October 27, 2016 — (Burbank, CA) — The Wild Feathers will release their first official live album — Live at the Ryman — via Warner Bros. Records on Record Store Day’s Black Friday, November 25th. This 2-LP, vinyl set captures the band at their electric best during their triumphant, sold-out homecoming show at the fabled Ryman Auditorium on June 25th, 2016, marking the final date of the tour in support of band’s acclaimed album Lonely Is A Lifetime. The 17-track vinyl version is limited to 3,000 copies and available exclusively at participating independent record stores. Stores near you can be found at www.recordstoreday.com.  The CD and digital version will be released on December 16th.  Live at the Ryman includes songs from Lonely Is A Lifetime and The Wild Feathers’ 2013 self-titled debut.

The Wild Feathers are one of the most respected bands on the live circuit today due to their formidable songwriting chops, soulful vocals and a penchant for guitar-driven, melodic sensibilities (they have three gifted songwriters & lead vocalists within their ranks) and reputation as a powerful live band. For the past few years, TWF have toured the world nearly non-stop and have won the hearts of critical and fans each time they perform:

The Wild Feathers… harmony-heavy and guitar-filled, like the soundtrack to a road trip across Middle America.” – Rolling Stone

“The Wild Feathers released their second album, ‘Lonely Is A Lifetime.’  With three singers, its easy to draw vocals  comparisons to Crosby, Stills & Nash, while the electric guitar work reminds one of Neil Young and Pink Floyd.” —  USA Today

“The Wild Feathers have a way of channeling the influential spirit of their musical predecessors, creating a feeling of familiarity that never feels apologetic.” — FLOOD

With the purchase of Live At The Ryman, as well as an additional item from the shop, guests will receive a limited-edition poster signed by the band. (A different poster will be available each night.) The band’s intention is to support Earnest Tubb Record Shop, a local, independent institution for the past 70 years.

The track-listing for Live at the Ryman is as follows:

Help Me Out
