Bio

Formed in 2010, Without Waves began writing music with an open ended approach to songwriting. “The music is about balance,” says Lead Singer/Guitarist Anthony Cwan. “We’ve made a concerted effort to allow more vulnerability in the songwriting process, more of a “bring anything to the table” approach.” That same attitude has helped the band create a wildly varied sound with a foundation in heavy metal. After six years, that credo rings true as the band prepares to release their first major label full length with Prosthetic Records. Self-produced at Bricktop Recording with Pete Grossman (Weekend Nachos, Immortal Bird) overseeing and mixed by Sanford Parker (Voivod, Eyehategod), Lunar will see an early 2017 release date. The album, as with their previous releases – 2011’s Scab Platter and 2014’s The Entheogen, is difficult to categorize. The music ranges from extreme metal to jazz fusion to atmospheric rock, showcasing blistering riffs and unorthodox time signatures paired alongside dreamy melodies and poetic chord structures. They don’t subscribe to any particular genre or sub-genre, and they like it that way. “We enjoy it when fans draw comparisons to bands they think we sound like,” says Cwan. “It gives us a different perspective as to how people perceive us. The more new comparisons and reactions we get, the more we know we are doing something right.”
Their diverse sound has given Without Waves a chance to share the stage with an equally diverse selection of bands: The Black Dahlia Murder, Scale the Summit, Anneke Van Giersbergen, Vattnet Viskar and Leprous just to name a few. Though a relatively new band, the members themselves had been playing together in one form or another for over a decade prior to Without Waves. Their unique bond contributes to the diversity of the songs and their performance. Their live show is energetic, tight and, at times, free flowing, which only comes when players are 100% confident and respectful of each other. “We’re not just band mates,” says Cwan, “we’re friends too and have been for more than half our lives at this point. And you can definitely hear it in the music.”
