About

Waxhead are a band of mates born and raised by the Byron Bay beachside. Formed early 2013, the four piece soon found themselves playing to crowds speaking foreign tongues in strange far off lands from the The island of gods, Indonesia, The land of the rising sun, Japan, and the strangely scented bohemian streets of Europe.

2014 saw the boys releasing their first few singles, touring the East Coast numerous times, tours over in Indonesia & Japan and festival appearances at Byron Bay Blues Festival, Falls Festival and Byron Bay Surf. 2015 topped it for the Waxys, releasing their debut EP 'Home' which took them on a wild ride and crazy tour schedule playing all sorts of tours & venues with festival appearances all over the world including; Surfana Festival (Holland), MadNes Festival (Holland), Surf Film Festibal (Basque Country, Spain), Fete de la Musique Festival (France), Windblown Festival (Japan) and Sunset Festival (Japan). Waxhead even managed to record their second EP, 'Cruise Control', in the few weeks off between their European and Japanese tours. Spending a weekend retreat in the hills at the iconic 'Music Farm Studios' with the groove lords Elliot Hammond and Alex Markwell from The Delta Riggs. The boys are ramping up for an even bigger/funner yr in 2016 with the release of Cruise Control, more studio time and an extensive and ambitious touring schedule which will take them across Australia, Europe, Japan, Indonesia & China. With guitars tightly snug between surfboards they deliver salty surf grooves and quirky quips from the beach front.
'Brussels' was released on 23 October.

 

70年代ヒッピーカルチャーの聖地、オーストラリア "バイロンベイ" にてサーフ&オーシャンカルチャーのもと生まれ育った Finny (Guitar), Beggson (Drums), Moffo (Bass), Froggy (Guitar & Vocal) の4人により2013年に結成されたグランジサーフロックバンド。

 

60年代から70年代初期のビンテージロック、70年代後半から80年代前半のポストパンクニューウェーブ、ブラックミュージック等に影響を受けた彼らのサウンドは、“ ‘NIRVANA’ や ‘The Beatles’ のフレーバーに、オーストラリア80’sロックシーンのアイコンである ‘The Church’ ‘ACDC’ ‘GOD’等のサウンドをミックスさせたような楽曲” とオーストラリアのミュージック誌 “Unearthed”でも評される。

 

バイロンベイを代表するフェスティバルである FALLS FESTIVAL や BYRON BAY BLUES FESTIVAL、BYRON BAY SURF FESTIVAL等さまざまなナショナルフェスティバルに出演する他、2014年にはオーストラリア、日本、インドネシアの3カ国でツアーを敢行。

 

2015年 デビューEPである ‘HOME’ をリリースし初となるヨーロッパツアーにて、SURFANA FESTIVAL (オランダ) 、MADNES FESTIVAL (オランダ)、SURF FILM FESTIBUL (バスク、スペイン)、FETE DE LA MUSIQUE FESTIVAL (フランス)等のフェスティバルを含む15のギグを行い、また日本でも SUNSET FESTIVAL、WINDBLOW等のフェスに出演している。

"Raucous revelry with a healthy helping of musicality makes for a fine slice of rockin goodness!"
Rob Gove FM

"They seem like they are unapologetically all about having fun, an unpretentious party band who make music to lose your shit to." Dan Harr, Music News Nashville

 

"Waxhead are quickly becoming renown for their raw, high energy live shows and euphoric psychedelic blues mind bending tunes." Across The Ocean
