DS Exclusive: Downway premiere “Wild Ones” off upcoming “Last Chance for More Regrets” LP

Formerly of California-based Sessions Records, Downway (ffo: Goldfinger, Lagwagon) have recently come out of retirement and signed with Thousand Islands Records to release a new album, Last Chance for More Regrets. It drops May 1, and is the band’s first release since their split with Belvedere in 2003.

15 years is a long time to be away from the studio, but all early previews of the new album indicate that Downway, who reformed in 2017 after a lengthy hiatus, haven’t quite lost their touch. Last Chance for More Regrets promises more of the same anthemic 90’s-style melodic skate punk that initially earned them a few stints on the Warped Tour docket, and even a video spot on the historically beloved MTV network, before it was taken over by the Kardashians.

Since the band’s newfound rejuvenation they have toured western Canada as well as Japan, with more Canadian tour dates to look forward to surrounding the release of the upcoming LP. Today, I’m proud to showcase for you all their latest single, “Wild Ones”. If you’re a fan of catchy hooks, poppy harmonies, and energetic palm mute sections to bounce your head to, then this jam is one you may want to consider. You can stream “Wild Ones” as well as view Downway’s fast-approaching tour schedule below. Cheers!
