Microwave Detail Much Anticipated Fourth Album


On April 26th, Atlanta trio Microwave will release their long-awaited fourth album – ‘Let’s Start Degeneracy’. Set for release through Pure Noise Records, it promises to showcase the band in an expansive light, pulling in influences such as ambient pop and R&B to psychedelia. Oh and reggae rock group, Sublime.

Lyrically, ‘Let’s Start Degeneracy’ is loaded with revelations, some of which came to vocalist/guitarist Nathan Hardy after experiences with ayahuasca in Peru with drummer Timothy “Tito” Pittard. Nevertheless, along with bassist/vocalist Tyler Hill, the album sees Microwave‘s reinvigorated with an optimistic mindset. “It’s about letting go of attachments and behaviours that aren’t serving you and trying to shake off your programming and not be motivated by fear and guilt and shame,” says Hardy. “It’s about learning to be happy and take care of yourself.”

They’re also ‘Bored of Being Sad’

The announcement ‘Let’s Start Degeneracy’ has been accompanied by Microwave‘s new single. As its title suggests, ‘Bored of Being Sad’ sees the trio express their frustration with how the idea of ‘sadness’ has been romanticized, instead of being treated as something to resolve.

Musically, it captures Microwave at their most radiant with rich melodies mxied with swirling guitars
