After building a strong teenage fanbase on Twitter and YouTube, Woke Up Waiting wasted no time jumping into the writing and recording recording of their new EP. “Better Off This Way,” out today, is their first EP offering as a trio. The 6-track collection is a fun set of youthful pop punk tracks, representing many different moods a teenager may experience through their navigation of adolescence. The combination of punky party anthems, guitar-driven ballads, and raw acoustic tracks successfully fuses together to create an adhesive, catchy EP. About the EP, the band states,
“This EP will make you want to party, cry, fall in love, get out of love and anything and everything inbetween. It’s a true look at all three of us as individuals and the things we’ve experienced over the last few years of our lives.”
Woke Up Waiting came together as a result of multiple bands disbanding, and after realizing the trio had similar musical aspirations, they decided to dive right into recording a new EP. In an effort to gain traction, the band initially started posting YouTube covers of popular songs, including tracks by pop punk veterans All Time Low and 5 Seconds of Summer. The lead single off of the EP, “Best of Me,” follows a similar pattern, introducing the band as the newest faces of pop punk. “Better Off This Way” is available NOW.
