CURRENTLY IN 2018, THEY CONTINUE TO TOUR REGULARLY AND ARE SPENDING THE TIME IN BETWEEN IN THE STUDIO WORKING ON WHAT'S NEXT. DON'T SLEEP ON THIS BAND, SLEEP ON A BED.
Wylder writes rhythmic, haunting and lyrically-driven indie-folk with a penchant for
strange, foreboding storytelling about family and loss.
First formed in Virginia by singer/guitarist Will McCarry, the group quickly grew to
include Lonnie Southall (guitar/mandolin), Mike Pingley (drums), and Jackson Wright
(bass/piano). Wylder’s unique blend of indie-rock and chamber-folk combines the spirit
of alternative rock giants like Arcade Fire and The Shins with the intimate, harmony-
laden sounds of Fleet Foxes and Radical Face.
Their debut album, Rain and Laura, was released in April of 2016, and was met with
enthusiastic reviews from fans and critics alike. They are currently in the midst of
recording their next full-length album.
