Liverpool, UK pop punk outfit WSTR have announced their signing to Hopeless Records and will release their new album, Identity Crisis, on August 31st. The band have shared the first single off the upcoming record with “Bad to the Bone”.
Speaking to the new record, Identity Crisis, vocalist Sammy Clifford expressed the band’s desire to push the band’s songwriting, take chances, and bring some swagger into the album.
“We’ve added all these different genres into our sound while keeping the WSTR roots. This record is about putting the simple things together well and trying to make them great.”
Working once again with long-time friend and producer, Seb Barlow (Neck Deep, As It Is), WSTR channeled the energy of the classics they grew up on and blasted forward with guitar solos, ad libs, and sing-a-long choruses that defiantly punches through the crowd. After extensive touring in the UK/Europe and Australia with bands like Neck Deep and Creeper, marquee festival runs on Slam Dunk Festival and Download Festival, and an upcoming North America tour, WSTR is geared up for the year ahead.
