The Wild! still believe in rock n’ roll and after one listen, so will you. The rabblerousing foursome from the Great White North are a perfect mixture of the sound and swagger of rock n’ roll, the passion and heart of the blues, and the smell of punk rock.
A trilogy of white-hot slabs of sex, drugs, and unbridled all out riffage have made The Wild! the undisputed champs of shit-kicking truth. Still Believe in Rock N’ Roll is the Canadian quartet’s third LP with A-list producer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Van Halen), a massive champion of the band from the start. In just a handful of years, The Wild! cracked the Active Rock and iTunes Rock Charts, while logging significant road miles, touring with the likes of Airbourne, Steel Panther, Buckcherry, Godsmack, Korn, Rise Against, Wolfmother, and others. They’ve played major festivals like Carolina Rebellion, Welcome To Rockville, Wacken Open Air, Sweden Rock, and many more. The commitment to perfecting the live show is what elevates the never-say-die songwriting and attitude powering GxDxWxB (2015), Wild At Heart (2017), and most especially, album three. To paraphrase Pure Grain Audio, this band’s sound is what you get when you lock the Delta Blues in a van with little more than bourbon, cheap cigarettes, and classic rock cassettes. The Wild! are lifers on the highway paved by AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, ZZ Top, Motörhead, Cheap Trick, and every blues-based pioneer with heart, authenticity, and a deep commitment to what they do.
