Pioneering Boston punk band Nervous Eaters, contemporaries of bands like the Ramones, The Police, Iggy Pop, The Pretenders, and a host of others, has released a new single, “Wild Eyes,” ahead of a new album due out this fall on Little Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records.

Stream the “Wild Eyes” single here:

The single features a B-side of perhaps the band’s most well-known song, 1976’s “Loretta.”

Of the new single, original frontman Steve Cataldo says, “Stevie Van Zandt chose “Wild Eyes” as the first single from our new album Monsters & Angels. A textured, melodic rocker that paints a portrait of a beautiful, complex woman who views life through the lens of her sophisticated imagination.”

The single is accompanied by a new music video, of which Cataldo explains, “Filmmaker Vincent Straggas created a compelling video for “Wild Eyes”. His idea to give the actress a camera through which she can capture passing moments conveys the intent of the song extremely well. She has a distinct, idiosyncratic point of view and experiences the world through inquisitive, open, wild eyes.”

Formed in the mid-70’s, the Nervous Eaters would eventually become the house band for the legendary Boston punk rock club The Rat, where they established themselves as a leading punk rock band in the Northeast, playing with a who’s who of punk and new wave luminaries, including The Police, The Ramones, The Cars, Patti Smith, Dead Boys, Iggy Pop, The Stranglers, Go-Go’s and many others.
