The Wild! Prove Why They’re the ‘Best in the West’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
If you love old school rock 'n' roll, then the new video from The Wild! (debuting right here at Loudwire) should give you faith that the legends of old aren't the only ones keeping the flags flying.
The AC/DC connection is inescapable as frontman and guitarist Dylan Villain's nasal-toned voice readily draws comparisons to Bon Scott and even though their riffs carry the same ethos as the Australian titans, it's clear from the video that The Wild! aren't just about imitation. They embody what it means to play rock 'n' roll in sound and sight with animated live performances whether it's playing music or just chugging some brews. When two members swap places at the urinal, we get a glimpse of a band that prioritizes fun without losing sight of their true purpose. "Best in the West" is a feel-good, top-down (car or otherwise) rager that should excite any rock fan, new or old.
If you like what you saw in the video, catch their live show this spring and summer as the band embarks on a full Canadian tour, makes a couple U.S. festival stops and shoots over to Europe to support Rose Tattoo. All dates can be found here.
"NICE BOYS DON’T PLAY ROCK ’N’ ROLL... but we do!" exclaims Villain, referencing the Rose Tattoo song, "Nice Boys." "We are absolutely honored to support The Tatts on the European leg of their 'Blood Brothers Tour.' Our band would not exist if it weren’t for bands like Rose Tattoo. Straight up. We have the utmost respect for these guys and cannot wait to play some rock ’n’ roll for all of you this summer in Europe. See you on the road!"
