A different kind of wildlife will be roaming across the country this fall.

Fresh off their Canadian and U.S. tours, followed by Ontario dates supporting Young The Giant, Toronto’s own Wildlife has been invited out on the road with fellow Canadian rockers Hollerado.

With dates across Canada — including Nelson on Tuesday, Sept. 27 — the shows kicked off in Sudbury on Sept. 14. Leading up to the tour, they were back in the U.S. on the Daytrotter Barnstormer 5 Tour.

A fixture in the Toronto concert scene, Wildlife is known for their great sound and amazing high-energy shows. From the second they take the stage in their black dress shirt and blue armband uniform, to the very last note, all five guys give it everything they’ve got.

That energy spreads out into the crowd as the audience dances, jumps and sings along at the top of their lungs, fuelled by the intensity flowing off the stage.

With a killer combination of great songs and irresistible stage presence, there’s no doubt that this band walks away with new fans-for-life after every set.

They will share the stage with White Rabbits, Doug Paisley, Princeton, Hacienda, Hundred Visions, Madi Diaz, Keegan DeWitt, and Nona Marie & The Choir.

Wildlife’s debut album Strike Hard, Young Diamond was released late last year on Easy Tiger/Wax Records, and is available now on iTunes.

The album features the band’s undeniably catchy sound that blends power-pop, rock, and soul. The first single will be unleashed to rock radio mid-August with a video to follow shortly after.
