After its world premiere earlier this week on Sirius XM’s ALT Nation, “Out Of Style”, the latest single from alt-rockers The Wrecks is available for fans to stream today. This heart-pounding track showcases the Los Angeles-based band’s mission to push alt-rock forward, fusing electric guitars with tongue-in-cheek, spoken-word verses and an explosive chorus. “Out Of Style” encapsulates everything from The Wrecks that their fans have come to love.
Whether he’s boasting about the LED lights in his room or blaming his self-sabotage on a love that fell apart, frontman Nick Anderson spills his lyrics out like a diary entry. “I was laughing as I wrote this song. I wanted to come across as the butt-end of the joke, while marrying pettiness to a thin sense of self-awareness.,” shares Anderson. “‘Out Of Style’ lives in the moment of bitterness after a toxic break-up, but before closure has set in. Neither party will let it go, and the motto becomes, ‘I am doing better now, and you are not – because that’s what I need to believe.’ I don’t necessarily react to my relationships this way anymore, but I think deep down everyone recognizes those feelings of jealousy, resentment, and envy.”
The Wrecks have been refining their sound for years, but are gearing up to release one of 2020’s most highly anticipated debut albums in alternative rock. Led by vocalist/producer Nick Anderson and rounded out by Aaron Kelley (bass), Nick “Schmizz” Schmidt (guitar) and Billy Nally (drums), The Wrecks are putting the final touches on the forthcoming release and can’t wait to share it with fans.
The Wrecks formed in 2015 in Thousand Oaks, CA. With heavy influences from The Pixies, The Strokes, and Weezer, they snuck into a recording studio to self-produce their debut EP, We Are The Wrecks. The group’s 2018 follow-up, ‘Panic Vertigo,’ earned similar acclaim, with Ones To Watch hailing the four-piece as “indie rock’s best kept-secret” and Billboard calling them “as authentic and honest as possible.” Since then, the band has secured a number of nationwide tours while opening for bands such as Nothing But Thieves, Silversun Pickups, The Struts, New Politics, Paramore, and All Time Low.
The Wrecks were set to hit the road this Spring with The Driver Era on a massive North American tour. At this time, all dates have been postponed and fans can be ready to see more dates announced as soon as possible.
