Wave Break, a metaphorical term meaning to overcome adversity, is an apt name for the newly-formed Boston-based band. Founded in April 2017 by lead singer/rhythm guitarist Kelly Barber, their lyrics centralize on the theme of standing up to societal or social barriers. The band blends elements of post-hardcore, pop punk and emo rock for a sound that's all their own.

Their debut single "Deadlock" was released in October 2017, followed by a feature on The Undiscovered Sound on idobi Radio and a show slot opening for Oh, Weatherly (Hopeless Records) and Centerfolds (CI Records). Their second single "Plaster City," an anthem about standing up for yourself against those who try to tear you down, released on February 16th and was immediately added to regular rotation on idobi Radio. The band will release their debut 6-song EP in August and tour the northeast in support of it.
