wild type droid arrived in December via the band’s own label, Failure Music. rolling stone called the 10-song collection “incredibly vast,” guitar world described the album as “one of the most inspiring alternative guitar records to arrive in 2021”, and Paste Magazine said the trio “make a defining statement for their career”.
