Wild Child Album Release Party for "The Runaround" w/ What Made Milwaukee Famous and Holiday Mountain
Wild Child will be releasing their latest album, The Runaround, at ACL Live on Friday, October 11th! Grab a ticket and a copy of the new album for only $20!
With The Runaround, Wild Child worked with Grammy-nominated artist Ben Kweller as producer. Kweller was instrumental in harnessing the band’s youthful energy and bringing out the uniqueness of their music. Wild Child has officially come of age.
The sound on The Runaround isn’t exactly a departure. Wild Child hasn’t lost any of the velvety melodies, storyline drive, or the wry delivery that established them from the start as a band of uncommon character and narrative reach. This dynamic, confident record is simply a natural extension of all of those things. Kweller personally contacted the band upon first hearing Pillow Talk, and soon had the new singles picked. The infectious hooks and fully-realized sound have so far earned the group national exposure, including a feature segment on Last Call with Carson Daly filmed during this year’s SXSW. That same week, Wild Child was named BEST INDIE ACT and BEST FOLK ACT at the annual Austin Music Awards.
