    Clouded, with a chance of This Wild Life.

    This Wild Life will issue their debut album Clouded on May 27. You can hear it streaming over at fuse.tv.

    This Wild Life will also perform all summer on the Vans Warped Tour.

    Hailing from Long Beach, California, This Wild Life is duo Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso. Jordan and Del Gross grew up in the tightknit DIY punk scene in Long Beach. They quickly became friends after working at the same musical instrument store, bonding over music of their teens. Soon enough, they started their own pop-punk band and made music together as This Wild Life. They played fast, they played loud and they didn't stand out from the crowd until they did the least "punk" thing possible. It was also bolder than anything in the punk rock rulebook: they got quiet and played acoustically.

    Watch the live version of "Roots and Branches" below.

    The music itself connected with fans, even as it surprised them. They take pride in making music based in hardcore and punk rock, but with wider appeal. In contrast to the harsh music that This Wild Life grew up on, Jordan finds inspiration for his vocals outside the hardcore punk world. "Sara Bareilles is one of my favorites. Maybe people wouldn't expect that." They let their roots show as well, covering Bring Me the Horizon's "Sleepwalking" with a resulting video that currently has 2.75 million views. When asked about the biggest compliment he can receive, Jordan muses it's "You guys sound just like the record when you play live."

    If you dig Ed Sheeran or like A Great Big World, then This Wild Life will drive you wild.
