New album & tour from Australia’s Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes

Australian alt-country/Americana outfit Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes have announced their return to the UK next month including an appearance at Maverick Festival; along with the European release of their fourth album ‘Some Girls (Quite) Like Country Music’ on June 29th 2018. The album opens with the band’s semi-political brand new single ‘I Hope That I’m Wrong’ – in the words of lead singer and songwriter Bryan: “I wrote this song around October 2017. It was about 9 o’clock in the morning, and I walked down the stairs and into the kitchen and I sat down and read the newspaper. The song started playing in my head and it was as though every headline I read triggered a new line or a new verse. I guess it was around the time that the #MeToo movement started, and as soon as I wrote the opening words “Women, do what you must/There’s not a man in the world you can trust” I knew that I wanted that to be the first line anybody hears on the new album (which we were already half way through recording). The song came together so quickly in my head – it was fully formed within minutes, and when I picked up my girlfriend’s guitar which was leaning on the kitchen table, I was already in the right key and could play it from beginning to end. There are songs on this album that I laboured over for months – years in one case – but ‘I Hope that I’m Wrong’ was the opposite. Like a lot of this record, ‘I Hope that I’m Wrong’ was cut live in the studio – we did have a few goes at it, on different days, in different moods, to get the one that felt right – which happened to be the last take we did.”
