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.
Being that HXC is a DIY magazine, there’s nothing we love more than DIY-touring. Well, except when a guitarist is intentionally set on fire mid-set. We may love that more.
Beartooth’s string of DIY midwest and southern tour dates began with a blaze last night in Indiana, where Church Tongue lit their guitarist, Chris Sawicki, aflame during one of their songs. Whoever says punk is dead clearly just can’t stand the heat, because this is punk-fucking-rock.
