InFested: Photos of Microwave at The Wrecking Ball Festival, August 9, 2015

Atlanta, Georgia-based four piece recently signed to SideOneDummy Records and will be releasing new music in the coming months. Blending elements of post-hardcore, emo and Southern-tinged indie rock, Microwave balance frankness with a penchant for wit, allowing for seemingly standard personal confessions to make a significant and striking impact. While often tipping into the heavier side of resonant punk, the band shines brightest in soft reservation.
Their self-released debut album Stovall feels like a snapshot in time, bringing to mind that same unforgettable feeling that albums like Jimmy Eat World’s Bleed American, Manchester Orchestra’s I’m Like A Virgin Losing A Child and Taking Back Sunday’s Tell All Your Friends did years ago.
The band performed to a packed crowd on the Hell stage during Atlanta’s Wrecking Ball Festival in early August, dodging crowd surfers and stage divers, and enjoying the courtesy towels provided by the venue.
Ghettoblaster’s Tim Anderl and Kris Neises captured some of the action:
