Wilson Announces New Tour Dates

Wilson has just finished what was quite possibly the band's most debaucherous tour to date, and these dudes have no plans on stopping any time soon.

The non-stop party will continue with a headline date on November 1st in Big Rapids, MI. Then at the end of November Wilson will hit the road with Bam Margera's Fuck Face Unstoppable. The tour kicks off November 30th in Peoria, IL and runs through December 18th in Montreal. That's not it though, this December the Wilson boys will be playing a special holiday show with fellow Detroit Metallers Battlecross.

Frontman Chad Nicefield checked in with an update on the band's upcoming plans: "After obliterating our minds and bodies with the spirits (the boozy kind) of what was almost the entire U.S of A over the past two months, we are excited to announce this next run of the gamut for Wilson.

"We expect to not only smear our rock and roll feces all over the face of Canada, but are beyond excited to spend this captivating period of time with the likes of Mr. Margera and crew! We even get to spend a few days celebrating the holidays with our dear fellow Detroiters Battlecross (FUCK YEA)!

"We want you to fully expect Wilson to leave it all on stage every night. Nothing will stop the fuckery, nothing CAN stop the fuckery! Not even sub-zero temps, the mountains of the West or any wussy snow or ice that may try and stick it's boner in our spokes.

"So HO HO HO mother fuckers, WILSON has a bag of shit hawks to send flying in each of your towns!" More...

Wilson Releases "College Gangbang" Video

Wilson's debut album "Full Blast Fuckery" is available now and the band will be touring across the country in support of it, but today the band has teamed up with Crave Online to premiere a video for "College Gangbang."

The video was made by Detroit filmmakers Nick Ferguson and Raymond Rivard, who recently joined forces under the name Club Davison. The video was filmed at the Metal Frat in Ann Arbor, MI and can be viewed below. Frontman Chad Nicefield comments:

"We are very excited to unleash our debut debaucherous music video for 'College Gangbang' the 1st single off our brand spanking new album Full Blast Fuckery. At a time when bands and fans alike are riddled with bad attitudes and overly stale states of mind, we over here at the WILSON camp have been training, preparing and formulating the correct way to adjust those attitudes.

"We have enlisted a hero of epic proportions to turn these party frowns upside down. A man so hell-bent on making sure your life's inner soiree is celebrated that he is even willing to kill for you. A man built so well endowed that any female that steps foot into his presence will surely be brought to her knees in pure ecstasy. A man so party that John Belushi himself came back from the grave just to stare into the eyes of a man more worthy. An enigma of a man so full of pure adulterating good times that Macaulay Culkin literally stepped down from his role in Party Monster 2 to hand over the baton. A TRUE hero of our times.

"So grab your lady (ladies) or your man (men), a bong and your favorite 40oz of malt liquor and Experience The Gangbang." More...

Wilson Streaming New Song

Wilson is a band that has toured relentlessly since 2010, through big cities and little podunks. A band that records its albums the ol' fashioned way: with instruments. And analog gear. Fifth and sixth and twentieth takes. A band that brings that last Friday night on Earth mentality equally to huge crowds and audiences of two solitary dudes.

Today the band has premiered another track from debut "Full Blast Fuckery," entitled "My Life, My Grave." Check out at Absolute Punk here.

You can also read Wilson's recent addition to our catalog of Pit Stories at this location. The track listing for "Full Blast Fuckery" is as follows:

4. College Gangbang
5. Snake Eyes
6. I Can Beat Your Dad
7. Viking Pussies Fuck Off
8. If You Ever Leave Me I Will Find You
9. Susan Jane

Pit Stories: Newsted's Unintentional Stage Dive

The pit is the heart of the metal scene, and just about every metal head has a favorite pit story, which is why each week we check in with musicians from around the globe to get their best tale of moshing mayhem.

Today Detroit act Wilson shares this story of a stage dive gone wrong while the band was supporting Newsted at Highline Ballroom on May 21st, 2013:

Recently Wilson was honored with the privilege of being Jason Newsted’s direct support for his new endeavor aptly called Newsted. We went out on a string of dates from May 15th – 23rd together. Each night venues packed in tons of middle aged veterans of metal who had most likely just dropped off their suits to the dry cleaners on 5th Ave right before they traded their Hush Puppies for a pair of Converse to "kick out the jams" for their well-deserved evening of debauchery. I mean no disrespect here, the folks that were in attendance at these shows were ready to let the juices of the metal parking lot coarse through their veins once again, however, these folks were not there to “mosh it up” like they had in their teens, they wanted to bang their heads, crush some brews and party hard, (as hard as a 40 year old pissed off teen turned carpenter could) but not to harm each other. You could literally see the aggression build in each one of them as Newsted ripped through bangers every night, but never crossing that line…except in NYC.

The gods of metal were toiling with the crowd at the Highline Ballroom and as Newsted starting ripping the opening riffs to Whiplash (the only Metallica cover he played) the crowd went ape shit. Let me precursor this by adding this was the only show on the tour that did not have a barricade of sorts… and after that night it would be the last. About half way through the song (you know the part where “its fucking WHIPLASH”) a rapid fan had let his blood boil enough and just HAD to get on that stage with the legend for some honest to goodness stage divin’. And just as he thought his coast was clear and he spotted an open area to let the hands of the crowd carry him into sweet, sweet drunken revelry …BAM!! His body met the body of a Mr. Jason Newsted. In fact the collision between him and Newsted was so fast and jarring it sent Jason flying off the stage face first into the crowd. Well, the crowd and some floor.

"Wilson is not an 'internet band.' They're five dudes in a van with beards and big dicks- working harder than your parents.

Wilson Joining Warbeast On Tour

Wilson will be embarking on a tour with Gwar and Warbeast this coming April, with dates available below. The following press release was also issued about Wilson:

"The growl of chain saws making firewood of fifty foot pines. That's Wilson. The howling of a pack of wolves battling a rabid moose. That's Wilson. The panting, gasping breaths of a smoke break 'nooner.' That's fucking Wilson. The citation for a noise violation... that's just where the party begins.

"If all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, then all party and no bullshit have made Wilson juggernauts. For the past few years Wilson has transformed shows into parties, and concerts into riots throughout the Midwest. Wilson has not only held their own, but raised the bar for how much fun live music can be.

"Now Wilson is ready to take their party to the road, heading out on the 'Fate or Chaos' North American tour with Mutant Overlords GWAR and Warbeast. The tour is set to kick off April 10th in Tucson, AZ and will run through April 25th in Jacksonville, FL. Tickets for all the dates are on sale now."

Chad Nicefield Vocalist/Weirdo Beardo commented on the upcoming "Fate or Chaos" tour: "We are extremely excited and honored to be supporting the legendary GWAR this April! Wilson cannot wait for all the fuckery to unveil itself on the road with these scumdogs!" More...
