The Sun As It Comes is a masterpiece of harmonious country rock.” — Consequence of Sound

“An anthemic sound — equal parts western, southern and something not quite defined by geographic adjectives.” — American Songwriter

“With them, indie rock has a whole new sound.” — Indecent Xposure

Coming off a year-long tour in support of their critically-acclaimed album, The Sun As It Comes, The Lonely Wild is poised to record their most ambitious album to date. Working with producer John Vanderslice at his famed Tiny Telephone studios in San Francisco, the Angeleno quintet will be recording and mixing strictly to analog tape in an effort to capture the magic of a bygone era of rock ‘n’ roll that inspires their sound.

In 2011 The Lonely Wild emerged as a band of multi-instrumentalists whose writing and arranging talents were only surpassed their ability to work seamlessly as a singular, dynamic voice. Pulling from 1960’s western cinema, Laurel Canyon vocal stylings, and the adventurous spirit of The British Invasion, The Lonely Wild pushed these sounds to new uncharted territories and achieved the contradictory feat of reminding listeners of something they had never heard.

Their 2012 debut EP, Dead End, laid the foundation for their 2013 full-length follow-up, The Sun As It Comes, which propelled them to the national stage and earned them radio play on taste-making stations across the country, including KCRW, The Current, WRLT Nashville, and KDHX St. Louis.

“The songwriting on all of the songs here is engaging, apt, and relevant, serving as the icing on the cake to the sonically delightful music that this band doles out, track after track.” — Austin Town Hall

“I needed a cigarette and a damp rag after these guys played. My world exploded that night inside the Constellation Room and I sat there in silence in a sea of people as I rebuilt my mind from the rubble that it was after the Lonely Wild’s last song. Truly excellent display of creativity, passion, and musicianship all wrapped up in a package that is just waiting to be discovered.” — Unearth Music
