Following the success of their self-recorded debut EP, Pillow Talk, Austin natives Wild Child have opted to remain indie for their follow-up, The Runaround. This time, however, with a sturdy fan base at their backs, Wild Child was able to cover recording costs and bring Ben Kweller on as a producer by running a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign this past winter.
The Runaround drops late this summer, and in anticipation the band be will hitting the road for a cross-country tour featuring their good friends and Austin mainstays Shakey Graves and Marmalakes. The suitably titled “Outside City Limits Tour” will hit the Hamilton in Washington D.C. on June 25th. Expect all sorts of collaboration between the three groups. Grab your tickets here.
We had the chance to ask Wild Child some questions about the tour, the Kickstarter campaign and working with Ben Kweller. Check out what they have to say after the jump.
