Currently at work on a follow-up album, the guys will release a new single, “Alone in the Wilderness,” on Monday, May 21. The song will premiere at 8 that night exclusively on 88.7 WJCU.

The band’s new studio effort, Worse for the Wear
, is due out by the end of the year.
“I had to learn everything about the recording process,” says singer Alex Zinni in a press release about the single’s release. “From pre-production, tracking, and mixing, I spent a lot of time getting this material to where it is now. It’s been such a learning experience, and it’s just the beginning.”
The band plays a release show with the Whiskey Hollow and the Midnight Slander at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, June 1, at the Beachland Tavern
“Alone in the Wilderness” will be available for streaming and digital download on June 1.
