FIRST SINGLE “LONG TIME” OUT TODAY 
LISTEN HERE /WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

With over 200 million streams and a number of upcoming sold out shows, Toronto’s Wild Rivers has established a devoted following with their eloquent and introspective lyrics, genre-fluid melodies, glorious harmonies and captivating live performances.  Now the indie trio is set to release their anticipated sophomore album Sidelines (Nettwerk) on February 4th. 

Sidelines finds the band sonically and lyrically expanding their sound, which imbues pop, rock, indie, and folk into each song’s blueprint. Co-produced  by Peter  Katis (The  National,  Interpol, Sharon  van  Etten)  and  Wild  Rivers, Sidelines  was recorded  in  Connecticut,  Los  Angeles  and  Kingston, Ontario (where the band formed). Wild Rivers is Khalid Yassein [guitar, vocals, keys], Devan Glover [vocals], and Andrew Oliver [lead guitar, synths]. Pre-order SidelinesHERE. 
 
First single “Long Time” embodies the notion that emotions often come with a timeline of their own. The band shares, ‘This idea came out of getting an unexpected call from an ex-lover. Your conscious, mature brain might tell you that you’re over something, and then in a moment, you’re right back to the place you were before. Watch the compelling video HERE.
 
Sidelines finds the band evolving both individually and collectively, growing up and navigating new and unfamiliar territory. “A lot of [Sidelines] is about perspective and longing to be somewhere that you’re not, or trying to figure out how to get to a place that you want to be, whether it’s physically, emotionally,” says Glover. The songs on Sidelines deftly personify those feelings, while yearning about young love on “Neon Stars” and musing on depression on “Bedrock.”  However, Sidelines is not without levity, clearly evidenced by the sing-along melody and breezy rhythm of “Stubborn Heart” and the humorous, upbeat “Weatherman.”
 
Wild Rivers first caught audiences’ attention with their 2016 self-titled debut, followed by their acclaimed EPs, 2018’s Eighty-Eight and 2020’s Songs To Break Up To. Now the band are set to begin their extensive fall tour on September 10 in Boulder, CO before finishing in Minneapolis, MN on October 10. Their live shows are selling out quickly, with sold out dates in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, San Diego, Boulder and more every day. New dates have been added as well.
