THE WRECKS Release Deluxe Edition of Critically-Hailed Sophomore Album ‘Sonder,’ Video for “Normal (Acoustic)” Out Today

“Made up of a handful of love and loss scores, this LP crosses genres in an inaugural way for The Wrecks’ catalogue. From their previously cemented alt-rock sound on tracks like ‘Dystopia’ and ‘Don’t Be Scared’ to a pop-punk twist on the title track, ‘Sonder’ and ‘I Love This Part,’ Sonder is a perfect display of a band honing in on their matured sound.”

“The Wrecks’ mix of ‘don’t quit’ and ‘who cares’ mentality seems to be setting them on the right track.”  – Billboard

“While embracing the spirit of creative experimentation, the band’s growth is evident in this long-awaited, genre-bending eleven-track record.” – Ones To Watch

“This is alt-rock on fire. Burn, babies, burn.” – idobi

Release Deluxe Edition of Critically-Hailed Sophomore Album

Video for “Normal (Acoustic)” Out Today

Back And Better Than Ever Tour Underway

NOVEMBER 4, 2022 (Los Angeles, CA) — Today, alt-pop band The Wrecks share the Deluxe Edition of their critically-hailed June 2022 sophomore album Sonder in tandem with releasing a video for “Normal (Acoustic).” Sonder (Deluxe) collects not only their distinctive witty, frantic genre-bending tracks that made the original album land on Spotify’s Top 10 U.S. Album Charts release week (“Sonder,” “I Love This Part,” “Lone Survivor,” and “Where Are You Now” featuring girlhouse), but also adds two acoustic versions including “Normal (Acoustic)”, two remixes done by Molly Otto and new originals entitled “Wish I Never Met You” and “Soapbox.”

With the lyrics such as “I’m getting used to your silenceyou can’t hurt me like I can” the original version of “Normal” is undoubtedly forlorn, but the newly released acoustic version – with vocalist/producer Nick Anderson’s lingering vocals – renews the anguish. Directed by Matthew Heywood (who’s been on tour with the band), the video for the grief-stricken “Normal (Acoustic)” was filmed this week in Carrboro, NC at Cat’s Cradle. “It was such a fun venue and city to play,” Anderson adds.

Sonder (Deluxe) arrives right as the band are in the midst of their Back And Better Than Ever Tour which kicked off with a performance at Sonoma Harvest Festival in Sonoma, CA on October 9 and features support from CARR and Arlie. The tour has already made its way through cities such as Las Vegas, Boulder, Madison, Detroit, and Athens with shows coming up in Tampa, Houston, Fort Worth, Tucson, and more before concluding on November 19 at Majestic Theater in Ventura, CA. Tickets and VIP can be found at

“Feels good to finally have the Deluxe out,” Anderson exclaims. “I went from the first part of this tour in the Summer straight into finishing this and then right into the Fall tour (where I finished a lot of the record during the first few days).” 

Leading up to their tour kick off, the band released the blustering alt pop single “Things You Make Me Do” which Anderson says is about being in an inescapable one-way relationship.

The Wrecks began as vocalist/producer Nick Anderson’s sole endeavor and has since been rounded out by Aaron Kelley (bass), Nick “Schmizz” Schmidt (guitar) and Billy Nally (drums). Sonder follows the release of the band’s 2016 debut EP We Are The Wrecks (their first single “Favorite Liar” currently has 42 million+ streams on Spotify), their 2018 Panic Vertigo EP, their 2020 Static EP as well as their 2020 debut LP Infinitely Ordinary (58 million+ streams on Spotify).

The Wrecks continue to rack up the massive fan base that has already given their top five singles on Spotify over 80 million listens. Poised for a wide-open road ahead of them, Nick Anderson and The Wrecks continue to charge into the limelight. Not too shabby for a kid from Wellsville, just two hours south of nowhere. 

The Wrecks‘ Sonder (Deluxe) is out today, November 4, 2022via Big Noise. Tickets for The Wrecks‘ Back And Better Than Ever Tour can be found at
