Waco: The World

Hot off their UK tour, WACO are one of the best wacky and fun bands coming out of the UK at the moment. With an upcoming album announcement due to come in the new year, these four lads are one to watch out for.

In a style that is rarely seen these days, all four members of the band are vocalists as well as instrumentalists. The band is led by charismatic frontman and self declared ‘high priest’ Jak who puts crowds at ease with his charm and infectious energy. Bassist James is a fairly new addition to the band; he joined in 2020 for the release of their last album Hope Rituals. Each member brings something special to the group; their distinctive personalities gel really well onstage and this is something that is reflected in their unique sound. When watching and listening to them, their friendship and connection is palpable and the audience is brought in as one of the gang.

Ahead of their new album which is set to come out in Spring 2022, WACO dropped the video for their powerhouse single ‘The World’. The track is very much a continuation from their past work and is a call to all fans past and future to get excited about projects to come. After several months of not being able to perform live, the band’s energy oozes throughout the video. As is their style, the video is full of references to spirituality, resistance and connecting with the natural world. Unique doesn’t even begin to convey the feel of these guys-they very much are in a league of their own.

WACO pride themselves on doing things their way, no matter how eccentric or ambitious. Their weird yet wonderful creative flair understandably turns a lot of heads; there is something almost anarchic about these guys and with everything they do they seek to push the boundaries and restrictions of the rock and scenes. It is no wonder they have done well in the past; they’ve been featured in everything from Kerrang to Radio 1 and with past albums have supported the likes of Juliette and the Licks in European tours. While third time may be the charm, there is no doubting their upcoming album is set to be a hit.
