Late in 2016 the trio of Nils Edenloff, Paul Banwatt and Robin Hatch hit the road for a unique set of shows in some of their favorite venues across North America and Europe. They had been hard at work writing their next album and wanted to work out the new material the way they love best: by bringing it to their fans in person. As Nils put it, "I've never been good about focusing on a theme or having a specific plan at the outset of a new record. For me, writing music tends to be more of a constantly evolving process, like following one strange trail after another until a song has come to its general conclusion. This time around, we're following that natural writing process more and inviting the fans to come along those trails with us." Over the ensuing months they took the lessons of the road into the studio, laying ten new tracks to tape. Earlier in 2017, fans had their first chance to hear the results with the release of singles "White Lights" and "Beacon Hill." Now, the full fruit of their labors can be found on The Wild.
