Tulsa, Oklahoma band Wilderado – Max Rainer (lead singer, guitarist), Tyler Wimpee (guitarist, vocals), Justin Kila (drums) – will be kicking off their extensive US headline tour on June 7th at Delmar Hall in Saint Louis, MO. The tour will continue through June and July before Wilderado heads to Chicago in August to perform at this year’s Lollapalooza Festival. They continue on into the fall culminating with a headline show in their hometown at Cain’s Ballroom on October 26th with direct support from Josiah & The Bonnevilles.

The 2024 touring comes as the band is preparing to release their new full-length studio album Talker on September 20th via Bright Antenna Records. The album was recorded in Norman, Oklahoma, and produced by Chad Copelin (Sufjan StevensSYML) and James McAlister (Gracie AbramsThe National). When asked about the new LP, Rainer shared, “I’m proud to say we made an album that feels like home and weathers who we are.”

The band has already released a few album tracks including the title track “Talker,” which came out earlier this month and follows February’s double single “Sometimes” b/w “Tomorrow,” and last fall’s “In Between” – a single that saw several alternate versions, one featuring guest vocals from Matt Berninger of The National and one with a few fellow Oklahomans including folk/Americana artist Ken Pomeroy on vocal and guitar and Muskrat Jones (Colter Wall) on pedal steel.

In addition to their new studio album, just last week Wilderado were announced as one of the featured artists on the official soundtrack for the new Twisters movie. For their contribution, Wilderado teamed up with Ken Pomeroy and James McAlister to cover REM‘s “Wall Of Death.” The film and soundtrack are due out July 19th.

Wilderado’s expansive indie rock fuses soaring vocals and rumbling guitars with an open-road, Americana-inspired feel. Since first forming, they have been steadily building a passionate fan base, accruing 200+ MILLION streams and 3+ MILLION monthly listeners across platforms and their live following has continued to grow each year. Talker will follow the band’s self-titled debut full-length that was released in October 2021 via Bright Antenna Records and led to their Late Night TV Debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and AM TV Debut on CBS Saturday Morning. Spring 2023 had Wilderado touring with My Morning Jacket and releasing Wilderado Live – their first ever live LP featuring career spanning songs including “Surefire” and “Head Right” (two Top 10 Alt Radio hits from Wilderado) along with several older songs including “Wheat” and “Morning Light” as well as fan favorite “Rubble to Rubble.”
