Wildstreet frontman Eric Jayk gets pretty angry with himself if he doesn’t write something every day
Wildstreet‘s lead vocalist Eric Jayk was recently interviewed by Defenders of The Faith. Wildstreet will be releasing their third studio album Wildstreet III via Golden Robot Records on June 25, 2021.
In terms of the direction that we can expect on Wildstreet III, Jayk indicated: “Wildstreet 3 has been done for over a year, maybe a year and a half. It’s definitely an album, not single by single, but we released it as such because of the state of the world and we’re trying to get enough momentum to launch the record. Our next single comes out on May 17. It’s called “Mother” and our fans have not heard Wildstreet like this. I think we’ll get a lot of new fans and also change the way people think about us. As I said earlier, the album comes out on June 25. You can preorder the vinyl and CD, and pre-save on digital on Spotify, Apple Music, etc. on May 17. Definitely get a copy. We’ve never had vinyl before!”
With respect to songwriting, Jayk stated: “Well you’re talking to the strictest person ever in that regard *laughs*. I get pretty angry with myself if I don’t write something everyday. Even if it’s just a vocal idea or a quick recording, it’s like, the time is now. I gotta do this. Why? Because I love it and it’s what I do. It’s my job. I go through periods when I can’t write anything and I get so down on music that I don’t know what to do. As far as recording as a band, that’s a little more complicated. There’s tons of demos of songs, but recording in a studio…you have to be ready and you have to have a concept in mind and an album together.”
