Brisbane’s WAAX today announce they have just taken the next step in their career by inking a label deal in Australia and New Zealand with Dew Process / Universal Music Australia.

The band are on track to release their brand-new single titled ‘Labrador‘ next month, have also announced that they will be heading out across the country for a twelve show national headline tour this May / June after they dash along the East Coast supporting Biffy Clyro in late April.

The tour kicks off on the Gold Coast on May 11th, with special guests to be announced. Tickets are on sale now.

WAAX have amassed a fervent fan-base from around the globe in recent years, thanks to their killer, independently-released EP’s ‘Holy Sick‘ (2015) and ‘Wild & Weak‘ (2017), as well as a relentless touring schedule. The band is fresh from supporting Fall Out Boy on their recent Australian tour, which saw them playing to packed out audiences at some of the biggest venues of their career.

In the past 18 months, WAAX has played more than 60 shows including support slots with Aussie staples Violent Soho, Ecca Vandal, Emperors and Stonefield and internationals like Kim Gordon, Guitarwolf, UPSET and White Lung. They have also completed two sold-out Australian headline tours.

As a band practically built for the festival stage, they were enlisted for a stack of major festivals including Falls Festival, The Plot, Yours & Owls, Secret Garden as well as the recent Pool House Party.

Among all the action on the road, WAAX have managed to find a chance to record brand new material, which fans can expect to hear at these live shows when it is released in April.
