Wilson guitarist Kyle Landry has announced that he is leaving the band. His final show with the group will take place on July 13 at the Riff Fest in Clarkston, MI.
Landry said the following:
“HELLO ALL – Kyle Landry here and I have some news for all our amazing fans.
The past 9 years has been the greatest adventure I could have ever dreamt up. I wouldn’t trade the memories I have made with each of you for anything. However, I have decided to take my life in a different direction and I will no longer be a member of Wilson.
This decision has been well thought-out, and it did not come easy. All of my Wilson brothers have been fully supportive and understanding of my departure. There are no hard feelings. Music will always be a huge part of my life and I will continue to make songs to share with my friends and family forever.
With that said, Riff Fest this Saturday, July 13th, will be my last performance with Wilson. Thank you all for your support along the way and hopefully we will see you there!”

Wilson have released a new remix of “Fuck Up My High” featuring Hyro The Hero. The original version appears on the band’s latest album “Tasty Nasty.”
Wilson’s Chad Nicefield commented:
“When you’re on the come up in our genre, I find it very rare for artists to support other artists even when they are seemingly walking in the same shoes. Specifically, when artists tour together there’s always a sense of getting the ‘one up’ on your peers.
Everyone seems to be vying for that ‘next big thing’ look and seem to forget the reason why we wanted do this…for the music, the fans, to be a part of something bigger than yourself. Not some big dumb rockstar ego. Hyro and Wilson wanted to lead by example and remind our community that what makes Rock N Roll so great is just that, community! So don’t Fuck Up Our High!”
Hyro The Hero added:
“So excited to rock a remix on such a great song. My verse is epic on an epic song. It’s LIT!”
