ICYMI: WAAX release new single THIS EVERYTHING and announce tour dates

RETURN WITH A NEW SINGLE ‘THIS EVERYTHING’

AND ANNOUNCE TOUR DATES

It’s no secret that it’s been something of a bumpy path for WAAX, yet here they stand in 2016 stronger than ever and proud to officially unveil a new single ‘This Everything‘ and announce some tour dates in its support.

12 months on from their debut EP – Holy Sick – and radio success with single ‘I For An Eye’, the founding core trio of Marie DeVita (vocals), Tom Bloomfield (drums) and Ewan Birtwell (guitars) found themselves new compadres in Chris Antolak (guitars) and Tom Griffin (bass) and hit Plutonium Studios with producer Miro Mackie to lay down a new, forthcoming second EP. ‘This Everything’ is just the first taste, a bohemoth of tune that is as much of a new release, as it is a reintroduction to a powerful, emerging band already with notorious live show. With lines like “I got nowhere to be” and the refrain “Moving backwards slowly”, DeVita certainly writes with her feelings on her sleeve and isn’t shy in telling it how it is.


“It’s a song about being overwhelmed by everything at once but not being able to move – or at the very most – move backwards. I felt myself slipping into the dark places I had been in the past. I was isolating myself socially and felt like I didn’t belong anywhere. There’s a tonne of apathy in there – which I feel fundamentally guilty about it, given my situation could have been far worse – but I guess when you’re in that headspace everything in life absolutely sucks. There are glimmers of hope in the line “I don’t give much, but when I do, I give a lot” – it was almost like I wanted the opportunity to warm to someone and offer them something… but I was so scared of being taken advantage of.”

As a band practically built for the festival stage, they’ve already propped up their live show and mowed down rooms at The Blurst of Times, Maroochy Music and Arts Festival and Festival Of The Sun to name a few. These forthcoming shows will cement their early reputation with refined intensity, making good on their promise as one of the best young live bands around.
