Wakefield are back with a brand new album entitled, "Which Side Are You On?" Their new album is scheduled for release on May 17th, through Jive Records. They just finished shooting for their new single, "C'mon Baby," check it out:
Wakefield's "Which Side Are You On?" is the sound of a band maturing, fast. Where some bands go on tour, this one went to school. Between hearing the Beatles inspired "C'mon Baby," which changes time signatures between the chorus and verses but still manages to be as hooky as a tackle box, or the smart riffs and layered harmonies of "Quietly Complaining," you'd be forgiven for wondering if this really is the same band that debuted with the buoyant pop-punk of American Made not long ago, in 2003.
Ryan Escolopio and J.D Tennyson, the band's singer and lead guitarist, first teamed up as high school freshman with the addition of Ryan's brother Aaron, former Good Charlotte drummer, and cousin Mike Schoolden on bass. After years of playing in cover bands and booking their own tours, they had a serious talk to discuss their goals.
