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 their first four singles receiving radio support from Kerrang! Radio and Planet Rock, and subsequent singles being championed by Alyx Holcombe on her BBC Radio 1 Introducing Rock Show.

Several sold out headline hometown shows in Manchester, runs of UK shows with DFLM label mates Two Year Break including New Blood Tour, and appearances in 2023 at a number of festivals including Takedown, Hammerdown, Radar Festival and Download Festival after winning a coveted slot at the Boardie Takeover at the festival's 20th Edition from over 500 submissions, alongside brand new music released across the summer and amazing support from BBC Music Introducing, Crushed By Waves are hell bent on just getting their music into the faces of as many people as possible, grabbing the proverbial bull firmly by the metal horns and preparing for one hell of a ride.

“When we see our music can bring a room full of strangers together, the energy in that room is worth dying for, it actually gives us life.”

March 2024 saw the release of their debut album "More To Life", recorded with Oz Craggs at Hidden Track Studios, and in May their first headline UK tour dates.

Brace for impact, CBW are making waves. This is just the start of the band’s energised future.
