Will And The Won’ts, who have been spreading their own gospel of Americana-esque folk-inspired rock n’ roll throughout the Los Angeles club scene for the last six years, will release their new full length album, Volume 2, on November 29th.
The trio, which consists of Will Risbourg on guitar and vocals, Gui Bodi on bass, and Andrew Bilotti on drums, focuses on creating simple and lyrically compelling music that is powerfully captivating whether it’s played in someone’s living room or on a festival stage.
Volume 2, a drastic sonic and stylistic departure from their previous release, the aptly-titled Volume 1, features the band’s shift from hard-hitting, lo-fi, bluesy garage rock to country-tinged songs with a clear message. “We drew much more influence from the American folk and country music that I grew up with in Santa Fe, New Mexico,” explains Risbourg who credits artists like Woody Guthrie, Elvis Presley, and The Avett Brothers for creative inspiration. “The songs vary quite a bit in subject matter, ranging from anti-establishment musings and existential struggle to loss of love and the hope to gain it back.”
Will And The Won’ts have distilled the palpable freedom of the expansive wild west into a 10-song collection of notes and verses that will keep you coming back for more. Get ready to hit repeat. A lot.
