WILSON Announces Tour With FUCK FACE UNSTOPPABLE

WILSON has just finished what was quite possibly their most debaucherous tour to date, and these dudes have no plans on stopping any time soon.

That being said the non-stop party will continue with a headline date on November 1 in Big Rapids, MI. Then at the end of November, WILSON will hit the road with Bam Margera’s Fuck Face Unstoppable. 

The Fuck Face Unstoppable tour kicks off November 30 in Peoria, IL and runs through December 18 in Montreal, QUE.  That’s not it though; this December the WILSON boys will be playing a special holiday show with fellow Detroit Metallers, Battlecross. 

Frontman Chad Nicefield checked in with an update on the band’s upcoming plans:

“After obliterating our minds and bodies with the spirits (the boozy kind) of what was almost the ENTIRE U.S of A over the past two months, we are excited to announce this next run of the gamut for WILSON.

We expect to not only smear our rock and roll feces all over the face of Canada, but are beyond excited to spend this captivating period of time with the likes of Mr. Margera and crew! We even get to spend a few days celebrating the holidays with our dear fellow Detroiters Battlecross! (FUCK YEA!)

We want you to fully expect WILSON to leave it all on stage every night. Nothing will stop the fuckery, nothing CAN stop the fuckery! Not even sub-zero temps, the mountains of the West or any wussy snow or ice that may try and stick it’s boner in our spokes.

So HO HO HO mother fuckers, WILSON has a bag of shit hawks to send flying in each of your towns!”

The Fuckery will be taking to the high seas next year as WILSON will be taking part in the “Shiprocked” Cruise set for January 26 – 30 2014.  The band will appear alongside Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach and many others.

For more information and to book a spot, visit the official site HERE.

WILSON’s video for “College Gangbang” (as heard on The Welding Roo) can be seen HERE.

WILSON are five dudes in a van with beards and big dicks- working harder than your parents.  But instead of giving their all as stockbrokers or auto-mechanics or assistant branch managers their job is to destroy your party.  When that WILSON van cruises into your town that shit is REAL. Real MUSIC. Real LIFE. Real LOUD. Real SWEATY. And real fucking FUN.
