Detroit hip-hop rock band Wilson (sounds like Sugar Ray) will be in Pittsburgh on June 2nd at Smiling Moose for their tour with Motionless in White and Atreyu. The hilarious five-piece will be on tour in support of their latest full-length album Tasty Nasty, which came out last summer via RED MUSIC. The album was produced by the band and Scott “The Ninja” Stevens (American Authors, Shinedown, Sick Puppies).
Wilson formed in 2010 when the members came together in Detroit, MI. After two previous full-length releases Fullblast Fuckery in 2013 and Right To Rise in 2015, the band is back in 2018 with an all new album, record label, outlook on their career and musical direction. The sonic change came about from frontman Chad Nicefield’s two-month trip to Asia to clear his head and pursue true happiness. The idea was to find constant stimulation based on things he used to fear – traveling without a GPS, surfing in shark-infested waters and more. Tasty Nasty was released this past summer and was produced by the band and Scott “The Ninja” Stevens (Halestorm, Shinedown, Nothing More). The album debuted at #8 on iTunes Rock Album Charts and has over half a million total album streams. Their music has been added to Spotify’s Rock Hard, New Noise, and Riffs playlist. Their track “Spanish Coffee” was added to NPR’s “The Latin Alternative”, who stated “I’m loving that one of the best Latin Rock songs of 2018 came from a band of white Michigan rockers. We dig Wilson’s ‘Spanish Coffee’ ! “. Additionally, Decibel Geek raves that “Summertime Treat” is an,“extremely catchy hook that would fit right alongside any of Katy Perry’s chart toppers.”
