HOMETOWN SHOW WITH THE DICTATORS AT NYC’S
BOWERY ELECTRIC ON DECEMBER 30
New York, NY (December 20, 2016) – NYC’s own WYLDLIFE is set to bring its bright and brash rock & roll attitude on the road, announcing a run of winter dates. The tour, which spans Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and more major U.S. cities, coincides with the quartet’s new album, Out on Your Block, available via Wicked Cool Records on Jan 20.
On the heels of two self-released albums and fast, loud shows which quickly established them as an East Coast live favorite, this four-piece outift is poised to rock farther and wider with its sophomore LP. The album, which is one of the first releases in Wicked Cool’s new partnership with The Orchard, was recorded in Atlanta on a shoestring budget and recently announced via Facebook Video by Steven Van Zandt, E Street Band guitarist, host of Little Steven’s Underground Garage and proprietor of Wicked Cool Records.
WYLDLIFE’s inspirations run from titans like Jagger, Bowie, Iggy and the Ramones to New York Dolls, The Replacements, The Only Ones and Richard Hell. Their forthcoming LP oozes with the spirit of youth, sex, drugs and partying, helping Dave Feldman (vocals), Sam Allen (guitar), Spencer Alexander (bass) and Stevie Dios(drums) stay true to their charmingly ragged aesthetic and carry the torch for modern glam and garage rock today.
Wicked Cool Records evolved out of “Little Steven” Van Zandt’s weekly syndicated radio show and SiriusXM channel, Little Steven’s Underground Garage. Van Zandt founded the label as a way to further support new rock & roll that wasn’t receiving the recognition it deserved. Among the label’s releases are the new album In Orbit by Kurt Baker Combo plus ten critically acclaimed compilations including Halloween A Go-Go, Christmas A Go-Go and The Coolest Songs In The World Volumes 1-8, featuring music from the Underground Garage. In 2016, Wicked Cool Records began a unique distribution deal and partnership with The Orchard encompassing both the label’s back catalog and all new Wicked Cool releases.
