Emerging from the fertile musical soil of Jackson, Mississippi and slaying stages since 2009, Waypoint has turned thousands of heads with what critics have described as a "unique and new experience in heavy, ambient post-rock." With roots in the hardcore scene and hearts in the indie world, Waypoint has successfully managed to bridge the gap between the two genres and developed an unrepeatable sound of their own.

Waypoint's debut release "Good and Well" arose from the embers of tragedy and followed the passing of the band's best friend and bass player Emezie Harrison. The LP sent the band in a much darker and emotive direction, and they began to venture into deeper musical waters, exploring the influential sounds of grunge and post-rock alongside their hardcore/emo roots. Waypoint returned to the studio in the summer of 2012 to record the EP "Hollow Ground" and followed the release with extensive touring, sharing the stage with the likes of As Cities Burn, Colour Revolt, Sainthood Reps, and The Weeks.

In 2013 Waypoint re-entered the studio (The Refinery in Nashville) and focused their effort on an individual hard-hitting single titled "Solus". "Solus" (latin for 'alone') marked the bands darkest and most mature material to date and caught the attention of several indie tastemakers, including Spartan Records. It did not take long for the label and band to enter into a musical love affair, and for Waypoint to find their true home with Spartan.

The band headed into the studio this summer to record their debut Spartan EP "Creature of Habit", which will be released on November 18th.

For fans of Thrice, Gates, Moving Mountains and Of Us Giants.

News: Owel - Help Us Record Our New Songs!



Hello everyone. This is Jay, Ryan, Seamus, Jane, and Pat and together we play in a band called OWEL.

It's been about 2 years since we started working together and since then, we've released a full length record which you can find on iTunes and Spotify,


We've had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists like Minus the Bear, Casey Crescenzo from The Dear Hunter, EMA, Foxing, Penfold, and American Authors.
We've also gotten amazing reviews and write-ups from blogs like Pitchfork, Stereogum, Grantland, Absolute Punk, and NPR.


Needless to say, so far we've been pretty lucky. But still, there's so much more music that we'd like for you to hear. Since the release of our full length record, we have been writing new songs that we are super proud of and are eager to release.


This is where you come in.

With your help, we could have the funding to get into the studio and record these songs. If all goes well, we will be working with the one and only Mike Watts who's produced bands like As Tall As Lions and The Dear Hunter. Not only that, but we will be releasing a kick ass music video for one of these songs.


Record labels can be great and do a lot for bands (like lets say…. fund a record), but the wrong label can ruin one. Now if you've been in bands or you've been in the music industry, we're sure most of you can think of someone who's had their record shelved by some major label. These artists pour their hearts into their songs only to find out that in the end, the label didn't see them as being marketable or relevant.  As a result, a lot of these songs go unreleased and unheard. That kind of sucks.

But that's the beauty of a campaign like this one. You as the listener can choose to believe in the artist and be an essential part of their success. After all, It's you who we want to share our music with. It's you who we want to move, and it's you who has helped us come this far.

If you check out our perks and Indie Gogo exclusives, you can see we've got some pretty cool prizes depending on how much you decide to contribute. Any help you can extend will be accepted with huge gratitude and will go a long way.

We've been lucky to have such amazing fans and friends, but we'd like for you to be a part of this band in a whole new way.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Understandably, we know not everyone has money to contribute, but this doesn't mean you can't help! Here are some ways you can still show your support:

Please help get the word out to your friends. Sharing is caring. Facebook, Twitter, E-mail, telegrams via ravens, etc.
Come to our shows, give us hugs, cheer us on. It keeps us going!
As always, thank you for your support and for listening.

Goodbye, Titan wrote a soundtrack for a short film movie of an adopted ten year old, who climbs to the top of an oak tree in hope of catching his unborn baby brother falling from space, called Hardbinger. It's everything you would ask from a post-rock album in approximately 15 minutes, which definitely makes you wanna see the film.. We only wish it could last longer...

The Inquisition: 020.Musth


1. How did you came up with the name of the band? 

Well, Simon, first bass player/singer of the band, was watching a show on National Geographic about elephants… He kinda was in the zone if you know what I mean, and they were talking about horny adolescent elephants… Seems this phase in their life is called „musth”… et voila, we had a band name.

2. Do you have a standard procedure of creating a song? Do you just jam around or is there a main riff and the track is build up on it? 

Most of the „magic” happens in our rehearsal room, when Ben and Jens (our guitar heroes) start jamming. Most of the time one of them has a good idea of a riff, and then they start jamming around it.

3. What are your influences and what kind of music do you hear when you are at home? 

The main influences of Musth are bands like Cult Of Luna, Isis, Neurosis, The Ocean etc… At home I (Tim) listen to a lot of stuff: my favourite band is Nirvana (I was born in 1978 ;)), and I also adore Amenra, Wolves In The Throne Room, Celeste, Colaris, …

4.Which is the one album you can’t live without? 

Nirvana - Nevermind

5. What's the first record you've ever bought? 

Guns N’ Roses - Appetite For Destruction

6. Name a band that you would like to share the stage or tour with ? 

Amenra… We already shared the stage with them, and they are an amazing live band and nice guys!!!

7. Did the internet and specially the blogs helped to spread your music around the world? Name a place (country) that you were suprised to know your music has reached to? 

Off course it helped!!!! I was surprised that we sold our vinyl to a guy in Greece (I think you know who ), we also shipped to Canada already. All thanks to the internet!!!

8. Do you support the idea of bandcamp where fans can decide the price or services like spotify? 

You can’t get around the internet anymore. Our previous album was on a Russian blogspot the day after we released it… So if our fans want to give something for the blood, sweat and tears we put into making our album, we are extremely happy with it!! And we have loyal fans, who still buy our vinyl and CD’s, or pay for the download via bandcamp. Thank you very much for that!!!

9. Where do you see yourselves in 5 years? 

That’s a difficult question: we are writing our new album now (the followup of „Ebb & Flow”), and it is going to be different. The idea is to get a much darker vibe in it, compared to Ebb & Flow. If that works out, we hope to tour around Europe, play some awesome gigs in a lot of different countries, … World domination comes to mind.

10. Is the artwork of an album important nowadays in the digital era? 

For us it still is! Nothing beats the feeling of looking at the awesome artwork of an album, while that album is playing. The smell, the feel, the whole concept just makes sense!!

11.What is you favorite album cover?

Baroness - Blue Record

12. It seems that a lot of people are turning on vinyl again. Why do you think that is and which is your preferable media format? 

Vinyl is by far the best format for heavy music!!!!! The charm of putting the vinyl on the player, and putting the needle on there… Also the sound of vinyl is so much better!!!!

13. What's the funniest story or moment as a band? 

Well, that Musth have been Koelbox Open Air… It’s a „private” festival in Belgium, where the organisers arrange an awesome lineup and a cool location, and the audience needs to bring their own coolbox and their own booze and food. We were headlining this festival, and I arrived early, so I could watch the first band. No need to say that by the time we had to go onstage, I was so wasted that I could barely stand on my feet. The only advantage I had, was that the audience was in the same state! Afterwards, I heard that one of the guys who visited the festival and fell over every time you saw him, had a broken leg apparently… They found that out the day after… Just so you know what kind of festival it is.

Musth is a post-metal band from Belgium, with a demo, 2 albums and a split release in the past few years.If you're not familiar with the band, check them out!
