Wildstreet, 'Poison Kiss' -- New Video

Posted on Monday, May 9, 2011 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments22 Comments

Wildstreet are bringing back glam! The band has just released a video for the song "Poison Kiss" off the new album Wildstreet II:...Faster...Louder.

The video is basically awesome. Everything about it screams "Look at me, I'm Glam! In your face, 80's inspired, big hair rules Glam!"

And I love it. I love it so much I wish I was in it! Wildstreet is a great band that doesn't hide their passions, allegiances or who they are: they want to be referenced in the same sentence as bands like Bon Jovi and Faster Pussycat, and hallelujah for that.

The opening of "Poison Kiss" sort of reminds me of Kix but once the song gets going, it is clear Wildstreet have carved their own sound into their niche of 80s-influenced metal. And that's the key, right? Be original, while still being true to your heroes? I wish Wildstreet were playing a show in Ohio, soon. Watch:

They just played The Grog Shop in Coventry Ohio about 3 or 4 weeks ago. They weren't the headliners and that was ok because they stole the show n the place cleared out after the rolled up their gear.

Great review of the video...I totally agree. Was lucky enough to meet and see they guys in action during SXSW this year in Austin, TX...they totally rocked it out and this video is a clear sign that they are going places!

....To whoever posted the comment about the grog shop, you must have been high as piss. The headliner for that show was Switchblade Scarlett (who are label mates with Wild Street) They had just as big a crowd, all credit to Wild Street but they got their ass handed to them by Switchblade, their vocals and guitar work are in a completely different league-

you should probably give them a listen-
