THE WILD FEATHERS BRING BACK CLASSIC SOUTHERN AND CALIFORNIA ROCK ON SELF-TITLED DEBUT
Major label debut to be released Tuesday, August 13, 2013
For immediate release
Warner Brothers Records recording artists The Wild Feathers are about to unleash their powerful self-titled album on an unsuspecting public. The Nashville-based band's Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Emmylou Harris)-produced debut album is slated for release on now out August 13th. In preparation for the albumÃ¢€™s release, the band have become true road warriors playing multiple dates with Ryan Bingham amd Bob Dylan as well as making stops at the Sasquatch Festival and Hangout Festivals. In August The Wild Feathers will be joining the legendary Willie Nelson for a string of west coast dates, followed by a nationwide run supporting ZZ Ward.
The Wild Feathers are already 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." Watch the video for the "The Ceiling" here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPkGcKckjao&feature=player_embedded.
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.
