This week’s interview is with THE WILD from Atlanta, Georgia (as well as other parts of the US.) We join THE WILD ATL (Witt, Diana & Dakota) in the backstage basement of the Aggie Theater in Fort Collins where the band is on tour with The Front Bottoms and You Blew It. We talk to the band about  their musical origins, first records, touring with Andrew Jackson Jihad, and working with Laura Jane Grace! We also talk to the band about the loss of their friend Anthony Poynter and how that factored into their new albums, Dreams Are Maps as well as the effects it has had on their lives and careers.

NEXT WEEK: The Front Bottoms!
