The Wilderness' debut .272 was described as "like those neon lights you see at night through the car window as you blaze down the street, adding detail to a world that can otherwise be drab"- Roundletters, 2011

The band has taken an assertively grittier turn, and are working on their new record

Biography

The Wilderness released their debut ep, .272, last year to heaps of critical praise.

NOW Magazine gave it NNNN. The Montreal Mirror wrote "There is loads of promise and plenty of appeal" in the record. Roundletters described the record as "like those neon lights you see at night through the car window as you blaze down the street, adding detail to a world that can otherwise be drab". ChartAttack, Two Way Monologues, Shattered Vinyl and a number of other blogs gave overwhelmingly positive reviews.

After their drummer/synth-player/producer Chris Mason left the band to undergo neck therapy, The Wilderness were forced to redefine themselves. Changing their backline entirely, the sound has fundamentally changed. Labelled as everything from electro rock to shoegaze over the past year, they have now taken an assertively grittier turn.

The new material has been hammered out in a small, foul-smelling rehearsal space with the assistance of numerous tall cans, and post-jam drinking sessions in Geary St. dives. They're currently recording the new record, to be released in the springtime.

Having shared the stage with Freedom or Death, Bravestation, Zeus, The Ruby Spirit, Memphis, Rich Aucoin, Armen at the Bazaar and Modern Superstitions, The Wilderness have maintained their hard-earned reputation as "one of the most dynamic live bands in the city" (TWM).

In a time when a lot of bands worry about getting up early for work more than celebrating their music, The Wilderness press on in defiant and revelrous form.
