Why did they choose the name The Wild?

Ever wonder where some bands come up with their band names? Well, we do, and we’re sick of sitting around scratching our heads about it. We’re hitting the streets (aka. “Internet”) to find the origins behind some of the more bizarre, intriguing or just plain random band names in the scene. Every now and then, we’ll pull back the curtain on a different band and this week it’s Atlanta folk/punk band The Wild. Here’s vocalist Witt Wisebram:

The band started soon after I had finished college, and I was wondering about what I was going to do. I guess ‘The Wild’ just popped into my head, and I thought the term ‘wild’ encompassed exactly what I wanted to feel and how I wanted to live my life. It also implies a natural element, like a ‘wild place,’ which have always been really inspiring to me. It’s how I want people to feel at our shows and when they listen to our music… like they are free, inspired, and crazy. It’s also partly borrowed from the title of one of my favorite albums… Bruce Springsteen’s ‘the wild, the innocent, and the e street shuffle.’
