CANADIAN TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
LISTEN TO PREVIOUS SINGLE HELLUVA RIDE
Toronto, ON – September 13, 2019 – Canadian rock outlaws, The Wild!, turned up the heat this summer with a new single, Playing With Fire. Released last month, the single is a testament to the band’s dedication to their craft, keeping the flame of their progression alive. Today the group drop the brand-new video for their track, which masterfully translates the bands hard-boiled poetry of the streets into a visually striking aesthetic of noir heroes. Watch the video for Playing With Fire here.
The Wild! also announced their first Canadian Tour in over a year. Spending this summer performing across Europe, taking over stages at European Full Metal Cruise, Wacken Open Air, Sweden Rock, and the UK’s Steelhouse Festival, the band is excited to get back onto home soil and tear it up across the country this fall. The run begins in Vancouver on October 24, wrapping at Ottawa’s House Of Targ on November 16.
"After just coming off the biggest tour of our career in Europe this past year, we can’t help but be reminded of where it all began,” states frontman, Dylan Villain. “What better way to relive those memories than to go back to our roots and play the kinds of clubs in our home country that helped us get here.”
Playing With Fire is The Wild’s! thunderous new single and third collaboration with JUNO-Award winning producer, Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica, Slipknot). Playing With Fire cement a unique signature identity for The Wild!, unapologetically merging blues-based rock, punk and elements of country into one dirty little package.
A road paved by fast times and loose morals on the pursuit of personal freedom gave The Wild! their sound. While always remaining true to their name, it’s their never-say-die attitude that’s proven them to be one of the strongest up and coming rock bands on the market today.
The Wild!’s debut album, GxDxWxB, produced the Active Rock radio hit, Slow Burn, which peaked at Number 5 in Canada while Straight to Hell and What About You? both cracked the Top 20. During this time, the band headlined their own tours and supported Buckcherry, Godsmack, Korn, Rise Against, Wolfmother and more.
In 2017, the band’s second album, Wild At Heart, knocked Metallica out of the Number 2 spot on the iTunes Rock Charts when it debuted. Ready to Roll reached Number 4 at Active Rock in Canada and garnered the attention of legendary rock radio DJ and TV personality Eddie Trunk as he spun the song on his syndicated show broadcasted to nearly 40 American radio stations. The band then announced spots on major US rock festivals Carolina Rebellion and Welcome To Rockville. Both headline and support tours followed alongside the likes of Airbourne, Steel Panther and Rose Tattoo as the band continued to travel across North America before later heading overseas for the first time. On their first tour in Europe, the band sold 600 records in just nine shows. With the demand of their growing fan base overseas, The Wild! would make their way back to Europe two more times that year.
This is a band making their name the old-fashioned way, earning their stripes night after night through hard work on the road. From their home in Canada to stages across America and Europe, The Wild! are here to give rock fans something very real. If you like straightforward, no-bullshit rock and roll, The Wild! is here to deliver.
