Wildlife is the second studio album by American post-hardcore band La Dispute, released October 4, 2011, on independent label No Sleep Records. Recording sessions for the album took place primarily at StadiumRed in New York in April 2011. The band members took control of all of the production duties alongside the album’s recording engineers, Andrew Everding and Joseph Pedulla. Wildlife was their last release on No Sleep Records before forming their own record label, Better Living.

La Dispute wrote and recorded Wildlife in pieces to accommodate their intense tour schedule. The album was recorded at two different studios with recording engineers Andrew Everding and Joe Pedulla. They started with the instrumentation of six tracks at Drasik Studios in Chicago; this recording process took place over two weeks. The songwriting featured on the album is distinct from La Dispute's previous releases. La Dispute recorded the remainder of the album in a month in StadiumRed in New York City in April 2011. Joe Pedulla stated that he wanted to give the album a more raw.

At nearly an hour, this album's length is it's biggest weakness. Even though a lot of the lyrics are good and the music drives the emotional themes home perfectly in a lot of places, it's hard to sit through the whole thing without becoming exhausted by the nearly-relentless shouting and hardcore assault. Still, the lyrics ARE pretty damn good, and the music really does drive the emotional themes home in a lot of places, with songs like 'King Park' and 'Edward Benz' utilizing both of these aspects so perfectly that the whole thing is pretty much worth it.
