Published Jul 18, 2013The Wilderness of Manitoba may have snubbed their home and native land on the release of the US-exclusive The Leslieville Sessions EP, but they did let Exclaim! in to the session to watch them record two of their hits, neither of which ended up on the EP. We released the first video back in March, and we finally have the second part for your viewing pleasure.
The four-piece performed "Summer Fires" from their 2011 album, When You Left The Fire, featuring an extended intro, crashing guitars, drums, and violins, and vocalists Will Whitwham and Amanda Balsys singing in harmony.
Watch the performance below. The band will be performing in Ontario throughout the summer, with stops at Guelph's Hillside Festival on July 28, Simcoe's Rotary Friendship Fest on August 5, Sarnia's Festival of Good Things on August 31, and a free show at Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square on September 16.
