Groundwave - s/t, EP 2006
Groundwave - Mankind, LP 2008



Groundwave is a five piece band from Guelph, Ontario. Their musical background ranges from post-punk, metal, blues and classical, also artist and bands that influenced them include Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Tom Waits, Bauhaus, Dead Moon, The Deadly Snakes, Arcade Fire. The live shows they put on are dark, energetic and theatrical.

They are currently promoting the new full length studio album “Mankind” which is the follow up to their EP. The songs on the album are stories of love and sorrow with ever dark guitar riffs, shadowy yet haunting organ, gloomy grooves and strong deep vocals. The songs are tale-like and have a wide range of subjects, from an imaginary dirge through an apocalyptical love song (earth died screaming - a Tom Waits cover) to an early 20th century bigotry case as a murder ballad. The album was recorded and mixed by Steve Knox of The Kramdens and mastered by Ron Skinner (CBC radio).
