Microwave releases Much Love, tours

It may have only been two years since Atlanta’s Microwave released its debut record Stovall, but a lot has changed since then. While the exuberance and joy of Stovall dealt with vocalist/guitarist Nathan Hardy’s wide-eyed wonder at a world previously obscured by a strict religious upbringing, their new album Much Love details the aftermath once the excitement of experimentation is dampened by the harsh realities of life.
Recorded and mixed by Travis Hill, Much Love is a more abrasive, rawer set of songs than its predecessor, more The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me than Deja Entendu. Yes, Microwave is very much still recognizable as the same band, but at the same time, these songs are a conscious evolution of their sound.
Fresh off a blistering performance at Riot Fest earlier this month, Microwave will head back on the road this fall with All Get Out and Gates after debut performances at Riot Fest (Denver and Chicago) and The Fest in Gainesville, FL. They will also return for a second time to The Stuffing, Manchester Orchestra’s annual Thanksgiving festival in Atlanta, on November 23.
