Panic State Records has released ‘livelearnlove’, the debut EP from STAY WILD, new melodic hardcore punk rock band from Apple Valley.

Stay Wild are intersectional feminists, strong supporters of the LGBTQ community, animal rights advocates and complete goofs who laugh at their own jokes. That is Stay Wild in a boisterous nutshell. Their exuberant live performance paired with a wide range of song subjects like rape culture, consumerism, and white privilege, they have carved their own unique form of energetic, veracious socio-political music into the realm of hardcore and punk rock.
Residing in Apple Valley, CA, the band began to gain momentum after a name change and debut EP in 2013. Shortly after the departure of their original drummer the following year, Chris Davis joined the remaining two founding members and went into The Earth Capital in Los Angeles to record their next EP, Pacemaker.
The three wrapped up a West coast tour in 2015 and decided to team up with Paul Miner to create five songs for a new EP. After two weekends at Buzzbomb Studios in Anaheim, CA, the recording process was complete.
