Wildlife Release New Single “Born to Ruin”

wildlife-coverNext month, Toronto band Wildlife will release their new album, …On the Heart, on indie label Wax Records. The first single from the album, “Born to Ruin,” is an ambitious anthem with pounding drums, walls of guitar, and a shout-along chorus. The song announces itself boldly and never loses momentum, bringing the buzzsaw guitars to the front and pushing back the vocals for a fuller sound.

…On the Heart is produced by Peter Katis, whose past credits include big, dense albums like Interpol’s Turn On the Bright Lights and The National’s Boxer, and his involvement, along with “Born to Ruin,” should give some idea of what the album will sound like. Keep watching The Indie Mine for updates.

Check out the song below, via SoundCloud.
