Tulsa, Oklahoma band Wilderado have announced that their new album, Talker, will be released on September 20th via Bright Antenna Records. 

Wilderado — consisting of Max Rainer (lead singer, guitarist), Tyler Wimpee (guitarist, vocals), Justin Kila (drums) – recorded Talker in Norman, Oklahoma with producers Chad Copelin (Sufjan Stevens, SYML) and James McAlister (Gracie Abrams, The National). When asked about the new LP, Rainer shared, “I’m proud to say we made an album that feels like home and weathers who we are.”

Alongside the album announcement, Wilderado have shared the title-track “Talker” today. It’s a new acoustic-tinged single taps into the band’s Oklahoma roots while showcasing Rainer’s emotive vocals.

Last but certainly not least, Wilderado have announced their plans for a fall headlining tour, adding to their already extensive touring plans that has them out all June and July, before headlining to Chicago to play Lollapalooza in August. The new dates are for the entire month of October, culminating with a headline show in their hometown at Cain’s Ballroom on October 26th with direct support from Josiah & The Bonnevilles. All information on tickets can be found here.

“Talker” joins a few album tracks that have already been released ahead of the sophomore LP. February brought the double single “Sometimes” b/w “Tomorrow,” and at the end of 2023, the band released “In Between” – a single that saw several alternate versions, one featuring guest vocals from Matt Berninger of The National and one with a few fellow Oklahomans including folk/Americana artist Ken Pomeroy on vocal and guitar and Muskrat Jones (Colter Wall) on pedal steel.
