MAY 18, 2020 – LOS ANGELES, CA – Alt-rockers The Wrecks are sharing a new lyric video for the thrashing, upbeat and energetic track “This Life I Have” with fans today. “The structure is whack: There’s no chorus, and the lyrics sound like stream-of-consciousness college slam poetry. But I love this song,” shared vocalist/producer Nick Anderson in a recent interview with Billboard. “We played it live for a year-and-a-half before this album even came out. It’s the only song people would mosh to during our set, even though they’d never heard it. It was great; I got to yell and scream about my insecurities and depression to kids who weren’t listening — just like all my favorite punk/pop-punk bands growing up.” Fans can stream the new video today at https://youtu.be/JKkiXrs421k.
“This Life I Have” is the most recent single from the band’s debut full-length album, Infinitely Ordinary. Released earlier this month via Big Noise, Infinitely Ordinary is the culmination of over two years of hard work. Made up of 8 honest tracks that fully encompass the Los Angeles-based quartet’s desire for perfection, it is anything but ordinary.
Led by Anderson and rounded out by Aaron Kelley (bass), Nick “Schmizz” Schmidt (guitar) and Billy Nally (drums), The Wrecks have created an album that jumps from the anxiety-inducing “Freaking Out” to the self-sabotage anthem “Fvck Somebody”, the heart-pounding “Out Of Style,” to the introspective ballads title track – and throughout it all, Anderson had one goal in mind. “Music has to be honest for me, before anything else,” he says. “All of our songs are through stories, the anecdotes all happened-that’s the only way I know how to write something that feels impactful.”
Fans can order exclusive merch bundles as well as stream Infinitely Ordinary via Big Noise today at https://thewrecks.ffm.to/infinitelyordinary.
Fans had the chance to hear songs from the album live for the first time over the weekend when the band took the stage at the Block By Blockwest Festival.

Proceeds from Block By Blockwest went to the Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund. Fans can relive the festival at http://www.blockbyblockwest.com/.
The Wrecks formed in 2015 in Thousand Oaks, CA. With heavy influences from The Pixies, The Strokes, and Weezer, they snuck into a recording studio to self-produce their debut EP, We Are The Wrecks. The group’s 2018 follow-up, Panic Vertigo, earned similar acclaim, with Ones To Watch hailing the four-piece as “indie rock’s best kept-secret” and Billboard calling them “as authentic and honest as possible.” Since then, the band has secured a number of nationwide tours while opening for bands such as Nothing But Thieves, Silversun Pickups, The Struts, New Politics, Paramore, and All Time Low.
