Wrongchilde Hopelessly romantic and just a touch emotionally twisted, like a John Hughes soundtrack for Donnie Darko, Wrongchilde (Mat Devine of Kill Hannah) has announced his forthcoming album, Gold Blooded, due for release later this year.

Gold Blooded sees Devine keeping his feet firmly planted in his rock roots, but with a flagrant nod to nostalgic pop, experimenting with synths and electronica to create a collection of anthemic tunes fitting for a new generation. From the acoustic sounds of, “Falling In Love Will Kill You,” to the throwback synths of, “Dance To Your Heartbeat,” Gold Blooded is a progressive step forward for the singer/songwriter. The album also features appearances from the likes of Morgan Kibby (M83 and White Sea) as well as guitarist and songwriter, Alain Whyte (Morrissey). In anticipation to the release, Wrongchilde has garnered attention from the likes of NME, Fuse, MTV, AV Club, Ryan Seacrest, Alternative Press, Buzzfeed, Bop + Tigerbeat and OUT Magazine, not to mention hype from well respected outlets in the blogosphere, like The Burning Ear. Lead single from the album, “Falling In Love Will Kill You”, a duet featuring My Chemical Romance frontman, Gerard Way, just recently premiered on Alternative Press, and is the perfect opener. Stylistically, the track sees both artists move away from their traditional sound to a softly spoken track with an almost southern twinge, showcasing a mature shift in their craft and an insight to what’s to come from Devine / Wrongchilde.
