Since their 2011 debut Pillow Talk, Austin natives of Wild Child have won the hearts of many. Hitting several sold-out clubs on their winter tour, this indie-rock outfit has increasingly gained well-deserved attention. Appearing on several “Best of 2013” lists with their sophomore album, The Runaround, the band is back with a video premiere.
Based on live performances and behind the scenes footage shot over the course of the past year, Wild Child has created a behind the scenes look into their day to day lives on the road. The video is a compilation of moments from their current life, featuring everything from the recording studio to SXSW performances.
“It is a look at what life is like for us on the road. It does a great job of capturing the sometimes raucous vibe of a Wild Child show,” said singer Alexander Beggins.
Wild Child is set to take off on an upcoming tour, playing a string of shows throughout the US. Head over to the band’s website for a full list of tour dates, and be sure to check out the new video for “The Runaround” below.
