Season of Mist is proud to welcome Wilmington, NC’s WILDLIGHTS (formerly named CRUSADES) to its ever-expanding roster. The brainchild of ASG vocalist/guitarist Jason Shi and THUNDERLIP! drummer Johnny Collins, wields a unique brand of heavy, melodic rock that draws inspiration equally from the blues-based, low-end sound of the US South and driving, melodic skate/desert rock pedigree of Southern California.
Regarding the signing, guitarist/vocalist Jason Shi comments ,“Johnny and I are very excited to share the music we have been working on for several years now with the rest of the world. Between touring with our other bands ASG and THUNDERLIP!, we snuck in the time to write what we feel is some exciting new music. It has been nice to create from scratch, and not having a sonic history to be compared to. It’s been a very refreshing writing process! We can’t wait to share the jams!”
Audio samples of an early version of “Onward, Upward” and the track “Anchors” can be streamed here or on the WILDLIGHTS bandcamp page respectively.
WILDLIGHTS is currently writing their forthcoming debut on Season of Mist which will be released in 2014. More information on WILDLIGHTS‘ debut album will be coming shortly and you can follow WILDLIGHTS on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
