The Wild Feathers Announce Tour with ZZ Ward, More Festival Dates


The Wild Feathers are continuing their touring streak through the summer. Fresh from a tour with Ryan Bingham and stops at the Sasquatch and Hangout Festivals, the Nashville five-piece has confirmed three more festivals: Milwaukee’s Summerfest July 3rd, Louisville’s Forecastle FestivalJuly14th and Austin City Limits October 6th & 13th. In August they will be joining the legendary Willie Nelson for a string of west coast dates, followed by a nationwide run supporting ZZ Ward. The Wild Feathers have also confirmed a New York show, on July10th at Rockwood Music Hall. Full tour dates are below.

This heavy roadwork is in support of the band’s self-titled debut album, out August 6th on Warner Bros Records. First single “The Ceiling” is heading toward the Top 15 at AAA radio, with a strong story building across the country.  Their music has been gaining critical attention, as well; Filter described The Wild Feathers as “full of powerful harmonies, country twang, breezy melodies and lots of guitar,” and Magnet declared “this group has got the goods.” The video for their song “Hard Wind” premiered recently on CMT, watch it here:

The Wild Feathers are a truly American band: their music takes elements of the best of rock, country, folk and blues music and reshapes it in a way that is both unique and modern. Ricky Young, Joel King, Taylor Burns, Preston Wimberly and Ben Dumas grew up steeped in music; playing solo gigs, touring with local bands and working at venues. The guys came together in Austin in 2010 through coincidence, mutual friends, and a shared love of the classics: Petty, Dylan, Cash, The Band, Graham Parsons and Neil Young. They spent the next year writing and defining their sound before heading into the studio to record with producer Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Emmylou Harris). Look for them in a town near you.
