There are a seemingly infinite number of bands out there releasing new music, but there is only one Windwaker – who are now releasing the first taste of their new music. An all-out assault of a single entitled ‘New Infinite’ that is accompanied by a filmclip – and it’s live to stream and purchase now. They are also heading out on a string of headline shows throughout NSW in April that takes in Wagga Wagga, Albury, Sydney and Central Coast alongside Our Anchored Hearts and Rumours.
Windwaker are an Australian metalcore band from Melbourne, VIC. The act, consisting of vocalist Will King, guitarist Liam Guinane, guitarist Jesse Crofts, bassist Indey Salvestro and drummer Chris Lalic, formed in Wagga Wagga, NSW. With a mutual passion for music, the group packed bags and moved interstate in April 2015, later to drop their debut EP ‘Fade’ in May 2017.
In their 3 short years, Windwaker have managed to play alongside a unique range of artists – from progressive acts Haken (UK), The Algorithm (FRA) and Voyager (AUS), to post-hardcore acts Slaves (USA), Miss Fortune (USA) and In Hearts Wake (AUS).
Vocalist Will King says of the new track – “We remember that flow of creativity in the room during the recording of our debut EP ‘Fade’ with Sonny & Evan back in September 2016. It was as if this massive door had opened right up in front of us, bringing vibrant feelings and energy. The process felt surreal. Leaving the studio, we knew we wanted to achieve that independently.
The band took that flow of creativity and spun it into something that is uniquely and infinitely Windwaker.
“Having written 80% of ‘Fade’ before entering the studio, we felt we had the capacity to write our next release completely independently, but the big question between us all was whether we were able to tackle the technical aspects ourselves – the production, the engineering, mixing & mastering. For the past year and a half, we have all been working very hard to achieve that. Tracking ‘New Infinite’ in our band space, with the exception of recording drums with Declan White at his studio, this is a song that was written and produced by Windwaker, mixed and mastered by our drummer, Chris Lalic.“
The new single “New Infinite” is out now in Spotify, iTunes and triple j Unearthed and tickets/info for the New Infinite NSW tour dates are available now at bit.ly/windwakernsw.
