Bio

Waxhead are a band of mates born and bred in Byron Bay, the land of surf culture. Drawing from their life in the waves and on the margins of mainstream, Waxhead is all about positive vibes, a bit of modern attitude and grime to easy -going surf culture.
In a short time their unique sound has built a buzz to crowds not only in the Land of Oz but far off lands, from the islands of the gods, Indonesia, the land of the rising sun, Japan and strangely scented bohemian streets of Europe.
2014 saw the boys releasing their first singles and touring up and down the east coast numerous times as well as Australian festival appearances at Byron Bay Blues Fest, Falls Festival, and Byron Bay Surf Festival. Off the back of these singles also saw the boys begin their overseas missions with tours through Indonesia and Japan
2015 Waxy’s released their debut E.P ‘Home’ which took them on a crazy tour schedule over into some new territories appearing at Surfana Festival (Holland), MadNes Festival (Holland), Surf Film Festibul (Basque Country Spain), Fete de la Musique Festival (France) Windblown Fest (Japan) and Sunset Festival (Japan).
In the few weeks between tours of Europe and Japan the fellas managed to record a new EP, spending weekend retreats in the hills of the iconic Music Farm Studios. Produced by groove lords Elliot Hammond and Alex Markwell, from The Delta Riggs, the new EP, Cruise Control’ set for release early 2016 and a new single ‘Brussels’ released on 23 Oct.
2016 leaves the boys ramping up for an even bigger year with more studio time and an extensive touring schedule taking them across Oz, as well as Europe, Japan, Indo and China.
With guitars tightly snug between surfboards Waxhead deliver salty surf grooves and quirky quips from the beach front. The plan is simple, have so much fun it becomes contagious.

A roaring stoner rock tune in the vein of Kyuss with a tinge of Alice In Chains. The band puts out some great atmosphere that brings out a hot summer surfy vibe. On top of this the band rock out with great speed and precision to produce a massive ball of energy!
