BALCONYTV TORONTO IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH INDIE WEEK AND THE UNDERGROUND GARAGE
The Wilderness is a Toronto based experimental rock outfit known for their rapturous and festive live shows.
Comprising of men-about-town, Lee Piazza (lead vocals), Nate Lyons-Fisher (guitar/synth), Jay Organek (bass), Chris Mason (drums/synth) and Jamie Lefebvre (guitar/vocals), they draw influences from artists such as Talking Heads, Joy Division, Holy Fuck and Sonic Youth. They've share the stage with many and varied Toronto acts such as The Ruby Spirit, The Lovely Killbots, Krupke, La Casa Muerte and Whale Tooth.
There is definitely a sense of community for The Wilderness, that which they're quickly growing after their stellar release of debut album, .272. The gents launched the album to a rapturous (and sell-out) crowd and rave reviews and previews from the likes of She Does The City, Two Way Monologues, Panic Manual and BlogTO. in Toronto this past November. In true The Wilderness fashion there was a bucketload of glitter and unabashed madness.
The five song album was produced by Chris Mason & mixed by Dean Marino of Chemical Sound. Over a year in the making, this release aspires to be a static representation of the sound they have developed over years of revelrous and frantic live performances.
Tune in again!
