The Wilderness is the next big band you haven’t heard. However, the fans are talking about their over 400 live shows across the USA and Canada in the last four years alone.
The Wilderness is a sextet based in Kingston that has a massive and mighty sound – a propulsive and potent indie rock fusion that has earned them comparisons to Bruce Springsteen, Mumford & Sons, The National and The Lumineers.
A truly international band composed of a Brit, a Frenchman, two Americans and two Canadians, The Wilderness formed in 2015. With an independently released EP to their credit – Seminary Road (2018) and six singles, “If I Have to Die” (2020) “Pick You Up” (2020), “Virginia Sapphire” (2019), “Fall (Despite What You Do)” (2019), “Dancing In The Dive Bars” (2018), “Hurry Up And Wait” (2018). On Aug. 21, 2020 The Wilderness finally released their long-awaited debut LP Until Tomorrow featuring the singles “Pick You Up”, “If I Have To Die” and “Graveyard” followed by the full-length Live album (Dec. 4, 2020) featuring the new single “Fire & The Wolves”.
The Wilderness has everything it takes to make it big. Simply put, follow this band – not for the fame and glory but for the amazing music and powerful live performance that will remind you of why we listen to music in the first place.
The Wilderness continue to build their fanbase the old fashioned way: through their sound, international touring, work ethic and, frankly, just being really good dudes.
