The final concert by Detroit hard rock band Wilson is being preserved for posterity.
"Thank You, Good Night Live," recorded at the group's Dec. 28, 2019 farewell show at the Crofoot in Pontiac, will be released Jan. 29 on NovelGoot Records. The group has released the opening track from the album, a rendition of the single "Dumptruck" from the show via http://bit.ly/37WjRun.
In a statement, frontman Chad Nicefield -- who co-produced the album with Josh Sobeck -- says that, "I had the show recorded at the time for the purpose of us to listen back to it and hold that moment in our hands and minds forever. I don't think any of us even thought about release a live record at the time." Nicefield says he was convinced by Sobeck's live mix of "Dumptruck."
"One listen to that track and it was clear as could be...the fans deserve to own this moment with us," he explains.
The rest of the 10-track set includes "Wrong Side of History," "Give Em Hell," "Windows Down!," "Summertime Treat (Tasty Nasty)," "The Flood," "All My Friends," "F*** Up My High," "Like a Baller" and "House of F***ery."
Wilson formed during 2010 and during nearly 10 years released, three studio albums and an EP while also touring the globe. Before the final show, Wilson held out some hope that it would not be the last the world would hear from the band, either.
"I don't think Wilson will ever go away permanently," he said. "I'm sure we'll play at something. I can't promise anything, but as long as there's a reason for us to find a place to pop our ugly heads up again in the world there'll be a guiding light back into this situation."
More information and updates about the album will be available via the Wilson Parties pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
