This edition of “Weekendcore” is actually this weekend’s second, but that’s because we had the unexpected and tragic news of Chester Bennington’s suicide. This post is the one I had planned, and it’s the perfect way to end the feature.
“Weekendcore” on a Monday??? WTF??? Well, it’s the Victoria Day long weekend in Canada (where TPS is based, of course) so yeah! Let’s celebrate the unofficial start of summer with some appropriate tunage.
Wings and beer. Baseball and hot dogs. Loud music and driving. Pop-punk and Vancouver. All of these are great combinations, and Woke Up Waiting encapsulate the latter. The three-piece – Justin Mattock (vocals/guitar), Sean Thomas (vocals/guitar) and Lucas Bayley (bass/vocals) – put out debut single “Best of Me” in July, and will follow it up with EP Better Off This Way October 20th. When I first WOKE UP (woooo) this morning, there was no WAITING (okay sorry…ish) to post their chat with TPS!
