Entertainment One Music Canada (“eOne”), the country’s leading audio physical and digital distributor, is proud to announce the exclusive Canadian license agreement of BC-based The Wild! for their upcoming “GxDxWxB” album.
We’ve been longtime fans of The Wild!’s live show and music they’re working on in the studio,” said Greg Pappas, General Manager, eOne Music Canada. “We’re more than pleased to be working with the band, their manager Lyle Chausse, with his long-term vision and unflagging integrity.”
“It’s great to be working with the eOne team,” said Lyle Chausse. “We couldn’t be more excited to have eOne Music Canada connect with retailers, as well as music fans, and help grow the bands’ audience.”
The Wild! are making waves in the industry as well, with one of Canada’s rising bands, One Bad Son impressed with their live show. Lead singer Shane Volk says, “The Wild! are easily one of our favourite bands to hit the road with. Not only do they take life offstage to a new level, but their professionalism, energy, and sheer power onstage pushes us to new heights each night. Just what a rock n roll brotherhood should do!!”
The Wild!’s reputation of unspeakable acts of debauchery hasn’t been seen in rock and roll since the days of Guns N Roses and the Sunset Strip. eOne Music’s A&R asked The Wild! after the contract was done if they’d like to go out for dinner and celebrate. He came home Saturday afternoon. All he’ll say is it involved a high-end restaurant to start, Toronto’s Bovine and Cherry Cola’s bars, a stretch limo, a sunrise, and an unbelievable bar tab.
The Wild!, made up of Dylan Villain, Boozus, Pistol Pete and Reese Lightning, will be bringing their blues- drenched, loud-rockin, nasty, precision-played rock across Canada in January with Buckcherry:
January 20 Winnipeg, MB The Oak
January 22 Lloydminster, AB The Kooler
January 23 Edmonton, AB River Cree Casino
January 24 Calgary, AB Deerfoot Casino
January 26 Red Deer, AB Wild Bills.
The Wild!’s ‘Party Till Your Dead’ single will be sent to radio in January 2015 with their “GxDxWxB” debut album out in Spring, 2015. It was produced by Mike Fraser (Aerosmith, Jimmy Page, Dave Ghrohl, Van Halen) at the legendary Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, BC with additional production completed at the city’s Armoury Studios. Fraser says, “This is the best band I’ve come across in a long time. I’m very excited to be working with The Wild! and have them teamed up with eOne! Sounds like a winning combo to me!”
The Wild! accidentally had a top 30 Rock track for “Road House” this past summer, garnering over 72,000 views with a genre-busting video from acclaimed Video Director Stuey Kubrick. Watch the video:
