On WasteSOFY MAJOR enlisted Unsane's Dave Curran to produce the album at Black Box Studio in France. The output was then mixed by Andrew Schneider at Translator Audio in Brooklyn (Unsane, Keelhaul, Cave In), and mastered by Carl Saff. With just under forty-two minutes of new material,Waste sees SOFY MAJOR charting new boundaries, and at a more relaxed pace. While not shying away from their rampant outbursts, the raging appears more subdued, with slightly more melodious sensibilities enveloping its delivery. Noisey tagged SOFY MAJOR's output as, "caustic noisecore that is somewhere between Coliseum and Harvey Milk," and No Clean Singing declared, "It rocks awfully damned hard, with big, fat, fuzz-bombed riffs, hard-punching drum beats, and a gravelly bass providing the force, and Mathieu Moulin's gritty, wailing voice providing the heat." Sterokiller's 4/5 review of the record included in part, "Waste is a well composed mixture of excitable, upbeat performances that can turn to miserable and downtrodden at the drop of a hat and never feel forced doing so... The inclusion of post-metal elements to the standard hardcore and sludge filled world is a match made in heaven as far as SOFY MAJOR's output goes. If you're a fan of the likes of Unsane, Hammerhead, or even Arabrot, Waste is something you're going to want to check out." And a review at the Outlaws Of The Sun blog included, "SOFY MAJOR are everything you want in a sludgy, noise rock outfit with the added bonus of some of the most anthemic riffs and melodies the genre could ever hope for. Their newest album, Waste is one of the catchiest records of the year."
