When nu-metal burst back onto the scene in late 2016, heads were turned and questions were raised – one of the most conversation starting genres of the late 90s seemed to be offending parents and pissing off “true” metalheads yet again. Bands like Ocean Grove, Cane Hill and DREGG were painting their faces and getting dissonant – and it’s worked.

Halfwait are taking on the massive choruses, soaring riffs, and grimier under-tones of the 90s and early 00s post-grunge superstars – think anything in the vein of Bush, Fuel and even Silverchair.

The Sydney-siders who’ve cut their teeth around the country’s most beloved bars and clubs have just dropped a huge new single called ‘Stand Alone’ with an accompanying video.

The track will feature on the band’s highly anticipated upcoming release ‘The Official’ that’ll showcase the growth and musical-know how developed from years of touring with their heroes and mastering their craft.
