Happy New Year, Stranger Nation!!
What an amazing 2017 was for W·KS! Not only did we release our debut album, Aligned, further advance awareness to the blight that is human trafficking with “Voices,” played so many high-profile gigs (House of Blues, Chicago White Sox Game, Carthage College with Elizabeth Smart, Boerner Botanical Gardens, and more), but we ended the year being voted Best Local Band for the Milwaukee A-List! Thanks to all who voted and for all of the continued support!
2018 looks to be an even more promising and exciting! We'll be spending much of January 2018 in the studio creating our third EP. The first single off this EP is scheduled to be released February 23, 2018. We will be celebrating the release of that single with an exciting bash at Shank Hall with our friends Listening Party and Paladino. Once again, production on this EP will be headed up by Nick Rad at Wire & Vice studios in Wauwatosa, WI. We couldn't be more thrilled!!!
As far as our schedule goes, we kicked off 2018 this past Saturday, January 6th at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, and already have the following fantastic shows on the calendar:
High Noon Saloon in Madison on Tuesday, February 6th. Joining us on stage is The Racing Pulses and Beth Kille Band. We are working on a potential bus trip for this one as well. Stay tuned for more info!
