Illinois pop punk heroes Wilmette have released “Playing Dead,” the first single off the soon-to-be-announced full-length, due out later this year.

Stream “Playing Dead” on DSPs: https://orcd.co/playingdead.

A video for the track (directed by Alex Zarek) is streaming here: https://youtu.be/0GzS3HvzX4k.

Vocalist Aaron Hailey says, “After a long break from writing, “Playing Dead” was the first song we wrote together in over a year since our previous release. Much of the song came together in the studio, with the help of our producer Seth Henderson at ABG.”

Hailing from the Chicago suburbs, Wilmette combines pop-punk and hardcore with a fresh style that relies on pop hooks, honest lyrics, and strong musicianship. The band’s emphatic debut EP “Anxious Body” was released in 2019 to much acclaim.
