Toronto’s Wilderness of Manitoba have already sunk their teeth into the Canadian and UK markets, but with the American release of their debut album, ‘When You Left the Fire,’ this week, they’re shifting their gaze towards the States and good old lady lucky.

“I’m not worried because I don’t really control these things,” vocalist-guitarist Will Whitwham tells Spinner. “The only thing I can control is playing well, and if we don’t play well then we’re screwing up for everybody. That’s the only thing we can really do.”

That said, Whitwham suspects breaking into the US market will be more grueling than building a presence at home or in the UK.

“Europeans are more patient and the US is musical ADD,” he says. “…It’s hard not to feel that way when you’re bombarded in the US.”
