NYC punk/rock ‘n’ roll band WYLDLIFE have announced their fourth album ‘Year Of The Snake’ which will be out on April 17 via Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records. As a teaser for the album, the band have shared a bold new single titled Kiss And Tell.

About the new single, frontman Dave Feldman says, “After listening to ‘Definitely Maybe’ for more times than we can count, Sam and I wanted to make a song that was tough and angry but still confident and cool. The lyric “I’d rather be ignored than be adored” was a riff on another favorite Manchester band, the Stone Roses. Obviously we as a band want to be celebrated and have an impact on people’s lives, but most times I just want to be left the fuck alone. WYLDLIFE tends to have a larger than life personality, but most people don’t actually know any thing about us. I’ve said “good to see you” to more people I don’t know than I’m comfortable with.”

“I feel like WYLDLIFE is kind of the biggest outlier band of our time,” says Dave Feldman, lead singer of the fierce four-piece NYC Rock ’n’ Roll machine that continues its stylishly anachronistic upending of Rock ’n’ Roll expectations with their fourth album and boldest artistic statement yet, ‘Year Of The Snake‘.

Stuffed with catchy riffs and choruses, charmingly specific lyrics and a palpable love of ’70s punk, glam and power pop, ‘Year Of The Snake’ is the long-anticipated follow-up to WYLDLIFE’s Wicked Cool debut, ‘Out On Your Block’. That 2017 release, featuring their breakthrough hit Contraband, made the upper half of the CMJ and NACC college radio charts and was hailed by Thrasher as “Rock ’n’ Roll that makes your heart beat faster and your fists scream.”
