heart will be their first full-length for Entertainment One (eOne). On vocals/lead guitar, DYLAN VILLAIN embodies all of the reckless abandon and good-natured devilish charm that could only be born in a very small backwoods community. Counterbalancing Villain's snakebite rasp is bassist/vocalist BOOZUS. Beer drinkin’, beard havin’, fly-fishin’ are his favorite past times.
Kickin’ ass & keeping time is drummer REESE LIGHTNING. A beast with beats & everyone’s favorite asshole. You’ll love him! Rounding out THE WILD!'s lineup is “THE KID” on rhythm guitar and backing vocals. Young blood and zero fucks given. What The Kid lacks in age, he makes up in attitude and swagger.
“I feel like for every thousand bands that are out there right now you’ll get maybe ten that believe the things they’re singing about, which is the most important thing to me in any genre,” says VILLAIN. “I don’t give a shit what kind of music you play. If you care about it then really give yourself to that moment. Our fans aren’t stupid and I feel that they’re hungry for things that aren’t so disposable.”
The Wild! are wrapping up their North American tour this week, supporting Airbourne. Watch for The Wild! on the road this fall. On October 28th, thee begin a new North American tour in Seattle opening for Buckcherry, and Sebastian Bach. Full listings will be added to The Wild!’s Website.
