Despite their classic rock beats, WildEyes has an upbeat, modern sound sure to get everyone on their feet.

Their debut EP, Revanchist, was released in 2016, featuring singles such as Revolutionary and Ny Anthem which has been featured on ESPN.  And get excited – they’re getting ready to release their debut full-length album this summer. There are little hints about what to expect, but as noted on Faulkner’s Facebook page, “The less you know about Faulkner, the more you know about Faulkner.”

Recently, we got to connect with Faulkner at a small show in Los Angeles, and saw them rock the crowd with their high-energy sound. As a band with big energy and even bigger dreams, we can expect to see a lot more of them very soon.

We got to ask them a few questions about their journey, their sound, and their REVOLUTION.  Here’s what they had to say:
