Imagine spending your entire conscious existence as a citizen of a nation at war. A citizen of a nation whose ever lessening self respect sadly slips through the crooked fingers of the corrupt. Imagine building your expectations of a future life upon a foundation of deceit, uncertainty, violence, exploitation, failed families and economic shortcomings. These are the realities of the five Seattle kids determined to open the eyes of their drifting peers. Armed with a manifesto outlining their ambition to self actualize their adolescent counterparts, Man Without Wax create music that is a rallying battle cry for a disillusioned and yet to be named generation. “A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy;” advises the infamous British revolutionary Guy Fawkes, and so heed these young men of sin cera.

Anchor, the debut record from Man Without Wax, is the fervent heartbeat of the reborn Seattle music community. Immediate, deliberate and anything but forgiving. these ten songs compel listeners towards action with their vibrant mix of Muse and Alkaline Trio aesthetics and the more contemporary vocal deliveries of My Chemical Romance and Say Anything. As students in the grand tradition of over-the-top-rock, MWW teamed up with star producer, Casey Bates (Chiodos, Portugal The Man, Foxy Shazam, The Number Twelve Looks Like You) to produce this collection of dark but ultimately contagious rock songs.

Their first single “Kansas City Shuffle” is a shoe in for this years underdog anthem, dripping with the most memorable melody imaginable sauntering over reach-for-the-rafters guitar lines and pile-driving drum parts. Anchor’s first track, “You Pull Me Through Time” feels like a chamber choir on acid after having listened to Queen’s A Night At The Opera. Needless to say, this record is an eclectic one.

If you can’t imagine ever mustering the hope and constitution to even dream of toppling the status quo, don’t worry - Man Without Wax has it covered. And if it is true as their manifesto contends that “Ideals alone do not change a country,” than we take solace in knowing that at least someone has decided change is necessary. Anchor will be in US stores on September 9th.
