This Wild Life Premiere Video For New Single, Over It, At Alternative Press

Acoustic punk duo This Wild Life premiere their video for Over It at Alternative Press.

This Wild Life’s album Clouded saw phenomenal first week success on the Billboard charts, debuting as the number 1 Top New Artist, number 1 Top Alternative New Artist, number 49 Digital Album, and the number 17 Independent Album.

Clouded has garnered much critical acclaim. According to Alternative Press it is “…outrageously well-written songs, played well with much skill…everything about this one is a winner” with a four point five out of five star review. Absolute Punk calls it “…one of the most impressive debut albums this year” giving it an eight point five out of ten.

This Wild Life is the result of the hard work of the Long Beach friends, Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso. Their journey has been marked by small triumphs, big struggles and countless floor shows, bringing This Wild Life’s heartfelt, melodic and acoustic punk-rock to a bigger audience they’ve earned.

Wounds Release New Video For Dead Road Via Alternative Press

Dublin’s heavy rock music quartet, Wounds, have released a new video for their exhilarating track, Dead Road. The explosive and passionate track, which features Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent fame, transcends their heavy sound into a radio-ready, modern day hit.  The band, who released their debut album Die Young late last year, are set to take on SXSW with multiple not-to-miss performances in Austin, Texas.

Not many bands have been through as much as Wounds in the last two years. From the highs of rave reviews for their debut EP and debut album to the lows and grief of a near death experience that almost took the life of one of their members in a horrific four story fall, Wounds are careening their way to the top with an incredible debut album that has been described as one “…of the most intense debut albums of the year.” (Kerrang!) Wounds are currently featured  in Alternative Press‘ 100 Bands You Need To Know This Year.

“This is the first song I ever had the guts to sing, and it’ll be the last song I’ll ever sing,” says frontman Aiden Coogan. “I think the world will see the emotion attached in the video and the regret and pain of never telling you loved someone while they were still around. It’s a pretty literal song but it’s reality and the one certainty in life is death and I find that fascinating.”

With multiple international tours under their belts and after making a huge splash in Europe, Wounds will take on SXSW for the first time this year.
