Twin Peaks Share "I Found A New Way" Video; 'Wild Onion' Out Now!



Twin Peaks' new record, Wild Onion, is finally out this week! We're so excited, we can hardly contain ourselves. It is a jubilant album that Noisey calls "really fun, classic-feeling garage rock that transcends news cycles" and Pitchfork declares is "a fresh testament to their talent."  Consequence of Sound writes that "the band's youthfulness might be their biggest weapon," and it's that youthful wisdom that inspires their new video for the song "I Found A New Way," premiered today on Billboard.  With intensely nostalgic vibes a-plenty, the video, directed by Ryan Ohm, may recall the coming-of-age classic The Sandlot. Root for our boys as they take on the evil red team!


Twin Peaks will be taking to the road to celebrate the release ofWild Onion, with a headline tour that begins this month and now includes dates through November.  Tour highlights include the band's largest show to date at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, as well as festival stops at FYF FestivalPygmalion Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest

"Rock 'n' roll: dead? Nah dawg! Twin Peaks are carrying that torch." - Stereogum [BAND TO WATCH]

"With its sophomore effort Wild Onion, a nostalgia-imbued, 16-song collection of blitzing garage-rock and sunny power-pop, Twin Peaks can finally claim to have resoundingly earned the hype." - AV Club

"The simple fact is that their sophomore album, Wild Onion, out today, is just really fun, classic-feeling garage rock that transcends news cycles." - Noisey

"A fresh testament to their talent." - Pitchfork

"The band rises to the challenge with a solid and diverse collection of tunes that run the pop rock gamut...Rather than a barrier, the band's youthfulness might be their biggest weapon. They've (hopefully) got years ahead of them still, and listening to Wild Onion just makes you hungry to see what else they have in store." - Consequence of Sound

"These guys are here to have fun, and their faculty for it might rankle some elders. But in America's Midwest, sacred cows are for the tipping, so just sit back and make note of every touchstone trodden while these youngsters blow it all out on mostly tuned guitars." - Under The Radar

"This doesn't feel like yet more easy-trash, pool party punk (though it is that, and good at it), but something that has a preternatural songwriting zing and energy not predicated on just the fumbling charm of a stained '80s metal t-shirt and Ronettes knowledge, but actual, like charm. Let's call it the New Slop-timism." - CMJ
