“Do people still use that old aphorism “Shoot for the moon and land in the stars”? Well, Midwest pop-punk mavericks Wilmette have loaded their pop-punk rocketship with the fuel to get them out there.”- Alternative Press
Illinois-based pop-punk band Wilmette is debuting a new music video for the new song “A D D E R A L L,” the first single off the band’s just-announced self-titled EP, out September 25 on Mutant League Records.
The single is now streaming on all digital platforms.

Peyton Day (bass/vocals) tells Alternative Press: “This video is supposed to be the epitome of hindsight in a relationship. As the aliens rummage through the crashed spaceship, they find a log of events that detailed how the astronauts crashed into their planet. They know they were too late in helping, and all they can do is watch the aftermath. Only two-fifths of the group come back, signifying a change in their reality, while the aliens are obviously unscathed.”
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 label debut “Anxious Body” was produced by Seth Henderson at ABG Studios (Knuckle Puck, Real Friends) and mastered by Kris Crummett (Sleeping With Sirens).
