Strange Wilds releasing new 7″ on Sub Pop (stream it)
by Bill Pearis
Hailing from Olympia, WA, Strange Wilds make bruising, guttural punk rock: heavy, loud and fast, with dark clouds looming. The band, which includes members of Negative Press, Outlook, and Wreck, released their debut 7" in 2014 and will follow it up with a new three-song 7" next week (1/20) via Sub Pop. They fit in nicely with the label's history, be it METZ or a certain other Washington trio. (The cover art is also a real tip of the hat to Sub Pop's late-'80s years.) Pre-order yours and a stream of the whole Sub Pop 7" makes its premiere in this post and you can listen (along with their first 7") below.
