Hailing from Fairfax, Virginia, it’s kind of amazing to consider that THE WAYWARD collectively have but a mere six arms. Simply put, there’s a LOT going on with the band’s music. Slabs and slabs of riffs uncoil at a frenetic pace courtesy of Nicholas and Jesse Skrobisz, a hypnotic concoction brewed from years of tight brotherhood and shared experience. One-swinging-guy Nathaniel Simms powers his way through the hot choppery, finding rhythms eschewing both harmonious conviction and technicality.

Having looped the U.S. numerous times already, the band is relentless in their work ethic, sweating it out in clubs, show spaces, and basements with an unrivaled passion and conviction toward their craft. Overexposure, their second full length and Magic Bullet Records debut (with previous efforts having come out on Mike Hill’s Black Box Recordings), stands to put THE WAYWARD on the map for all progressive rock fans. Being released exclusively as a very special LP/CD combo at super sweet combined price, it features 10 songs capturing the pure essence of a band at their best.
