DETROIT ROCKERS WILSON TO JOIN HARDDRIVE LIVE TOUR
(NEW YORK, NY) –Detroit rockers Wilson will join headliners Tremonti and Trivium on the 2015 HardDrive Live Tour. The tour is scheduled to kick off in Fort Lauderdale on September 9th and will run through October 20th where it will wrap up in Denver, CO. Tickets are available now at www.harddrivelivetour.com.
Wilson lead singer Chad Nicefield comments, “The men of WILSON are incredibly stoked to be a part of the Hard Drive Live tour with Trivium and Tremonti. It’s an honor for us to share such a legendary bill presented by such a legendary company. With our new record Right To Rise in tow, you can expect the most powerful explosion of FUCKERY to enter your face holes as we bring our heat to the stage every night. Strap yourselves in America, were coming in hot!”
Wilson recently released theirsophomore album, Right To Rise – iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon. The band’s first single “Right To Rise” is impacting Active Rock Radio now. Right To Risewas produced by Johnny Andrews (Halestorm, All That Remains, Three Days Grace) and is a raging engine full of conviction and heart, driven by the fuel of their hometown, Detroit. The songs tread forward with drum pummeling beats and killer leads. The album buckles listeners in on a memorable journey, demanding head banging and fist pumping.
The Detroit Free Pressraves,“Wilson’s new album looks poised to propel the band onto the wider rock radar” and Metal Injection declares Wilson, “sounds like He Is Legend and Andrew W.K. got together and wrote a hooky, riff-stuffed party anthem that demands to be blasted.”
Wilson has come a long way since their bombastic, brash, and ballsy 2013 full-length debut album, Full Blast Fuckery. Through grass roots efforts and non-stop touring the band emerged on to the scene with a raucous, raw, and righteous rock sound that saw them become a live favorite. Bringing the party to their shows, Wilson has shared the stage with everybody from Black Label Society and Down to Five Finger Death Punch and Motörhead. Armed with a battering ram of riffs and swaggering grooves, songs like the title track capture that spirit, while tapping into a distinctly “live” energy, offering a tribute to their home and rock music. Wilson is Chad Nicefield (vocals), Jason Spencer (guitar), Kyle Landry( guitar), James Lascu (bass), and Matt Puhy (drums).
Wilson recently finished touring with Nothing More and Red Sun Rising as well as a run with Crobot (all tour dates below).
