Wildstreet to release new single “Raise Hell” on December 15th
New York sleaze rockers Wildstreet will be releasing a new single entitled “Raise Hell” on December 15th.
The group’s press release states in part:
“NYC sleaze rock pioneers, Wildstreet are set to release an epic new single, “Raise Hell” on December 15th. Written by founding members, Jimmie Marlowe and Eric Jayk, “Raise Hell,” has all the burning hot riffs, huge hooks and guitar heroics, fans would expect from the reigning “Kings of New York City Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
After a 3 year hiatus and rumors the band had broken up, Wildstreet played their first show in fall of 2016 at Gramercy Theatre in NYC. Throughout 2017 they have performed selectively on the East Coast, Midwest and at Rocklahoma 2017. They have a new lineup which includes: Jonny D (Bass), Dominick Martes (Guitar) and Lock (Drums). “Raise Hell” marks their first official release since their smash single “Easy Does It” in 2012. They will be releasing another single early next year, while planning 2018 tour/festival dates, recording a full-length album and releasing another music video.”
Back in early February 2017, Sleaze Roxx interviewed Wildstreet‘s frontman Eric Jayk who commented on what led the band to go on a lengthy hiatus before coming back. Jayk stated: “Hey, great question! Being in a band is hard work and we had the pedal to the floor from 2009 to 2013. I felt like I needed to pursue other interests musically, get my life and head together, and find a renewed love for Wildstreet and rock ‘n roll… My wife Kerija Kaleja, who is Astra The 22’s vocalist, and our friends helped me find renewed passion, energy and excitement for Wildstreet. Over the past three years, I began to understand our true fan reach, which is much greater than I had ever thought. Still, I won’t be satisfied until that is multiplied exponentially. You can’t be the biggest band in the world if you’re sitting at home watching TV or in my case teaching people to sing [laughs].”
