Upstate New York rock and roll trio Wild Adriatic is gearing up to the March 17th release of their new EP with a brand new exclusive track premiere/download via BeardBrand. The new song (and namesake of the EP) “Never Enough” is the first song the band wrote together after returning home from a monster year of touring including 175 live dates and their first 5 week headlining European tour.

When asked to elaborate on the song’s background, singer Travis Gray responded with a big sigh, a long pause, and: “It’s about exactly what it sounds like. In certain situations, no matter what, it’s just never enough.”

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, is on track for another personal record year of touring in 2015 and will make a stop at CXBB in Austin, TX on Monday March 16th. Their headlining stop at CXBB will see the release of the newly redesigned yet classic WA t-shirt instructing folks: “If you liked it then you shoulda put a beard on it.”

The debut album Big Suspicious was released in January 2014 and WA has since stayed on the road in support of the effort. From 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 has seen 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 release and fourth overall. The 5 song disc features the new single “Strange Persuasions” and will see it’s release on March 17th at this year’s SXSW Festival. From there the band will kick off their “Somos Pocos Peros Locos” Spring 2015 tour with a string of Northeast CD release shows, with touring to continue through 2015.

A pre-order of the Never Enough EP is now going on at the band’s webstore: wildadriatic.bigcartel.com. Copies pre-ordered for $5 are signed and shipped right away to arrive to you at least a week before the release date!
