Wilderado is releasing “Sometimes” b/w “Tomorrow” today via Bright Antenna Records – listen HERE – and available on limited edition 7” vinyl.

The new songs were written by the band during sessions for their forthcoming sophomore album, recorded in Norman, Oklahoma, and produced by Chad Copelin (Sufjan Stevens, SYML) and James McAlister (Gracie Abrams, The National).

The two-track single is Wilderado's first new music of 2024 and follows last fall's “In Between” single, whose latest version featured guest vocals from Matt Berninger of The National. News of “Sometimes” b/w “Tomorrow” comes along with news of the band's June US headline tour.

As the first new single “Sometimes” kicks in with the sound of Max's gentle vocals over an acoustic guitar you are reminded of where Wilderado has come from. The single harkens back to some of the band's earliest recordings and when asked about the song Max shared, “This is a look into coping mechanisms. It's something I've struggled with this year. I convince myself I need help calming down or being social at the right times. The first part of the song is indulgence, the second part is the reality of the situation and the ending is the honest bit.”

“Tomorrow” brings you into the present and reflects the growth of the group since originally forming in 2015, with more complex song structures and melodies. “Tomorrow came from a lost guitar part that we finally stitched into a song,” revealed Max, adding, “For some reason the body of music felt like a safe place to try and dive into my troubled faith. The further I went the heavier it got. Similar to the energy that builds in a frustrating conversation, I feel like the song helped me ride a motivation and spill my guts a bit.”

Since first forming, Wilderado has been steadily building a passionate fan base. They have accrued 200+ MILLION streams and 3+ MILLION monthly listeners across platforms and their live following has continued to grow each year. The as yet-to-be-titled sophomore LP will follow the band's self-titled debut full-length. Released October 2021 via Bright Antenna Records, the album led to their Late Night TV Debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and AM TV Debut on CBS Saturday Morning.

Last spring Wilderado toured with My Morning Jacket and released Wilderado Live – their first ever live LP featuring career spanning songs including “Surefire” and “Head Right” (their two Top 10 Alternative Radio hits from Wilderado) along with several older songs including “Wheat” and “Morning Light” as well as fan favorite “Rubble to Rubble.”
