After months of build up and excitement, Manchester's fastest rising alt-rock outfit Crushed By Waves have their debut album More To Life available for the world to enjoy! Following the release of five very successful singles (Won't Get Out Alive, Nothing Left, Too Much To AskYou Know and most recently More To Life's title track), Arran, Andy, Dan and Tom are delighted for fans across the UK and beyond to have access to their full creation.

Crushed By Waves are now building up to the next step of their 2024 musical journey - taking their new album More To Life on the road next month for their first very UK headline tour! The tour will take in seven shows across England and Wales across two weekends, kicking off in London on the 9th of May before heading to Nottingham, Manchester, Exeter, Reading and Southampton, finishing in Newport on the 18th. 

Tour support comes from South Wales metalcore troop When We Were Wolves, who have recently announced their comeback after a 5 year hiatus. Alongside them will be Brighton’s metalcore/post-hardcore outfit Glass Grave, who will be opening the first three shows, and Essex based teenage metal sensations Within Reach, opening the last four dates.

The track More To Life carries an important message, as Crushed By Waves frontman

Arran Prime explains:

"More to Life is about finally snapping out of our daily routine, and making the decision to change our lives before it’s too late. When you wake up and release you only have one life, how will you choose to spend it?"

More To Life is available to stream along with the rest of the album on your streaming platform of choice on this link

Crushed By Waves debut album More To Life features ten tracks of anthemic, varied, modern rock, serving as a perfect way for the band to take themselves to the next level in 2024. To learn more about More To Life, here's Crushed By Waves frontman Arran Prime:

"Our debut album 'More To Life' is a reflection of where we are at as a band. At the time of writing and producing this album we were experiencing so many things for the first time together. Our first time touring, our first manager, our first time playing major festival shows, and our first national radio play for our songs. ‘More To Life’ is the concept of rebirth. Have you ever felt destined to fail? Felt trapped in a day-to-day routine wishing for a better life? Well this was about taking control of our fate and breaking free of the limitations we put on ourselves. Now we are starting to learn what we are capable of, we will never settle for less or compromise again.

Despite all of our own self-doubts, we have achieved more than we ever thought possible. We are finding our place within this scene, and growing a loyal fanbase who seem to love what we are doing and supporting us on our path. We once had a mindset of thinking, ‘Who the fuck are Crushed By Waves?’. We had total imposter syndrome all the time. However, after the year we just had, we know exactly who the fuck Crushed By Waves are, and if you don’t, then you are missing out. This album is just the start for us boys - we hope you enjoy what we created.

Big love, Arran, Tom, Andy, Dan"
