Biography

Atlanta, Georgia Punk Rock Band, Wavepool, has been playing since 1995. Originally a 3 Piece band, Wavepool became a 4 Piece in Late 1995 when Ramiro joined the band on Lead Guitar. By 1996, Ramiro had moved out of the Country, so Wavepool recorded their first Demo Tape as a 3 Piece, with Ryan on Guitar and Vocals, Big Al on Drums and Vocals, and Brett on Bass and Vocals. That Demo floated around for awhile and then later on in 1996 Wavepool added Marc on Lead Guitar.
Around this time, Wavepool reached it's highest point yet. The shows were becoming more packed and packed, and the songs just kept on flowing. They were averaging about 2 shows a week at that time. Wavepool hit the Studio in December 1996 for the first time since Marc joined the band. They recorded 6 or 7 songs that time, and 6 or 7 more songs in March of 1997. Both of these Sessions were done at Ledbelly Sound Studio in Canton, GA. After that Session, Wavepool released their 2nd Demo Tape, with 10 songs on it. It was known as "The Blue Tape". Once again, another DIY production. At this same time, Wavepool appeared on Several different Comp CDs, on Labels such as 206 Records, Bad Stain Records, Class Action Records,Chicken Katsu Records, and several others.
In the Summer of 1997, Wavepool hit the road for the first time, on a short East Coast Run which included Starkville and Oxford, MS; Memphis, TN; Columbia, SC; Virginia Beach, VA; New Jersey; Westchester and Philadelphia, PA; and NYC and Buffalo/Niagra, NY.
From 1998-2001, the band didn’t play as frequently, as most of the Band Members were off at College. In 2001, Wavepool was already back at it, this time with Price on the Drums. This is the Current Lineup that continues today, Price on Drums and Vocals, Ryan and Marc on Guitars, and Brett on the Bass.
Wavepool’s First Full Length CD is due out March 16, 2010. They are actively playing shows in and around the Southeast, and are currently already in the process of writing their Second Record.
