Austin, TX’s Wild Child debuted a Ra Ra Riot remix of their song “Bullets” this morning. “Bullets” is off the band’s new album Fools, released in October via Dualtone Records.

Wild Child – the core duo of Kelsey Wilson (violin/vocals) and Alexander Beggins (ukulele/vocals) together with their band – have also announced a new set of headlining tour dates this December, beginning on the 1st in Denver, CO and wrapping up on the 14th in San Diego, CA. The tour includes a December 13th Los Angeles, CA show at The Troubadour. The band is currently on a summer run that includes a stop at the Newport Folk Festival this Friday, July 22nd and at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL next Thursday, July 28th.

Fools follows the release of 2011’s Pillow Talk and 2013’s The Runaround. “We’re about to live day to day for a long time, and our relationships are going to fall apart,” Wilson says. “And there’s nothing we can do about it. So, the record is also about letting go of expectations, just playing the fool. Fools is a release–a blind step out.”
