The growl of chain saws making firewood of fifty foot pines. That’s WILSON. The howling of a pack of wolves battling a rabid moose. That’s WILSON. The panting, gasping breaths of a smoke break “nooner”. That’s fucking WILSON. The citation for a noise violation… that’s just where the party begins. If all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, then all party and no bullshit have made WILSON juggernauts. For the past few years WILSON have transformed shows into parties, and concerts into riots throughout the Midwest. WILSON not only held their own, but raised the bar for how much fun live music can be.

Now they are ready to take their party to the road, heading out on the “Fate or Chaos” North American tour with Mutant Overlords GWAR and Warbeast. The tour kicks off April 10. All dates listed on the TOUR DATES page. Tickets for all the dates are on sale now.

Chad Nicefield Vocalist/Weirdo Beardo commented on the upcoming “Fate or Chaos” tour:

“We are extremely excited and honored to be supporting the legendary GWAR this April! WILSON cannot wait for all the fuckery to unveil itself on the road with these scumdogs!”

WILSON recently completed work on a video for their song Better Off check it out HERE. Check out their song Susan Jane HERE.

Five dudes growing up in Michigan‘s post-industrial wasteland, know when life gives you lemons, buy a bottle of tequila, chug it, and enjoy biting into that sour fruit. You can taste that philosophy in the music. With a brutal rhythm section and fret-board wizardry, they bring the best parts of metal into their hook heavy straight up rock n’ roll. Don’t be surprised if you see the gnarliest, glowering dude in the bar start dancing like a first grader on a school picnic once the music starts. Rabid demand from a growing fan base has sold out their debut EP, Standing on the Reel. They have a new full-length album coming in 2013, produced by Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Saves the Day, Every Time I Die).

With a new album in the works and relentless tour schedule, whatever you do, don’t go to, unless you’re ready to fucking party!

GEMINI SYNDROME Release New Video, Announce Tour

(Burbank, CA) – Gemini Syndrome encapsulates both ends of the spectrum. The band conjures ethereal alternative melodies and then tempers them with gnashing, guttural distortion.

GS_Photo1 (2).jpg B&@ blur




These five musicians—Aaron, Rich, Mike, AP, and Brian— all from diverse musical bands and worlds converged when the guys discovered that the spiritual musings of Aaron melded with Rich, AP and Mikes taste for dark and melodious rhythms. It was when Aaron’s fascination for the illuminati and mysticism caught Brian’s attention and sealed the unbreakable bond that would then extend between each of the members. They began residing under one roof, to live, sleep, and breathe music together communally as a band in the truest sense.

After some early demos and cutting their teeth on the road, the group retreated to Las Vegas to complete what would become their first offering with Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne, In This Moment).

Their progressive fascinations bare resemblance to their musical ethos. Aaron will reference clandestine secrecy of “The Enlightened” in the same breath as espousing the merits of Eastern Buddhist ideology. At the same time, Brian speaks of his Freemasonry studies and owns a collection of literature any occult scholar would envy.

Songs like Pleasure and Pain rail with coarse riffs and haunting words, “In all of us is a sin that begins and doesn’t end until we syphon the last breath”. The ties that bind us all are the most vibrant and volatile.

Click here to listen to Pleasure And Pain. 

Click here to view the lyric video.

“Gemini” in Zodiac represents “The Twins” and “Syndrome” which has meaning of a person’s “innate condition” form together to represent the duality within all of us.

There are bonds to everything at the end of the day—from the music to the message. Now, it’s up to you to uncover the meaning for yourself.
