The Wild Feathers Announce Winter Headline Tour Presented By Filter

The Wild Feathers have announced a winter headline tour presented by Filter. The North American run kicks off January 22nd in Austin, TX, and runs through SXSW. Full tour dates are below; ticket on-sales beginFriday. Saints of Valory and Jamestown Revival will support.

 

This year has been an impressive one for the Nashville five-piece, who released their Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Emmylou Harris)-produced debut album August 13th via Warner Bros Records. They have played well over 200 shows, with Gary Clark Jr, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Dawes, Dwight Yoakam and ZZ Ward,.and more, and stopped at the Austin City Limits festival,  San Francisco’s Outside Lands, Sasquatch and Hangout Festivals, Milwaukee’s Summerfest, Louisville’s Forecastle Festival and Nashville’s Live on the Green. The Wild Feathers performed their acclaimed single “The Ceiling,” which the Minneapolis Star Tribune called “perhaps the most elegantly crafted song of the year” on Jimmy Kimmel LiveConan and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and the track just won the Sirius Spectrum Award for Best Song Discovery.

 

Amazon has selected The Wild Feathers for their “Rising Stars of 2014” campaign, which runs from December 25th to January 31st.  The program features a free download of the band’s new single “Got It Wrong,” which they performed on Rachael Ray December 10th.

 

Critical response to The Wild Feathers has been effusive. Rolling Stone declared the album “something that fans of heartland artists like the Avett Brothers and My Morning Jacket will appreciate while it recalls the magic of Tom Petty and Neil Young,” Relix called it “boisterous and impassioned, reverberating with a raw, live quality,” Baeble Music said, “Electrifying, soul stirring, and utterly reverent rock and roll…they’re The Wild Feathers and they’re pretty much here to kick your ass,” and  the NY Daily News gave the album four stars, declaring “the Feathers have the vulnerability and beauty of the Jayhawks…the chemistry they found has the ‘eureka’ effect of the great American harmony-rock bands, from Buffalo Springfield to Poco.”

THE WILD FEATHERS CONTINUE THEIR SUMMER ON THE ROAD

OUTSIDE LANDS PERFORMANCE JUST ADDED, TOURS WITH ZZ WARD, WILLIE NELSON CONFIRMED

 

SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM OUT AUGUST 13, 2013    

 
 

The Wild Feathers are continuing their touring streak through the summer: they have just been confirmed to play San Francisco’s Outside Lands festival August 11th and Nashville’s Live on the Green September 12th. These additions come on the heels of a tour with Ryan Bingham, dates with Bob Dylan and stops at the Sasquatch and Hangout Festivals, as well as Milwaukee’s Summerfest  and Louisville’s Forecastle Festival. In August the Nashville five-piece will be joining the legendary Willie Nelson for a string of west coast dates, followed by a nationwide run supporting ZZ Ward. Full tour dates are below.

 

This heavy roadwork is in support of the band’s Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Emmylou Harris)-produced self-titled debut album, now out August 13th on Warner Bros Records. First single “The Ceiling” is heading toward the Top 15 at AAA radio, with a strong story building across the country.  Watch the video for the “The Ceiling” here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPkGcKckjao&feature=player_embedded. Their music has been gaining critical attention, as well;Filter described The Wild Feathers as “full of powerful harmonies, country twang, breezy melodies and lots of guitar,” Magnet declared “this group has got the goods,” and American Songwriter said “The Wild Feathers may seem like newcomers, but they’re catching up fast.”

 

During their months on the road, the band has been pulling over at truck stops across the country, playing and shooting some of the songs that have influenced them most. The resulting Truck Stop Covers, which include Levon Helm’s “Got Me A Woman” and The Allman Brothers’ “Ramblin Man” are on www.thewildfeathers.com. A new cover will be posted each week.

  

The Wild Feathers are a truly American band: their music takes elements of the best of rock, country, folk and blues music and reshapes it in a way that is both unique and modern. Ricky Young, Joel King, Taylor Burns, Preston Wimberly and Ben Dumas grew up steeped in music; playing solo gigs, touring with local bands and working at venues. The guys came together in Austin in 2010 through coincidence, mutual friends, and a shared love of the classics: Petty, Cash, The Band, Graham Parsons and Neil Young. Look for them in a town near you.
