[INTERVIEW] The Wild Feathers Discuss Their New LP, Nashville, and What’s Next

wild-feathers-620

We’ve been raving over the rock and roll sound from The Wild Feathers since they released their stellar self-titled debut back in 2013. After almost three straight years on the road, the group returned to their hometown of Nashville to record their follow-up, Lonely is a Lifetime. We sat down with band members Taylor Burns (guitar/vocals), Ricky Young (guitar/vocals), Joel King (bass/vocals), Ben Dumas (drums), during a rare day off to discuss how much their sound has evolved, what they want to achieve next and the craziness of headlining the Ryman Auditorium for the first time on June 25.  Their Ryman debut is impressively sold out, but get to Grimeys early for your chance to see them perform a special in-store on June 23 at 6pm.

The Wild Feathers Perform “Overnight” On ‘Kimmel’ | New LP Drops Friday

The Wild Feathers-2016-620

Coming off their incredibly successful self-titled debut LP in 2013, Nashville’s The Wild Feathers have been road warriors for the past few years, touring in support of the likes of Bob Dylan and Gary Clark Jr.  It’s almost hard to believe that the guys had time to slow down to write a follow up record, yet their sophomore LP, Lonely Is A Lifetime, is set to drop on Friday March 11.  Like the debut, the new record was produced by Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Zac Brown Band, FIDLAR) and mixed by D. Sardy (Oasis, The Rolling Stones, Nine Inch Nails), and has the rockers primed for a breakout 2016.

To celebrate the release, ahead of a lengthy headlining tour, the band stopped by Jimmy Kimmel this week to perform “Overnight” and “Goodbye Song.”  You can head below to watch a live clip of “Overnight,” and keep your ears on the site for more information about a local date.
