The four members of The Wildbirds are true wild men. They wrote their first set of demos as a band in 2006 holed up in a tiny cabin on a logging road, hunting and fishing for food. After the band demoed the songs and sent them around, acclaimed producer Greg Fidelman (U2, Green Day, Tom Petty), and engineer Greg Gordon (Oasis, Hot Hot Heat, JET) helped the band clean up a debut record in Los Angeles. The Wildbirds then sold everything they owned, converted a small bus to run on used fryer grease, and made the bus their home. This has been the everyday life for these four quasi-gentlemen (and one lady, Emily, who is lovingly called "the fifth member"), for about 35,000 miles and five months far. Since the release of Golden Daze in August, The Wildbirds have done three full U.S. tours, a trek from Eastern to Western Canada, and will continue at this pace through mid 2008, including a venture across the pond early next year.
