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.
Since their inception, the band has opened for artists such as Oh, Weatherly (Hopeless Records) and Centerfolds (CI Records), been featured on the Undiscovered Sound, and featured in many press articles and Spotify playlists. 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 music video for the song premiered on New Noise Magazine and quickly garnered over 2K views.
The band will release their debut 6-song EP "Armory" on August 17th and tour the northeast in support of it.
