The band began work on their single “Raise Hell” after Rocklahoma. Released in December 2017, it ushered in a new period for the band. They headlined Irving Plaza for the single’s release party, and was handpicked by Dorothy to open for her New York City tour date at The Bowery Ballroom. In February 2018, the band released a lyric/concert video for “Raise Hell.” Wildstreet spent the remainder of 2018 in the studio recording Wildstreet III. They performed regional tour dates/festival dates. Highlights include: opening for Sebastian Bach and Escape The Fate. In March, the band sold out The Knitting Factory Brooklyn and then headed out on their first tour in Europe, playing 10 shows in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany, including Sleaze Fest 2019in Bochum, Germany. Upon returning to NYC, Wildstreet filmed the official music video for “Tennessee Cocaine.” In July, they headlined a sold out NYC show at Saint Vitus and headed out for a short West Coast tour which included stops at The Whisky-agogo and Great American Music Hall.

Here is what press is saying…….
Armed with big choruses, blazing guitar solos, and powerful melodies, WILDSTREET is a sex-fueled rock n roll explosion beckoning the glory days of 80s arena rock.- Twelv Magazine
“They (Dorothy) found the most awesome opening band, WILDSTREET, who warmed
“If New York City rockers Wildstreet don’t get your heart pumping and feet moving. you should go see the doctor because I’m pretty sure you could be considered legally dead…”- HARD ROCK NIGHTS
“Wildstreet’s name personifies the entire band in sound and appearance—wild. With singer Eric Jayk’s crazy hair/attire, one might pass them by as an 80s gimmick, but they would be missing a hell of a show. The band put on an energetic performance, rallying the crowd like most bands only wish they could do!- Intellectual Masturbation
“The band Wildstreet is one of my absolute favorites. They are the complete embodiment of every thing I love about music.”- Craig Wettner
“Do you wanna have a good time, do you wanna party? Wildstreet is the perfect party starter, their mix of straight ahead non compromising hard rock and singalong choruses makes them easy to love. Let there be rock! ”- Kaj Roth www.melodic.net
