Wilson's second album is due out June 30


Detroit rockers Wilson have been busy lately. The band just toured Europe and the United Kingdom with Halestorm and Nothing More and also found time to put together a second full-length album.

Right to Rise is due out June 30 on Razor and Tie. The record is a follow up to their debut, Full Blast Fuckery, and fans can expect something a little different from this new amalgam. 

According to a release, the band's two main writers, vocalist Chad Nicefield and guitarist Jason Spencer, worked with the entire group as well as a producer to craft the new record. Written and recorded in both Detroit and Atlanta, Georgia, word is Right to Rise will still capture that infectious live energy the group is known for. 

To promote the new record, Wilson will head out to a North American tour with Nothing More. The tour includes a stop in Lansing on June 5 and as well as an "album release party show" at the Crofoot on July 27.
