Wilson / Press

“East Lansing and Detroit-based Wilson (above) has become one of Michigan’s most popular hard rock bands by injecting its heavy, snap-tight brand of music with brisk rhythms and plenty of hook heavy rock ‘n’ roll. In other Wilson news, the gents are gearing up for their third, half-month long tour throughout the U.S. They’ve also been recording new material and are waiting for a few new tracks to be mixed and mastered. “The release of these tracks is still to be determined, but it's some of the best sounding stuff we've had to date!” guitarist Jason Spencer said.”

“Wilson have released their song, "I Can Beat Your Dad" for free download on their Soundcloud page. ”

“Wilson What Real Party Rock Looks (And Sounds) Like”

“Wilson’s gnarly rock coming to Grand Rapids on Friday with Stockton, Stone The Manic and Blue Shifter”

“omehow you are using your blue jeans as a pillow; no wonder your butt is cold. Before you have time to wonder where you are or how you got there, you realize you must drink water. A lot of water. Even in the distorted reflection of the chrome-covered faucet, you can see the imprint of the carpet on your cheek. And then you remember ...”

“Somehow you are using your blue jeans as a pillow; no wonder your butt is cold. Before you have time to wonder where you are or how you got there, you realize you must drink water. A lot of water. A choir of angels fall in clear cold streams into an oversized BD’s Mongolian Barbecue glass mug. Even in the distorted reflection of the chrome covered faucet, you can see the imprint of the carpet on your cheek. And then you remember... ”

“Most fun I had watching live music in the Blue Water Area/region Wilson at Military Street Music Café (Port Huron, August) Port Huron native Chad Nicefield (Heirs, With Rescue Breathing, Manna and Quail) came back to town with his latest band, Wilson. Ditching the melody from his past bands in favor of an all-out barrage of guitar rock in the vein of Every Time I Die, Nicefield showcased his abilities as a truly dynamic and charismatic frontman. I caught a repeat performance a few months later in Flint, which was great, but it couldn’t compare to Nicefield’s electrifying hometown show.”

“For East Lansing alt-metal group Wilson, 2010 has brought many firsts: a first album ("Standing on the Reel") and a new singer (Chad Nicefield), to name a few. Add to that a first music video for the track, "Snake Eyes." If you’re familiar with Wilson’s music, then the theme of zombies in the music video won’t come as a surprise. Like the band’s album, which is centered around a zombie apocalypse of sorts, the action-packed video is based on the concept of a "zombie mockumentary," where the band goes around capturing people to come party with them at a show. The guys --- Nicefield, Jason Spencer (guitar), Joel Mathews (guitar), Drew Rambo (bass) and Michael McGowan (drums) --- shot the video in two epic days. The first day was outdoor footage in an open field in Livonia, and the second was live footage of the guys rocking a party, which was shot at The Crofoot in Pontiac.”

“I stopped listening to Alternative Rock that came out after 1998 because the recipe had become tedious and overused: strong guitars, 'I'm-angry-broken-but-sensitive' throaty singing and unoriginal drum and guitar work. When I had heard that the group Wilson was becoming popular and could be considered Alt. Rock I shrugged and put on smile. I'll check it out and support them - at least their local.”

“East Lansing-based alternative metal band Wilson writes songs about zombies. Advertisement Not just any zombies: Michigan zombies. As guitarist Jason Spencer explains, the band's 8-song EP, "Standing On the Reel," is based on a fictional character, "Ranger Mudd," a murderer who lives in the upper Michigan woods.”

“...The five members of the group, “Wilson,” took home $1,500 to Marshall Music, and perhaps some girls along with the cash. It was evident that Wilson would take away the prize when they were the first band to get a standing ovation, as well as enthusiastic cheering from the crowd following their performance. The East Lansing based band made it known that this was a serious battle as soon as they entered the stage...”
