Wild Adriatic to Release Debut Full Length
Big Suspicious on January 14, 2014
Watch the Video for "Lonely" Now
Saratoga Springs, NY rock 'n' soul trio Wild Adriatic have announced that they will self-release their debut album Big Suspicious on January 21, 2014.  Calling to mind the soulful, dynamic sounds of 70s giants such as Led Zeppelin and Rush's early years, the band have won early acclaim from places such as USA Today who named Wild Adriatic "an act to get behind" in 2013.
Watch the video for new single "Lonely":
Though the band was founded in 2011, drummer Mateo Vosganian and vocalist/guitarist Travis Gray grew up together in the same neighborhood and grew up playing in bands together in Saratoga Springs.  The two parted ways after high school but eventually found themselves back home playing music together again, searching for a bassist to complete their line-up.  One night while Mateo drank beers with friend Rich Derbyshire, who he knew as the lead guitarist in a local hardcore band, the conversation turned to Wild Adriatic's search for a bassist.  Rich asked to audition for the band, despite never having played bass before, and as taken aback as Mateo and Travis were, they agreed to let him - and haven't looked back since.  
In the short time they've been together, Wild Adriatic has played with everyone from Phantogram to Deer Tick to Third Eye Blind to Matt & Kim and performed at SXSW, CMJ and Gathering of the Vibes.  Big Suspicious is the follow- up to 2012's Lock & Key EP.  The band is currently on tour and planning for a major US tour in 2014 (all tour dates below).
