WAAX have amassed industry attention and a fervent fan-base from around the globe in recent years, thanks to their killer, independently-released EP’s Holy Sick (2015) and Wild & Weak (2017), as well as barnstorming singles like ‘Same Same,’ ‘Wold & Weak,’ and ‘I For An Eye’ plus a relentless touring schedule.
In the past 18 months, WAAX has played more than 60 shows including support slots with Aussie staples Violent Soho, Dune Rats and Ecca Vandal as well as international heavyweights Fall Out Boy (US), Kim Gordon (US), Guitarwolf (Japan), UPSET (ex-Vivian Girls, Best Coast and Hole members) and upcoming Canadian punk buddies White Lung. They have also completed two sold-out Australian headline tours. As a band practically built for the festival stage, they were enlisted for a stack of major festivals including Falls Festival, The Plot, Yours & Owls, Secret Garden as well as The Smith Street Band’s Pool House Party.
This is a band to watch!
- “Sounding smoother and yet more emotionally raw than ever.” – Bombshellzine
- “With a moving quiver to her voice, she roars into one of WAAX’s best guitar-fuelled choruses yet.” – triple j
- “While WAAX are vibing with a slightly more subdued take on their melodic punk rock format here, ‘Labrador‘ is still a brutally poignant track about feeling worthless in the wake of interpersonal fallouts.” – Hysteria Mag
