(CO5) Austin rockers The Wyldz are gearing up for the release of their new studio album Interstellar Troubadours by hitting the road this past week for their Spring U.S. tour.
Earlier this year, The Wyldz collaborated with legendary engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Pixies, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page) on the upcoming album.
Convening in Albini's famed Electrical Audio studio in Chicago, the trio recorded the entire 12-track album in just six days, completely analog. Additional mixing handled by Grammy-nominated engineer Mark Needham (The Airborne Toxic Event, Scott Weiland).
"We wanted to record Interstellar Troubadours on tape to capture the live experience and the warmth as if you are in the room with us," explains drummer Oliv Porrini. "Whether performing together in the studio or onstage, we share a mutual freedom of musical expression, a very natural and extraordinary alchemy," says guitarist Alex Dhee. See the tour dates here.
