Calling to mind the soulful, dynamic sounds of 70s giants such as Led Zeppelin, Humble Pie, and Free’s early years, Wild Adriatic has won early acclaim from places such as Rolling Stone, USA Today, Relix and Guitar World. The band, touring out of Saratoga Springs NY, played 175 live dates in over 10 countries in 2014 alone and is on track to match that in 2015.
The debut album Big Suspicious was released in January 2014 and WA has since stayed on the road in support of the effort. From playing Bonnaroo to headlining blues festivals in Connecticut for 10,000 people to a five week headlining European tour to serving as direct support for an impressive list of rock and roll royalty including Grand Funk Railroad, Robert Randolph, Blues Traveler, Deer Tick, MuteMath, and many more… Wild Adriatic is a high energy, riffy power trio to rival any you’ve seen before. The band has built a strong following off of a relentless tour schedule and a powerhouse live show, making noteworthy appearances at festivals like SXSW, moe.down, Gathering of the Vibes, Summer Camp, and CMJ.
Early 2015 saw the band consistently on the road across the US, ending their winter with a 6 week residency in Austin, TX leading up to SXSW, in addition to being featured in a theatrical commercial for Dolby Laboratories. All ramping up to the release of “Never Enough,” Wild Adriatic’s third EP/CD release. The 5 song disc features the new single “Strange Persuasions” and saw it’s release on March 17th at this year’s SXSW Festival. From there the band picked back up on with their hard-touring schedule, making stops at Bonnaroo, Summer Camp, and beyond.
