Wilson Premiere Rage Against The Machine Cover

Detroit rock band Wilson has just released their cover of Rage Against The Machine’s “Sleep Now In The Fire”. The relatable track was released in light of the recent Presidential election and current political tone. Listen to the explosive cover HERE.  Also released was their cover of Nazareth’s “Hair of the Dog”, which many of their fans have enjoyed as part of their live set.

Frontman Chad Nicefield explains, “Rage was a pivotal musical influence of ours as we were growing up. The ferocity their music created in us carries on well into our adulthood. Today they are just as relevant as they were years ago. America needs a wake-up call, once again. We as a culture of humans on this planet need a heavy dose of humanity. In these trying times it is important to us not only as a band but AS HUMANS that we find light in this darkness. TOGETHER AS ONE. Wake up and rage with us!”

Wilson has been touring nonstop in support of last year’s sophomore release Right to Rise. The band has shared the stage with Halestorm, Nothing More, Five Finger Death Punch, We Came As Romans, Texas Hippie Coalition, and Megadeath; hitting all the major rock festivals along the way. The rockers will finish the year on the road supporting Steel Panther (all tour dates are listed below).

Right to Rise is available for purchase on iTunes.
