“In a time where our genre has never seemed more lost, we stay the course,” says lead vocalist and guitarist, Dylan Villain. “Some of us still believe in rock and roll music and this album is for those of us that do.”

The Wild! still believe in rock n’ roll and after one listen, so will you. The rebellious foursome from the Great White North are a perfect mixture of rock’n’roll swagger and punk rock attitude. The Canadian quartet’s third album, Still Believe In Rock And Roll was produced by the band’s own Dylan Villain and A-list producer/engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica, Aerosmith), who has been a massive champion of the band from the start.
The Wild! are lifers on the highway paved by the many great bands that came before them with heart, authenticity, and a deep commitment to what they do.
