I had the chance to speak with Chad the lead singer from Wilson while in route to Florida before the start of their fall tour with Trivium & Tremonti (Hear interview with Mark Tremonti )
The band has recently released their follow up album to Full Black Fuckery titled “Right To Rise” on this broadcast you’ll also hear the latest singe “Right to Rise” & “Windows Down” both songs I recommend you blast loud and often.
Chad and I talk about a wide range of thing including the bands writing process, music while traveling including situational skits the bands records together while on tour that ranges from fingering, hanging balls much more.
Chad also talks about the bands live shows and the collective energy they put forth into their performances.
Chad and I also get into the expanded writing process as a collective unit before getting into the studio and recording this album.
The band name is a standard question and Chad explains how the name came to be Wilson came to be on a local print flyer before a keg party. Wilson is coming to party, drink your beer and give you hell.
Wilson has come a long way since their bombastic, brash, and ballsy 2013 full-length debut album, Full Blast Fuckery. They emerged on to the scene with a raucous, raw, and righteous rock sound that saw them become a live favorite, while sharing the stage with everybody from Black Label Society and Down to Five Finger Death Punch and Motörhead. Finishing up a touring whirlwind, the group decided to approach the creative process for Right To Rise from a new angle. Previously, Chad and Jason comprised the writing core, but they opened composition to the whole band, splitting sessions between Motor City and Atlanta with producer and writer Johnny Andrews (Halestorm, Three Days Grace, and Sick Puppies).
I had the pleasure to sit down with the one and only Andrew WK. I’d like to start off by saying his live show are outstanding, impactful and engaging as photographer and as an audience member. Andrew was not only kind, humble and wise. He was insightful and enlightening to speak with. There is a wise, steady vision with Andrew WK.
Andrew WK is a rock’n’roll maestro and a philosopher of life. Regardless of the topics Andrew offered a metaphor of realization that provoked growth and undivided attention.
Andrew WK and I spoke about the process of him upcoming book still in the writing process with the working title of “The Party Bible” I tried to see if I could get Andrew to give me his best televangelist impression but to no avail. He did however offer some great dialog about his musical career and desire to make new music.
Andrew WK is the life of the party, He’s the light, the beacon, the humble, well spoken dog on the blade of grass made of crystal. Welcome to the party and expand your horizon.
