“Easy Does It” is the new single from modern glam/sleaze rock ‘n’ rollers Wildstreet (set to be released through iTunes on January 24th). Though a Wildstreet III album is a ways off, the band wanted to give the people a taste of what’s in store once that third release does arrive.

I came across this band years ago while browsing Retrospective Records’ site and ordered the debut from there and loved it. The first album was very much inspired by the slick glam metal and Def Leppard sounds. The Wildstreet II E.P. was a bit of a departure that went for a more sleazy & raw sound that was influenced by AC/DC and High ‘n’ Dry.

“Easy Does It” continues Wildstreet’s path down the road of straight up no-frills rock ‘n’ roll. It’s easier to compare the song to Wildstreet II but as much as I liked that E.P., I think “Easy Does It” is even better and it gets me excited for the third release as the band continues to find their own rock ‘n’ roll identity.

If you’ve missed out on this band, track down their first two releases. You won’t be disappointed. Then, make your way to iTunes on 1/24/12 and purchase “Easy Does It” and watch out for the “Easy Does It” music video that will be premiering on January 30th. - metalexcess.com


I am always looking to be entertained whether it´s by film or music so U.S rockers Wildstreet does a fine job in giving us a great party stomper in their new single "Easy does it". The song starts with a talk box riff in the same style as Nazareth´s Hair of the dog and Bon Jovi´s Livin on a prayer, the chorus sounds like it was handwritten for Rocklahoma festival where the band has been playing 3 years in a row. Talk about singalong chorus, fans of Crashdiet and Crazy Lixx will be more than pleased to sink their teeth into "Easy does it" when it comes out on Jan 24th.

Wildstreet’s new video “Easy Does It” is easily one of the hottest clips of 2012. “Easy Does It” is This video is not safe for work, so HRH readers, you may want to view this in your homes. You can purchase “Easy Does It” as an mp3 download from Amazon.com at this link. - Hard Rock Hideout


The band Wildstreet is one of my absolute favorites. They are the complete embodiment of every thing I love about music. Their last EP Wildstreet II Louder Faster is a MUST OWN for any music fan. You can read my review of the EP here.

The band does it again with their latest release Easy Does It. It is high velocity glam that continues where Louder Faster left off. The video is also so amazing. If you look closely, you will be able to see the band members in the video among the strippers, glitter, and sleaze.

2012 just started, but it's going to be hard to top this video. I have already worn my own dick raw watching it 40 times. Oh who am I kidding, it has only taken one viewing because I cum faster than a speeding bullet. - Blogs 'n roses


Wildstreet – Live Review
Posted on July 2, 2011 by rockkandi

I first saw Wildstreet back in 2008 at Rocklahoma on one of the side stages and I was very impressed with them. So when I learned that they were coming to Fort Worth, I had to go check them out again, hoping they would still be as good as the first time I saw them. I went in with high hopes and expectations, and let me tell you, I was not let down! They played at on June 10, 2011 at The Rail Club in Fort Worth, Texas and if you were not there, you missed out on what proved to be a very exciting show. When I saw Wildstreet perform, I was taken away. I felt like I was back at Dallas City Limits, a club back in the 80’s where all the great bands played; back when the bands used to put on a show. Wildstreet had the look- they dressed for stage- the hair, the clothes, they had the vocals, the sound and the energy, moving about the stage running, kicking, jumping. They had the performance, guitars over the head, on the floor, the singer laying on the floor singing, the guys pairing up, tripling up together playing and singing. I had been sitting upstairs watching the bands until Wildstreet started playing, which is when I moved downstairs and to the front of the stage. Wildstreet delivers such a performance that you can’t help but want to be a part of it all.

Another rare and really cool thing was the three guitars playing at the same time! This band has a great full bodied sound, excellent melody, great harmony with fabulous vocal chemistry. Wildstreet is fast, fun and upbeat sleaze rock with a couple of ballads thrown in on their first CD. The band has two CDs, both of which I bought, and at a great price, only $6 each, wow! So definitely get their CDs for yourself and hear their fabulous sound and listen to them over and over like I have. My three favorites are “I wanna get it on” and ‘Hard on You” from their first CD and “Can’t stop the Rock” from their second CD. I love the back-up vocals in “I wanna get it on”, the rich harmonizing vocals in “Hard on You” and the smooth rocking vibe in “Can’t stop the Rock.” But don’t just buy the CDs, definitely go see them live, it’s a show and performance you don’t wanna miss!

There are 5 band members in Wildstreet, all of whom are very friendly and truly appreciative of the people that support them and come to see them. I was so impressed with Wildstreet that I had to go see them again, so I grabbed a friend and we made the 3 hour drive to Oklahoma City to see them. I had told my friend about them and when he saw them, he too was in awe! It felt so good to be thoroughly entertained by a band! You just don’t find this kind of performance personality in bands anymore. When I go see a band, this is what I wanna hear and see! - http://www.rocknrollica.com

We’ll try not to bore you with too much drivel, but fact is WILDSTREET has a sleeper hit on their hands with “Poison Kiss”. Never mind the title or the fact that their name was stolen and mashed up from the 80s bands WILDSIDE and CHERRY STREET! Just trust us when we say, their new single/video is fucking GREAT!

If you like your rock n’ roll with a hint of Bowie/Stones, a taste of Hanoi/Crue and a pinch of Poison/Guns. Then you will fall in LOVE with this track.

It’s pretty evident that the guys in this band could give a fuck what anyone else thinks. And to be blunt, their name sucks donkey balls. But not everyone can name their band Fartbarf and get away with it. Think we’re joking? Go google Fartbarf. They rule too.

Anywho, back to WILDBOYZ, err, we mean WILDSTREET! Let’s be honest with ourselves. Haven’t we all had enough with Five Finger Douchbag and all that “look at me I’m angry and bald” bullshit? Of course we have. Someone at radio make a call here and play this track now. It's great, and your phones will ring.

Let’s face facts folks. Buckcherry are almost as old as LA Guns. It’s time for someone to stand up, take the rock n' roll torch and be proud of a little fashion flavored rock!

The band is on tour all summer in support of their new stuff. Go support them and tell them Metal Sludge sent ya!

The self-titled debut release of New Yorkers WILDSTREET in 2009 received rave reviews around the globe.
Their glorious Def Leppard inspired affair with a hint of sleaze/glam, was one of the great surprises that year.
Now in 2011 WILDSTREET have just released their sophomore effort, a 5-track EP, “Wildstreet II …Faster…Louder”.


This EP is another winner for WILDSTREET.
"Faster…Louder..." is a perfect party 'have a good time' collection of songs.
Their mix of straight ahead non compromising fun hard rock and singalong choruses makes this EP so easy to love.
Hopefully we'll see a full-blown CD release sometime soon. - http://glamnsleaze.forumsmusic.com


I got an email before the holidays that simply said:

"Hey Craig, you know that bluesy Glam sound you have been looking for? Well check these guys out."

That man knew my penchant for all things 80's, he appealed to my Back to the Future side and he certainly knew my musical leanings so I had to check out Wildstreet's second EP entitled Wildstreet II: ...Louder ...Faster. The cover with their '34 Chevy rat rod had me sucked in immediately, but what kind of 80's sound was I going to get judging solely on the cover?

This quick five song EP brings you the best of the 80s and leaves out all the bad shit like AIDS and the Berlin Wall, and for politicos like Ben Sommer, Ronald Reagan. All you get is sing along choruses like Def Leppard, a rhythm section as tight as AC/DC, and enough Motley Crue to help you get your red wings.

The song Poison Kiss sounds so damn familiar to me upon first listen I tried to sing along with it. Of course I only attempted to rhyme key words since I didn't really know the lyrics. Poison Kiss describes my daily routine "Wake up wake up when the sun's down. Get up Get up it's time to come out." The build up to the bombast in this song had me quickly fist pumping like the non-guido I am and wishing I had some fake Snooki bend over in front of me grinding. The song just has that kind of vibe about it, exuding raw sexual emotion on the cusp of chaos. It's stupendous.

Cocked and Ready has a great head bobbing beat laid down by Brian Beck with Ali Hassan adding the bass in your face. But the star for me is the guitars and vocals which are all Eric Jayk's realm of expertise. The blues soaked licks are so typical of the best 80s sound. If I could have sex with those riffs and solos I would awkwardly thrust on top of them for no less than 2 minutes.

You ever think, if I could go back in time I would do things better? Wildsteet's WildstreetII: ...Louder ...Faster is an amazing EP that showcases they get it. There was some terrible schlock in the 80's, but you will not find any of that in Wildstreet's EP. This is a hard-hitting, efficient EP that has made me a fan for life. If you give it the full five songs, you will become a fan for life too. But I will bet you will only need two songs.

Wildstreet will release Wildstreet II: ...Louder ...Faster on January 25. You will be able to get it on iTunes, Amazon, etc, but check their main site for full EP details. In the meantime, check out their Promo video for Cocked and Ready. I defy you to listen to the song below and maintain a seated position. I think it is impossible. - www.blogsnroses.com

Wildstreet debuted in 2009 with one of my favorite albums of that year, so I was very pleased to discover new Wildstreet music was coming in 2011! What I didn’t expect was the shift in sound. The debut was pure Mutt Lange/Def Leppard worship. That’s not a knock. I love the Lange/Leppard sound and Eric Jayk did an amazing job giving us some of the slick pop-metal that I wish Def Leppard would still write.

So what does Wildstreet sound like now? Like a much more loose, raw rock ‘n’ roll band. This EP is a much more stripped down affair with a bluesy hard rock influence that brings to mind High ‘n’ Dry-era Def Leppard or the other band Mutt’s known best for — AC/DC. For as much as the debut set out to out-Leppard Leppard, don’t think that this album strives to be an AC/DC clone. They haven’t decided to become another Airbourne or anything, the glam-metal and sleaze factor is still there… It’s just not as produced and polished as the debut and this was all done purposely in order to match the band’s live performances and Jayk even sat out on playing guitar for this record to help achieve that goal. Jayk & Co. have set out on their own rock ‘n’ roll path this time around, instead of following in the footsteps of their idols, and you can only respect them for that. They aren’t trying to sound like anyone anymore other than a rock band that knows how to have a good time and write catchy tunes.

Credit also goes to producer Kyle Kelso who encouraged the band to take the less-produced route and has helped the band with getting Hollywood to take notice. So far, songs have been licensed out to various television shows: E! Entertainment’s Married To Rock, TBS’ Glory Daze and VH1's upcoming Saddle Ranch. Pretty cool! It’s always great to see your favorite bands grow and gain a bigger audience. I remember coming across a listing for their first album purely by chance at Retrospect Records’ website. I then went to their MySpace page and immediately had to have the album after hearing them. I think the debut went unnoticed by many fans and rock/metal sites so it’s great to see Wildstreet is not only continuing to put out great tunes but are also on their way to getting everything to achieving the success they deserve.

This EP will be available for digital download (iTunes, Amazon, etc.) on January 25th with a physical copy pressing to follow shortly and I’ll happily put down my cash to pick it up. If you missed out on Wildstreet the first time, January 25th is your second chance to check out this great young rock ‘n’ roll band. In the meantime, go back and buy their debut!

New York rockers Wildstreet are about to unleash their second E.P. “Wildstreet II Faster…Louder…” and you better hold on tight because it is going to be one hell of a ride. I am a fan of the band’s self titled debut, but there after hearing the tracks on “Wildstreet II Faster…Louder…” there is no doubt in my mind it is a far superior album compared to the debut. While the Def Leppard influence is still present, it doesn’t overwhelm this album like it did the debut and the songs are heavier, dirtier, and more raw, but still filled with hooks galore and catchy as hell. If songs like “Shake It”, “Poison Kiss”, and “Cocked & Ready” don’t get your heart pumping and feet moving. you should go see the doctor because I’m pretty sure you could be considered legally dead. The band which is made up of Eric Jayk – Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar, Aaron Joos – Guitar, Vocals, Ali Hassan – Bass, Vocals, Brian Beck – Drums are still looking for a replacement for the departed Keith Robert, but once all the pieces are in place you can guarantee these New Yorkers are going to be hitting the road hard and heavy to spread their form of rock n’ roll sleaze from coast to coast and I for one want to be right there on the front row, fist pumping and singing my lungs out from start to finish. - www.hardrocknights.com

“Armed with big choruses, blazing guitar solos, and powerful melodies, WILDSTREET is a sex-fueled rock n roll explosion beckoning the glory days of 80s arena rock." - Twelv Magazine


...They (Dorothy) found the most awesome opening band, Wild Street, who warmed up the crowd in the best possible way. Exceeding beyond expectations, with remnants of Motley Crue in the best of nostalgic ways that rekindled my love of ‘Too Young To Fall In Love’, but in a more intense way that sweeps the rug under your feet way. Each band member brings their unique personality, you’ll never know at what point you’ll get surprised. At one point they even played on their guitars simultaneously onstage while the crowd yelled and applauded in amazement. - Pancakes & Whiskey
