Crushed By Waves Announce First UK Headline Tour.

Crushed By Waves band

Hot on the heels of a very successful run of shows with Cabin Boy Jumped Ship and October Ends, Manchester’s rapidly rising rock four piece Crushed By Waves have announced their first full UK headline tour for May 2024. 

Arran, Tom, Dan and Andy will be taking their dynamic live show back out on the road in support of their upcoming debut album, More To Life, releasing on March 22nd. The tour will take in seven shows across England and Wales across two weekends, kicking off in London on the 9th of May before heading to Nottingham, Manchester, Exeter, Reading and Southampton, finishing in Newport on the 18th. 

Tour support comes from South Wales metalcore troop When We Were Wolves, who have recently announced their comeback after a 5 year hiatus. Alongside them will be Brighton’s metalcore/post-hardcore outfit Glass Grave, who will be opening in London, Nottingham and Manchester, and Essex based teenage metal sensations Within Reach, opening the last four dates.

Crushed By Waves debut album More To Life features ten tracks of anthemic, varied, modern rock, serving as a perfect way for the band to take themselves to the next level in 2024. The album’s hugely popular singles released so far (Won’t Get Out Alive, Nothing Left, Too Much To Ask) have taken Crushed By Waves to many heights over the last twelve months, including appearances at huge festivals such as Download, Radar and Takedown.

More recently their new single You Know has brought the band to an even wider audience. Away from the already released tracks, More To Life is an album where almost every song could be a single in its own right.

From Dangerous’ soaring chorus and huge breakdown to the arena worthy synth rock of the album’s title track, More To Life offers excellent variety but with a consistent sound across the album. To learn more about More To Life, here’s Crushed By Waves frontman Arran Prime:

“Our debut album ‘More To Life’ is a reflection of where we are at as a band. At the time of writing and producing this album we were experiencing so many things for the first time together. Our first time touring, our first manager, our first time playing major festival shows, and our first national radio play for our songs. ‘More To Life’ is the concept of rebirth. Have you ever felt destined to fail? Felt trapped in a day-to-day routine wishing for a better life? Well this was about taking control of our fate and breaking free of the limitations we put on ourselves. Now we are starting to learn what we are capable of, we will never settle for less or compromise again.

Despite all of our own self-doubts, we have achieved more than we ever thought possible. We are finding our place within this scene, and growing a loyal fanbase who seem to love what we are doing and supporting us on our path. We once had a mindset of thinking, ‘Who the fuck are Crushed By Waves?’. We had total imposter syndrome all the time. However, after the year we just had, we know exactly who the fuck Crushed By Waves are, and if you don’t, then you are missing out. This album is just the start for us boys – we hope you enjoy what we created.

Big love, Arran, Tom, Andy, Dan”

About Crushed By Waves

Hailing from North West UK, Crushed By Waves deliver their own brand of hard-hitting, no apologies, gritty alternative rock.

Since releasing their debut single ‘Ceiling’ in late 2020, Crushed By Waves have been showcasing their sound on the UK alternative rock scene – a cathartic blend of melodic verses, power-house breakdowns and anthemic choruses, which has seen the band steadily gain a growing fanbase and the attention of industry, with radio support from Kerrang Magazine, BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Kerrang! Radio and Planet Rock to name just a few.
