Detroit rockers Wilson have premiered their music video for “Right to Rise” exclusively on VEVO.  The anthemic song is off the band’s sophomore album Right to Rise, released via Razor & Tie. The album is available on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.

The video for “Right to Rise” serves as an ode to Wilson’s hometown. The video features the city’s thriving landmarks and residents. The band explains, “When we wrote the song we wanted to tell a story about the area of the world we live in. After traveling so much the past few years we realize the magnifying glass that the media has put on Detroit has damaged not only our city’s image but more importantly our peoples’ image. We all struggle with life’s weight no matter where we live in this world … Our peoples’ story is not unlike the millions of other people out there put against the wall daily, cast aside as underdogs and thought of as ‘already dead.’ It’s through the struggle to survive in those conditions that we create our strengths.

A debut album titled Full Blast Fuckery is bound to turn some heads. But on its second release, Right to Rise (Razor & Tie, June 29, 2015), Wilson has taken more of a let-the-music-do-the-talking approach, with a greater emphasis on melody and songs that tell their story in their hometown of Detroit, Michigan. The result is an album brimming with power and personality that also expands the scope of the band’s sound. Wilson is spending the late summer and early fall on the hardDrive Live Tour, reaching wider audiences as it opens for Trivium and Tremonti. When the tour came to the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, Live Metal’s Greg Maki sat down outside the venue (with the soothing sounds of Tremonti soundchecking in the background) with frontman Chad Nicefield and guitarist Kyle Landry to discuss the new record, Detroit and more.

For some people, a vacation is a time of relaxation, of escaping the real world and the responsibilities that come with it. Some visit with friends and family. Others travel to new and exotic locations around the world.

Me? I take a break from my day job to cover four concerts in five days, in two states and the District of Columbia. (more…)
