New York City’s Wilding Incident has announced their new EP, Prey For The Wolfpack. The politically charged hardcore band is also sharing the first taste from the new EP with single “That Cell” (listen below).

The band takes its name from the Central Park Jogger case and with song titles like “Stop & Frisk” and “Billy Club.” Wilding Incident is here to make a statement. In dark times like the present, Wilding Incident appear through the smoke and ash with their Prey For The Wolfpack EP, which will be released on Reaper Records on cassette, vinyl and digital on April 27th. The EP is now available for pre-order on www.reaper-records.com.

Wilding Incident is one of the New York Hardcore scene’s most revered new bands; with an aggressive finesse and artful flare that distills the very essence from which Hardcore was born.

It’s of no coincidence that Wilding Incident so adeptly captures Hardcore’s roots as the band is full of New York City’s music scene culture. Danny “Ezec” Singer (vocals) is the notorious frontman of Crown Of Thornz and Skarhead and Jimmy Williams (drums) carries a distinct veteran’s pedigree with his drumming and frontman roles in Nausea and Maximum Penalty respectively. Williams and Singer are complemented by White Mandingos co-founder Sacha Jenkins (guitar) and producer/engineer Noah Rubin (bass) who has worked with groups as diverse as Wu-Tang Clan and Das Oath. Since their 2014 debut at Brooklyn’s Afropunk festival, Wilding Incident has played with multiple generations of Hardcore stalwarts like the Cro-Mags, Bad Brains/The Regulators, Burn, H2O, Turnstile and Madball. Says In Effect Hardcore zine, “I got their frontman Ezec down as one of the top 5 guys in Hardcore.”

Lyrically, the band is politically charged, taking it’s name from the Central Park Jogger case, wherein five young men of color were sent to prison for a horrible crime they didn’t commit. The unfortunate happening was referred to as The Wilding Incident, and in the time since, the term “wilding” has been used to describe a gathering of seemingly “dangerous” youths.

Wilding Incident will drop their debut EP, Prey For The Wolfpack, on 4/25 via Reaper Records. The self-produced release was recorded in Brooklyn over the last year, mixed bi-coastal, and hones a distinctive aesthetic as authentic as the city streets its was birthed on.
