DREAMLAND features their well-received current single “Throw Down Your Guns.” The video premiered on NPR Music last month (watch it here: http://smarturl.it/TDYGVideo.) Self-directed by Elliot Bergman and produced by MAAVVEN, the video features the Chicago Children’s Choir as well as Chicago based footwork crew The ERA.  Wild Belle recently performed “Throw Down Your Guns” live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, with Fallon enthusiastically touting the band in his opening monologue (watch it here: http://smarturl.it/TDYGFallon).  “Throw Down Your Guns” has already made its presence known on Triple A radio and is currently impacting Alternative Radio.  This week, the band was named by music video site VuHaus as their Artist of The Week, with vuhaus.com featuring Wild Belle performance sessions from premiere public radio outlets WFUV in New York and KXT in Dallas.

The first track released from the new album was “Giving Up On You.” Most recently, Wild Belle shared the video for their newest release, “Our Love Will Survive,” which was filmed in Jamaica (watch it here: http://smarturl.it/OurLoveWillVideo). The clip was helmed by director/multimedia artist Philippa Price, who has worked with Rihanna and Pharrell, among others.

Wild Belle revealed the album’s cover art in March, comprised of a photo of Natalie taken by Elliot with a vintage Polaroid camera. The album artwork is comprised of Polaroids by the band and photographer Neil Krug. Natalie’s collages grace the covers of all of the single artwork. The bells used in the performance on Fallon were cast from melted down bullet casings and more peace bells are in the works.

The band will hit the road next week on a 21-city headlining tour across the U.S. in support of DREAMLAND.  Performing with their full band in tow, the trek kicks off on April 22nd in Chicago, IL and concludes on May 20th in Minneapolis, MN.
