Wilson Press Release
Detroit hard rockers, WILSON, fulfill prophesy of their "Right to Rise" and announce UK headline club tour
Having worked and toured their fingers to the bone, Wilson have proved that are more than a novelty act. Their first album, "Full Blast Fuckery", put them on the map. But "Right to Rise" has earned them critical acclaim and global attention.
Now they bring their fuckery back to the UK as headliners, starting in February 2016. It has been nearly a year since this five piece rocked our shores, blowing the British crowds away as openers for Halestorm. I remember their performance at Nottingham Rock City left the fans completely astounded; and the queue for merchandise and the opportunity to meet the guys took over an hour to clear.
With their new album with their new label, Razor & Tie, and having an extensive US tour under their belt (Hard Drive Live Tour with Trivium and Tremonti), this announcement comes as no surprise. Raucous, raw and rowdy, this is a band that you knew from day one would be headlining their own tour.
As much as I loved their debut album, and as entertaining as their antics are, "Right to Rise" is proof positive that Wilson are serious about their music and have the balls to back it up. It has been a long wait for their return, and the guys are super excited to return to the UK.
How excited?! This excited:
Guitarist Jason Spencer informs us; "Hey Europe/UK! While sitting here taking a shit, it hit me exactly HOW exciting this tour is going to be for both you and us! It will be the perfect blend of fuckery, rock n' roll, and all round good times!" Frontman Chad Nicefield echoes the sentiment, saying; "We are beside ourselves with excitement to be bringing our stench back across the pond! This will be our first time ever headlining in your neck of the woods and each show is going to feel like the best Friday night on Earth!!"
