Following up on the successful release of their first two singles, which have netted the band well over 150,000 digital streams, several playlist placements, and garnered fans from Austin to Argentina, RIVAL WAVES is set to release their debut album, TRANSDUCER, on August 10th 2018. This guitar-fueled, fiercely earnest collection of songs merge the best of the rock anthems of Foo Fighters with the awareness and intellectual curiosity of Fugazi. The band’s desire to bridge the connection between art and audience, as well as their love for musical experimentation bleeds through on every track as they explore the ever-increasing politicization of our world and our desire to navigate our way through life. As Rival Waves singer/songwriter Joel De La Garza explains, “The music is loud and intense, but lyrically, and it’s all up to the listener’s interpretation, we’re just seeking to resolve issues–whether they be personal or how we see the world around us. We’re looking to show audiences how we feel about this life of constant conflict. That we’re all seeking some eventual order from this chaos.”
