The Skinny: Detroit rockers Wilson will release their new album, Right To Rise (Razor & Tie), on June 30th. The band’s second full-length album was produced by producer Johnny Andrews (Halestorm, All That Remains, Three Days Grace) in Atlanta, GA. Listen below to “Hang With The Devil,” the first song off the album.

The band recently wrapped a UK/Europe tour with Halestorm and Nothing More and will head out with Nothing More again in North America on May 31st. Wilson will also have an album release party on Saturday, June 27th at the The Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac, MI (tour dates below).

Chad Nicefield of Wilson explains the new music: “This record is for the people out there who wake up everyday with one thing in mind, to survive. Those who roll up their sleeves and put bread on the table. It’s a record that any man or woman can be proud of because it’s about honest hard work and good times. Right To Rise is OUR record. Not just Wilson’s record, but a record for all of the WILSONS out there. It rips, sweats, and works its ass off. We couldn’t be any more proud of the rock and roll jackhammer of Fuckery we created on this thing!”
