Bio

Waxhead are a unique surf/ psychedelic rock quartet who grew up surfing together in Byron Bay. The band consists of Finny on lead guitar, Shrecky on drums, AL Dogg on Bass and Froggy on Vocals and Guitar. In the beginning the outfit really honed in their live sound touring up and down the east coast of Australia where they garnered a live following with their dynamic and energetic performances sharing the stage with acts such as "Thee Oh Sees", "Skegss", "Gang of Youths", "Dune Rats", "Kingswood" and "The Delta Riggs" to name a few. This accumulated into a slurry of international tours and festivals in Japan, Indonesia and Europe.

Honing in on all their live experience, the band recorded their second EP "Cruise Control" live to tape at the iconic rocking horse studio with producers "Elliott Hammond and Alex Markwell from The Delta Riggs, they emerged from the Byron hinterland with something uniquely explosive. The lead single Brussels was featured on Vampire Diaries (season 7 episode 18) and their psychedelic odyssey Opinions was featured in Shameless season 7 episode 1

After taking time off to really perfect their songwriting and studio sound Waxhead have finally emerged from their long creative odyssey with an eloquently crafted diverse string of singles, I Feel Fine was featured in Legacies, Teen Mom OG and Shameless. City of Love was featured in the TV series In the dark and Disco Etiquette will be featured in the upcoming film Running with the Devil starring Nicholas Cage.

Their Latest single Alibi reflects on the nostalgia of the once quiet beach town which once represented a much rawer punk attitude to the gentrified playground for the millionaires it is today
