Brisbane hardcores, Waiting Room, have been around for just over a year now and now with the release of their self titled up they have decided to upload the tracks for streaming.

For those of you who are new to the band, here’s a bit of a run down to get you up to speed:

‘Waiting Room came to be in mid 2010 from both experienced backgrounds and fresh beginnings, soon after devising their own slant on melodic hardcore punk. Off the back of a four-track demo the five-piece began gigging all over town, with a song soon after featured on the ‘This Is Brisbane’ compilation alongside many of the city’s finest up-and-coming hardcore groups. 

Their self-titled EP is seven tracks of truly passionate punk rock that shines above with bouncy riffs, metallic tinges, harrowing screams and even slightly progressive inclinations. Recorded on the Gold Coast by Sam Saljooghi (Ghost Town) and mixed/mastered in the U.S. by John Naclerio, who had previously worked with the likes of Shai Hulud, Polar Bear Club, Brand New and dozens more.

Tracks like ‘Hold Fast’ show the band’s catchier side, with Fires of Waco frontman Allan Reid lending his throat to the chorus, while ‘Celaphais’ sees them exploring heavier and darker sounds with some backing screams from Capeweather’s Connor Hallam. ‘
