Wilder. Premiere New Single “See Through”

Wilder. vocalist/guitarist Stephen Ramos shares, “‘See Through’ is about those people who put up a facade and act like they have it all together. Nick and I have both experienced people in our lives that have tried to have a say in how we live our lives. People who we confided in but have now shown their true colors.
