…this band is much more serious than their name might suggest.
Hailing from the country roads of West Virginia, the Morgantown-based five-piece Wait For It brings a highly introspective brand of pop-punk to the table with their debut album “Life in the Real World.” Don’t let their moniker, straight from the mouth of “How I Met Your Mother” frontman Barney Stinson fool you, this band is much more serious than their name might suggest.
Wait For It is led by the belted vocals of Adam Fox, who co-founded the band with guitarist Aaron Griffin in 2013. What started as a studio project in a treehouse soon transformed into a full lineup with the addition of Josh Martinez (guitar), Tad Statler (bass), and Daniel Morris (drums).
It’s hard to pigeon-hole Wait For It into one specific genre of music. There are obvious pop-punk influences illustrated by relentless angst and soaring choruses, but there are also instances of sentimentality both lyrically and sonically.
Wait For It is eager to expand their horizons past north-central West Virginia. Find their album Life in the Real World on iTunes, and follow them on Twitter @Wait4ItBand.
