Toronto, Canada, March 25, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Rock band, Across The Board releases their fifth album, “Wild Ones.” Compiling a collection of songs celebrating autonomy and uniqueness, “Wild Ones” is Across The Board’s fourth original project and studio album.
“Using the analogy of the ‘lone wolf’ who strives for independence, yet understands the necessity of ‘the pack’, we’ve explored the power of self-expression with the songs ‘Alpha Wolf,’ ‘Graffiti,’ and ‘Monster,” comments Across the Board frontwoman Jackie Auguste.
“As an uncontrollable, often beautiful, sometimes devastating force on our planet, storms are a part of our world that often dictate massive destruction followed by renewal and regrowth. Our songs ‘Eye Of The Storm’ and ‘All Gone’ use the storm to explore our vulnerability in life to chaos and change. From being a ‘Wild One’ within, tamed by the storm outside, we look to our history for answers and take the refuge in the ‘eye of the storm.'”
With over 600 YouTube videos, three albums and sold-out shows across the country, Across The Board has gained a global following. The recipient of several independent music awards including two gold medal Global Music Awards, four Josie Music Awards, an Indie Music Hall of Fame award, and a Radio Music Award for Best Rock Song, Across The Board has immense online and terrestrial radio airplay, reaching #4 on the Canadian iTunes Rock Charts with the title track of their third album, “Sonic Boom.” Their videos have been selected for major film festivals including Indie Best Films Festival and Alternative Film Festival.
