Made up by guitarists Danny Swift and Kieren Alder, singer Sammy Clifford, drummer Kieran McVeigh and bassist Alex Tobijanski, Waster grew up on the mainstream pop punk bands like Blink, New Found Glory and Sum 41. Those influences along with their own unique musical stylings have helped shape the quintet’s high-energy sound that they’re becoming known for throughout their hometown of Liverpool.
Waster’s debut EP, SKRWD, was produced and recorded by Seb Barlow at Celestial Recordings (Neck Deep, Homebound, ROAM), and is a full force introduction to the band’s keen ear for instantly familiar hooks and head bobbing grooves, showcasing more savvy and swagger than many bands with ten times their experience. And while their music might be serious, the members are far from, as their tongue-in-cheek music video for lead single “Graveyard Shift” might suggest.
“We wanted to show our personalities straight from the start and that we don't take ourselves too seriously,” says vocalist Sammy Clifford. “We took the classic phrase “working the graveyard shift” and put a dark/humorous twist on it. So we shot the video in an old graveyard in the woods, somewhere by my house, and have some fun with it. We put corpse paint on as we wanted to portray misfits of society, working and hating our everyday jobs.”
