Just in time for the start of the MLB regular season, ESPN Music is happy to premiere the music video for Wildways’ newest single, “3 Seconds to Go.” Donning their own signature pinstripe jerseys, the Russian hardcore outfit showcases their love of baseball and good breakdown.
ESPN Music caught up with the lead singer of Wildways, Toli, to talk about the band’s early infatuation with the iconic American sport.
"In Russia we always watched American baseball and dreamed about playing for a team like the Yankees or Dodgers,” he said. “Now we all play in a band which feels like a team.”
In their single, Wildways aimed to capture the excitement of the final moments of a baseball game.
“In ‘3 Seconds To Go’ we decided to write a song about the last 3 seconds of a baseball game. Bases loaded, 9th inning, 2 strikes and the last pitch is being thrown,” Toli told ESPN Music. “While those 3 seconds feel like an eternity, it comes out to only 3 seconds that could either make or break your team. That is why we love baseball, and are excited to write a song about that moment."
No stranger to the American hardcore scene, Wildways has toured with music giants like Asking Alexandria and Blessthefall, among esteemed others.
Wildways latest release, Into the Wild, is available in stores and on streaming services now.
