Shooting guns, setting fires and shaking shacks with half-stacks make for the type of nights that separate the men from the boys and THE WILD! from the other 99% of what some people are calling rock’n’roll these days. Anybody who’s ever been told to turn it down, clean it up or to go home lives inside of what the God Damn Wild Boys are all about. Driven by long, hard nights, the love of playing music, rural roots, and a no-bullshit mentality, THE WILD! play the soundtrack for freedom seeking renegades & real deal rock’n’rollers alike.
Meet THE WILD!
On vocals/lead guitar, DYLAN VILLAIN embodies all of the reckless abandon and good-natured devilish charm that could only be born in a very small backwoods community. Counterbalancing VILLAIN’s snakebite rasp is bassist/vocalist BOOZUS. Beer drinkin’, beard havin’, fly-fishin’ are his favourite past times.
Kickin’ ass & keeping time is drummer REESE LIGHTNING. A beast with beats & everyone’s favourite asshole. You’ll love him! Rounding out THE WILD!’s lineup is “The Kid” on rhythm guitar and backing vocals. Young blood and zero fucks given. What The Kid lacks in age, he makes up in attitude and swagger.
“I feel like for every thousand bands that are out there right now you’ll get maybe ten that believe the things they’re singing about, which is the most important thing to me in any genre,” says VILLAIN. “I don’t give a shit what kind of music you play. If you care about it then really give yourself to that moment. Our fans aren’t stupid and I feel that they’re hungry for things that aren’t so disposable.”
In 2014, the band’s music video for their first single “Road House” went viral on Youtube which led to notable airplay at rock radio in Canada. The song made a big dent at radio for a completely independant band, landing in the TOP 30 rock chart. Later that summer, THE WILD! hit the road playing alongside of bands like Korn, Rise Against, Monster Truck, The Glorious Sons and One Bad Son.
All of this momentum lead to the band signing a deal with eOne Music Canada. The label was so excited about The Wild! that contracts were signed before they’d even had a chance to see the band live. The band’s reputation for being one the best up and coming live acts in Canada had preceded them.
The Lazys formed right back in 2007. Since the boys have built a reputation as one of Australia’s best live acts. With a bunch of Ep’s and live shows under their belt by 2014 the boys released their debut album. 2 singles from the album co written with Ian D’sa (Billy Talent) and produced by GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Biffy Clyro) went top 10 at active rock in Canada. This led to countless tours across the great white north with bands like Billy Talent, Danko Jones, The Headstones and more. With a new Album due 2017 produced by Ian D’sa (Billy Talent) and Eric Ratz (Big Wreck, Dano Jones, Monster Truck) The Lazys will be touring no doubt to a town near you very soon!
