The Lonely Wild returns by leaking another riveting single, “Hunted,” off their sophomore album, Chasing White Light, dropping October 2nd via eOne Music/Fast Plastic. Recorded at Tiny Telephone Studios in The Mission with John Vanderslice, the album continues the band’s signature grandeur of Americana indie rock channeling Spaghetti Western scores but due to their producer’s self-described “sloppy hi-fi” recording techniques the band found themselves playing antique instruments while recording to tape. The result is rawer, louder, and more emotive than anything they’ve done before. And with frontman Andrew Carroll’s macabre-inspired lyrics, the songs collectively become a majestic masterpiece.
“Sometimes I feel like we’re being hunted.”
The Lonely Wild‘s album release show is on September 25th at The Echoplex.
