Wildling have announced they will join fellow SoCal rock band Young The Giant on their U.S. tour this fall. Their 17 date run kicks off in Burlington, VT, on October 22nd and concludes in Boulder, CO, on November 17th.
Members of Young The Giant happened to be in attendance at Wildling's first show last November and were so captivated by the performance that they invited the new band to join them on their upcoming tour. Tickets are on sale now and going fast with several dates already sold out.
Wildling will release their debut EP December 4th. Recorded at Bob Clearmountain's Apogee Studios in Santa Monica, the self-titled six song EP features the single "Hummingbird," a driving vocal anthem showcasing the band's intuitive songwriting. Recently, the band released a new recording of their haunting version of Neil Young's timeless classic "Heart of Gold" online. Fans can now receive a free download of the track at www.wildlingmusic.com.
To feature their collection of music, the band worked with several producers on their debut EP, including Doug Boehm (French Kicks, Dr. Dog), Caleb Shreve (Phantogram, Bear Hands), Ted Gowans (Tegan & Sara), and Ben Greenspan (Fences).
In addition to "Hummingbird," the EP includes the energetic hip-hop-beat-turned-explosive-double-bass outro of "Anywhere We Are;" the calm but passion-filled urban groove of "We Go All the Way;" the arena-filling gang vocals and anthemic resonation of "Wolves;" the clap-your-hands-and-sing-along sway of "Palindrome;" and the driving, upbeat "Doesn't Really Matter."
