"242 Main: South Burlington, VT"

"I crafted a clever little blurb about a “Canadian” ska band called The Waffle Stompers who were playing a show at 242 with local ska-punk outfit Husbands AKA who kick ass, by the way. It went a little something like this: Sunday, the basement bastion of bad-assery will be skankin’ like it’s 1997 with New Brunswick ska-punk ensemble The Waffle Stompers, who bear a striking resemblance to early Reel Big Fish, only, you know, Canadian. Comedic gold, right? (Ed. note: No.) Only one problem: The band ain’t Canadian. They’re from New Brunswick, New Jersey. This means, not only did I goof the biographical info, but I also missed a golden opportunity to rip on the Garden State. Curses! Still, I stand by my assertion that the dudes sound like a Canadian version of Reel Big Fish and that’s not a bad thing, really." - 7DVT

"Black on Black"

"Lets hear it once again for New Jersey. From the state that gives you Catch 22 and Streetlight Manifesto, may I present The Waffle Stompers. This seven piece outfit--straight outta New Brunswick--brings an infectious blend of ska and punk that makes me wax nostalgic for the 3rd wave. Sounding like a Thomas Kalnoky protoge with a mix of old LTJ, Black on Black is a fun, albeit short, walk through the ska punk park. This is the band's 3rd EP since 2005 and though I don't have any reference to the prior material, I really like what I'm hearing on the new release. On another continual note, bands that both rock and rock for fun and unity are all good in my book." --Jerry Actually, !upstarter - !upstarter

"Black on Black [2]"

"This 6-song EP is full of hard rock and heavy metal intertwined with a horn section, and packaged as "ska". If you shop at Hot Topic, you will probably think this band is the best thing since sliced bread."

Performance. Personality. Perseverance. Alliterated or otherwise, The Waffle Stompers are good. Since their formation in the spring of 2005, TWS has played over 100 shows all over the northeast and mid-Atlantic regions, wow-ing audiences and developing a dedicated following from Knoxville to Boston. The live show is characterized by three part harmonies, a lot of sweat, and dancing.

For a taste of their personality, watch the music video for "Serious," directed and produced by Marsh Chamberlain (Cinema/Photography, Ithaca College). Released in December 2007, Chamberlain and the band were honored as the winners of the Ithaca College Music Video Film Festival.

This June, 2008 they released their third EP, Black on Black. It was recorded at Soundmine Recording with Producers Dan Malsch and Jarred Cannon.

They will continue to tour throughout the spring and summer to promote their latest release, as well as spark excitement for an upcoming full length, currently planned to be self released.
