Hailing from Lindsay, Ontario, Will Of Instinct formed when bass player Zach Mitchell, guitarist Austin Wilkins and drummer Adam Crossman got together to jam some old classic rock songs. Singer/guitarist Drew Truax joined the band shortly after as a frontman. After playing a string of summer shows, Will Of Instinct hit the studio with producer Nathan Truax to record a demo of their debut song 'Orange'. Shortly after this, Austin Wilkins and Adam Crossman left the band.
Zach and Drew recruited Drew's cousin Nathan as a new drummer, completing the band as a three-piece. The band spent the next few months writing and recording their debut EP 'Deranged', which was released on April 26th, 2013. The band took the EP on tour over the summer with Toronto rock band Naked Rebel Party. Both bands merged forces for a string of shows across Ontario. Drummer Phil English of Naked Rebel Party was added on as Will Of Instinct's permanent drummer after the tour ended. Nathan then became Will Of Instinct's lead guitar player, completing the band as the four-piece it is today.
2014 holds a lot of exciting things for Will Of Instinct, including a brand new record, new merch, and a new tour.
