Wild Child announce new album End Of The World & share the raucous title track

Austin-based ensemble Wild Child have announced their new album End of the World, out March 31 via Reba’s Ranch Records, their new self-run label exclusively distributed by Secretly Distribution.

Accompanying the news is a brand new single, the LP’s title track, ‘End of the World’, a barnburning ode to contemporary dangers and the ways in which these major fears colour the little things in our lives. The track’s origins come from the catharsis at the tail end of the deadly Texas ice storm in 2021. “Amidst the chaos, ‘End Of The World’ was conceived as a reflection or means of trying to make sense of all of the unsettling events unfolding in front of us in real time and around the world,” says one half of the band’s core songwriting duo, Alexander Beggins. “After the ice began to melt and we were able to drive to the studio in Denton, TX, ‘Lean On Me’ came on the radio and added a top-notch layer of levity to the surreal moment. We recorded ‘End of the World’ right when we got to the studio, infused with all of the cabin fever and frantic energy of the previous week.”

End of the World will be the band’s fifth full length album, written with Wild Child’s newest member, John Calvin Abney, who joins the band’s core writing duo Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins. Abney joins Wild Child as the first songwriter to collaborate with the duo on an album.
