Chad Nicefield of Wilson comments, “Wilson is a band that is here to prove rock n roll is still alive and kicking out the jams, motherfuckers! When we thought about who would be the right label to release this monstrous record we knew that Razor & Tie was the “wham bam, thank you ma’m” home we needed! We share the same hard workin’, nose to the ground, eye to the sky mentality. With our brand spankin’ new crew set to help us take our sweet, sweet fuckery sound to the masses…we can focus on what Wilson was created to do… worldwide devastation.”

“The guys in Wilson want to rule rock and so do we. We are totally psyched that they have chosen to work with us,” adds Razor & Tie co-owner Cliff Chenfeld.

Wilson hails from Detroit, MI and self-released one album Full Blast Fuckery in 2013.  Through grass roots efforts and non-stop touring the band built a loyal following and has toured with such bands as Theory of a Deadman, All That Remains, Gwar, Jason Newsted, He Is Legend, and Sevendust.   They also played a number of festivals in 2014 including Rock On The Range and Louder Than Life, playing both as the only unsigned band. Additionally they rocked the GWAR-B-Q, Earthday Birthday, Common Ground Festival, and WIIL Fest with Rob Zombie. Wilson recently played the main stage at Shiprocked 2015 – see photos here at Loudwire.

Wilson is Chad Nicefield (vocals), Jason Spencer (guitar), Kyle Landry( guitar), James Lascu (bass), and Matt Puhy (drums). The band is managed by Steve Hutton and Nick Trentacost for Uppercut Management and represented for touring for the world by Tim Borror and Bryan Vastano of  The Agency Group and for the UK/Europe by Bex Majors at CAA.

Wilson joins Razor & Tie at an exciting time in the label’s history as R&T finished 2014 as the #2 overall label at Rock Radio and the #1 indie label.  Led by breaking stars The Pretty Reckless, Starset and Attila and established greats All That Remains and The Sword, Razor & Tie is becoming the leading label in rock.  Other recent signings include Crossfaith, Failure Anthem and Sons of Texas.
