WSTR - a must-see for all pop punk fans
WSTR burst on to the British music scene in 2015, signing a record deal before they had even officially played a show. The four-piece pop-punk band treads a fine line between the positive and the negative, playing songs that may deal with dark themes in an upbeat way. An energetic force on stage, WSTR tickets are available now to buy or sell on StubHub.
WSTR has finally found its identity
British band WSTR was formed in Liverpool in 2015 by four friends - founding lead singer Sammy Clifford had previously and unsuccessfully tried to form a different band, but fate wanted it otherwise. The band was signed immediately by American label No Sleep Records and released their debut EP in 2015, followed by a studio album in 2017. A much-anticipated new album from WSTR followed in summer 2018, titled 'Identity Crisis'. A suitable name, given the band's tendency to swing between upbeat and dark songs - versatile with their lyrics and the themes that they deal with, the band members tackle the whole range of human emotions with their music. It could also be seen as referring to the identity crisis WSTR experienced in their formative months. They originally called themselves 'Waster', a name shared by a Canadian band, and were forced to adopt a new identity - which they did by simply removing the vowels from their name. There's certainly no lack of creativity here!
Experience all the emotion with WSTR in concert
WSTR tickets are available for a wide variety of events - as well as playing their own gigs, the band has performed at various festivals, including Download Festival. Citing bands like Blink-182 and New Found Glory as their inspiration, the Liverpool-based group is heavily influenced by American pop punk but still has a distinctly British sound to it. They are part of the new wave of British pop-punk that is helping to produce a unique and creative take on this musical genre - and although they might be a little younger than bands such as Neck Deep or Boston Manor, that doesn't mean that they're lacking in ideas or talent. As a relatively new and defiantly individual band, WSTR has plenty of potential and scope for diversifying and taking pop punk in numerous directions, supported by an international fan base that just keeps on growing. A must-see for all fans of pop punk or new music, you can catch these boys' thoughtful take on the world with WSTR tickets, available now to buy or sell on StubHub.
