*The Following Press Release Was Issued By Earshot Media*
NYC punk/rock ‘n’ roll 4-piece WYLDLIFE has dropped a music video for “Kiss and Tell” off the band’s recently released fourth album ‘Year Of The Snake’, available now via Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records.
The high-spirited clip, which echoes the unbridled energy of their live shows, is now streaming here: https://youtu.be/yAlZ-IAXaQE.
Of the video, frontman Dave Feldman tells Inked Magazine: “The concept was made by the director, and our friend, Randy Slavin. It’s been about 10 years since we’ve worked with him, so I guess he let all these weird f*cked up ideas marinate in his head. We shot this without any permits and were constantly looking over our shoulders for cops/cyclists/joggers who would be like, ‘What the fuck?’ I mean, we had toy guns but they look pretty realistic.”

Recorded in late 2019 at Renegade Studios, NYC, home base of Van Zandt, ‘Year Of The Snake’ was produced by guitarist Sam Allen with Geoff Sanoff, the engineer known for his work with Bruce Springsteen, Fountains Of Wayne, Dashboard Confessional and others.
Stuffed with catchy riffs and choruses, charmingly specific lyrics and a palpable love of ’70s punk, glam and power pop, ‘Year Of The Snake’ is the long-anticipated follow-up to WYLDLIFE’s Wicked Cool debut, ‘Out On Your Block.’

What others are saying about WYLDLIFE:
“During their live shows, frontman Dave Feldman can transform from having a preening ’70s Mick Jagger vibe to the beer-soaked, primal intensity of Iggy Pop in an instant.”- Inked Magazine
“…the New York foursome has delivered its best and most stylistically varied album yet.”- Faster and Louder
“With an irrepressible fusion of punk, garage and power-pop, Wyldlife’s fourth full-length album, and arguably its best, explodes with its nods to rock ‘n’ roll icons from the Stone Roses to the New York Dolls to the Rolling Stones, along with a few tracks that might surprise even long-time fans.”- Jersey Journal/NJ.com
“Swaggering rhythms, infectious choruses, and lyrics that are instantly memorable. Wyldlife imagines a more focused Paul Westerberg creating a bomping bit of hard-edged but radio-ready pop.”- PopMatters
“High-octane rock with just the right blend of snottiness …meant to be played very incredibly loud. Kind of plays like a stadium-filling evolution of nerdy punk a la Cheap Trick.”- A Journal Of Musical Things
“…Wyldlife would’ve easily fit in alongside bands such as The Strokes, Jet, or The Hives, just as much as they would have found their place on the CBGB’s stage in the 1970’s.”- All Ages Zine
“Highly essential rock ‘n’ roll…”- RPM Online
You know what I never get tired of?….loud guitars, catchy melodies, leather jackets and bands that sneer at the camera. WYLDLIFE brings the ruckus! – Andy Shernoff (Dictators)
