Wait of the World

Wait Of The World is a highly contagious mix of catchy indie pop, outrageous alternative rock and a drop of electronics.
As early as 2013 the band, from Munich, Germany, was founded by the primary school mates Mike Sigl (guitar, keys and second vocals), Marco Eckl (guitar) and Tom Patchett (bass). Today the band is completed by drummer Elias "Push" Bohatsch and frontman Ben Hutchison-Bird, born in the British festival stronghold Reading.
Inspired by bands like Thrice, Nothing But Thieves or Bring Me The Horizon, Wait Of The World combines catchy pop appeal with a stadium rock attitude, subtle electronic parts and Ben's distinctive vocals into a self-contained unity. A modern sound, with which Wait Of The World inspired the crowd during more than sixty concerts all over Germany aswell as a celebrated opener at the renowned Taubertal Festival and Rock im Park. Last year the band attracted a lot of attention with their appearance on the german edition of the popular TV format "X Factor" in which they were voted 2nd place in the final by an audience of thousands. Their single "Glacier", which was subsequently released, is still one of WOTW's biggest live anthems today. It climbed to number 75 in the iTunes charts in 2018, while their single "Rebirth" hit number 3 in the Alternative iTunes charts.
Their unusual blend of sound gets right to the bone. The band observes the world around them with a keen eye and that shows itself in their lyrics.
