Wildhearts new album

May 5, 2019 12:21 pm

Today The Wildhearts are proud to announce the release of Renaissance Men, their first full-length studio album in 10 years on Graphite Records.

“It’s The Wildhearts remembering what they do best” –  9 out 10, hailed Classic Rock, with Metal Hammer saying Renaissance Men is “the best thing they’ve made since their genius / batshit crazy debut, Earth Vs The Wildhearts, back in 1993. Actually, thats not true. It might be better.” While Planet Rock Magazine gave the album 5 stars and Vive Le Rock gave 10 out 10.

To celebrate the release of Renaissance Men, The Wildhearts unveil a NSFW video for the new single Let Em Go: https://youtu.be/hgwJf6vxXBY

Let Em Go is a song about ridding your life of wankers. The Wildhearts feel it is healthy to demand quality friendship and get rid of all the shit from your life.” – The Wildhearts.

The Wildhearts classic line up of Ginger, CJ, Ritchie and Danny, recorded the energetic and diverse ‘Renaissance Men’ at the Treehouse Studio. Produced by Jim Pinder  ‘Renaissance Men’ finds The Wildhearts at their full creative tilt delivering hard-hitting, retooled classic rock with a modern twist.  Bristling riffs and jagged, riotous hooks are their poison and the 10 songs, including the radio hits Dislocated and Let Em Go are the perfect manifestation of the band’s immutable wit, charm and righteous anger.

The album cover for ‘Renaissance Men’ was painted by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Iced Earth, Sodom).

The honest and irresistible ‘Renaissance Men is an unequivocal triumph, which encapsulates and distills perfectly The Wildhearts’ live energy.

The album is available in usual CD and vinyl formats, with T-Shirt bundles available, plus limited edition orange cassette tape and a yellow vinyl exclusive to independent retailers.
