We The Wild, an eclectic post-hardcore band from Portland, OR, released a new video for their single “Ol’ Boy” off their upcoming record From The Cities We Fled just a few weeks ago and we got to chat with them about it! The track has tons of energy and truly offers a unique sound, so watch the video and check out the brief Q&A with vocalist Ben Cline and guitarist and vocalist Miles Davenport below, during which he talks about the hardcore scene in the Northwest, what “Ol’ Boy” and the new record are all about, and why the cabin in the music video is more important than you’d think.
Miss May I have been pretty busy since the beginning of 2015. After being on the road in support of August Burns Red, the Ohio-based quintet has seemingly found time to not only write but also fully record their fifth studio album. Keeping fans up to date on the whole studio process via Instagram, it looks as if the final recordings for their upcoming record have finally been completed. Now it’s off to mixing to get those masters ready for release!
This time around Miss May I opted to go back to producer Joey Sturgis who worked on their first two records, Apologies Are For The Weak and Monument. Sturgis is easily one of the most well respected producers in the scene and best known for his work with The Devil Wears Prada and Asking Alexandria. (His work on AA’s “The Final Episode” is certified gold.)
Fans can expect the new Miss May I record to drop later this year. But, as they wait for some upcoming jams, let’s take it back to one of our favorite Sturgis-produced throwbacks, “Relentless Chaos.” Stay metal, my friends!
