Rockwired Radio Profiles #613 - Wayland

It makes all of the sense to us in the world why bands choose to release a single here and there as opposed to that one large release. This is the reality that music makes have been dealt but in the case of the band WAYLAND the formula has certainly paid off. Since the release of their self-titled debut EP back in 2012 WAYLAND has built their massive following the old fashioned way - by living on the road and hitting every major city with their now renowned live performances. Toward the end of 2014 WAYLAND scored a hit with their single GET A LITTLE - an anthemic stomper that celebrated the struggles and joys of the working man. Anthems have been where it's at for WAYLAND since they first hit the scene so it's exciting to announce that their newest single BLOODY SUNRISE is a nice little departure. Don't think for a second that the band's penchant for directness has taken a backseat. It's only been tempered by some rustic southern rock flourishes that typify bands such as LYNYRD SKYNYRD and THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND. Not bad for a band whose members hail from both Wisconsin and California. According to the band's guitarist PHILLIP VILENKSI the band recorded the single in Atlanta which would probably explain the songs Southern vibe of the track. The single is a taste of a larger work to come and VILENKSI promises that what people will hear is a band coming along as one should in rock n roll - wiser and a hell of a lot more confident. Without a doubt one will hear that in this new offering form WAYLAND.
