Following the highly-anticipated release of their sophomore EP ‘The Sound of What Went Wrong’, Brisbane pop-punk icons Waxflower have announced that they will be taking their EP on tour around Australia for ‘The Tour of What Went Wrong’ – landing in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane with special guests The Comfort.
Kicking off the tour in Sydney on June 4, Waxflower will be taking their incredible energy to the stage for another time this year, following their recent support of Trophy Eyes on their extensive national tour.
Known for their high-octane shows and anthemic set-lists, Waxflower are eager to take to the stage to celebrate the release of ‘TSOWWW’ – the culmination of a recent string of singles which are all signalling a bright new era for the band as they delve deeper into nostalgic pop-rock elements from a time where Myspace was king, combined with modern, relatable songwriting and pockets of tantalising electro-pop.
Never ones to shy away from candid, heart-on-sleeve lyricism, Waxflower’s new EP is what lead singer Tristan Higginson describes as “five anthems for the over-thinker,” and “the EP a brain writes at 2 AM when it can’t sleep – picking apart every awkward moment and wrong turn, all while wondering what could have been.”
Delivering five deliciously nostalgic emotive-rock anthems that ooze with buckets loads of guitar-infused grit and the perfect amount of pop-punk angst, ‘The Sound of What Went Wrong’ acts as an ode to the brain, as Higginson elaborates: “The last few years have given us more time in our heads than we may have liked. Self-doubt, self-hatred, missed connections, crutches, medication. All the fun stuff is here, wrapped up in songs that capture both the poppiest and heaviest sides of Waxflower to date. I hope people can find something to relate to throughout its runtime.”
Drummer Daniel Seymour explains the EP was recorded over two weeks in Sydney with producer and frequent collaborator Stevie Knight (Stand Atlantic / Yours Truly / Between You & Me). “Those two weeks were spent crafting and perfecting these songs – to become the most accurate representation of who we are as people, musicians, and what we hope Waxflower reflects. I feel this release is just the next step in our progression, a movement forward in the constant search to find “our sound” says Seymour.
