Wilson Right To Rise on LP
Detroit rockers Wilson return with their second album, Right To Rise, on Razor & Tie. The new 12-track effort was produced by Johnny Andrews in Atlanta, GA. Vocalist Chad Nicefield explains the new music, “This record is for the people out there who wake up everyday with one thing in mind, to survive. Those who roll up their sleeves and put bread on the table. It’s a record that any man or woman can be proud of because it’s about honest hard work and good times. Right To Rise is our record. Not just Wilson’s record, but a record for all of the Wilsons out there. It rips, sweats, and works its ass off. We couldn’t be any more proud of the rock and roll jackhammer of fuckery we created on this thing!”
Wilson has come a long way since their bombastic, brash, and ballsy 2013 full-length debut album, Full Blast Fuckery. They emerged on to the scene with a raucous, raw, and righteous rock sound that saw them become a live favorite, while sharing the stage with everybody from Black Label Society and Down to Five Finger Death Punch and Motörhead. Finishing up a touring whirlwind, the group decided to approach the creative process for Right To Rise from a new angle.
Previously, Nicefield and guitarist Jason Spencer comprised the writing core, but they opened composition to the whole band, splitting sessions between the Motor City and Atlanta with producer and writer Johnny Andrews (Halestorm, Three Days Grace, Sick Puppies). Inspired by the band’s home-town of Detroit, MI, the album is armed with a battering ram of riffs and swaggering grooves, songs like the title track capture that spirit, while tapping into a distinctly “live” energy, offering a tribute to their home and rock music.
The band agrees, “Detroit is a city commonly portrayed as the underdog to most of the world. We were discarded by many when the shit hit the fan, but through hard work, passion, and determination we strive to rise again. ‘Right to Rise,’ though written to mirror our beautiful city is a song that we feel encompasses rock ‘n’ roll in the current climate of the industry. It’s for all the underdogs out there with their sleeves rolled up and their blue jeans on.”
"Wilson deliver a relentless onslaught of explosive hooks, meaty drums and brawny shout-along vocals that sound like singer Chad Nicefield is trying to bite you through the speakers.” – Kerrang
