Detroit rockers Wilson will release their new album, Right To Rise (Razor & Tie), on June 30th.  The band’s second full length album was produced by producer Johnny Andrews (Halestorm, All That Remains, Three Days Grace) in Atlanta, GA.   Listen here to the first song off the album “Hang With The Devil.”

The band recently wrapped a UK/Europe tour with Halestorm and Nothing More and will head out with Nothing More again in North America on May 31st.  Wilson will also have an album release party on Saturday, June 27th at the The Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac, MI (tour dates below).

Chad Nicefield of Wilson explains the new music, “This record is for the people out there who wake up everyday with one thing in mind, to survive. Those who roll up their sleeves and put bread on the table. It’s a record that any man or woman can be proud of because it’s about honest hard work and good times. Right To Rise is OUR record. Not just Wilson’s record, but a record for all of the WILSONS out there.  It rips, sweats, and works its ass off. We couldn’t be any more proud of the rock and roll jackhammer of Fuckery we created on this thing!”

Wilson has come a long way since their bombastic, brash, and ballsy 2013 full-length debut album, Full Blast Fuckery. They emerged on to the scene with a raucous, raw, and righteous rock sound that saw them become a live favorite, while sharing the stage with everybody from Black Label Society and Down to Five Finger Death Punch and Motörhead. Finishing up a touring whirlwind, the group decided to approach the creative process for Right To Rise from a new angle. Previously, Chad and Jason comprised the writing core, but they opened composition to the whole band, splitting sessions between the Motor City and Atlanta with producer and writer Johnny Andrews (Halestorm, Three Days Grace, Sick Puppies). Inspired by the band’s home-town of Detroit, MI, the album is armed with a battering ram of riffs and swaggering grooves, songs like the title track capture that spirit, while tapping into a distinctly “live” energy, offering a tribute to their home and rock music.

The band agrees, “Detroit is a city commonly portrayed as the underdog to most of the world. We were discarded by many when the shit hit the fan, but through hard work, passion, and determination we strive to rise again. ‘Right to Rise,’ though written to mirror our beautiful city is a song that we feel encompasses rock ‘n’ roll in the current climate of the industry. It’s for all the underdogs out there with their sleeves rolled up and their blue jeans on.”

Wilson is Chad Nicefield (vocals), Jason Spencer (guitar), Kyle Landry( guitar), James Lascu (bass), and Matt Puhy (drums).
