We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Wasted Potential’s new album Living Up To The Name (listen below), which is scheduled to be officially released through Canada’s Get Party! Records on August 30th. You can pre-order the album here.
The band formed in 2012 and have put out a slew of 7 inches; now they finally stepped up to the plate and cranked out 9 hard-hitting tracks. Drawing influences from the likes of Turbonegro, Crusades, and OFF!, the band showcases the crossover punk / rock ‘n’ roll stylings.
Born in the backrooms of London, ON – littered with pizza boxes and beer cans, OSAP loans and amp tubes – is Wasted Potential. Made up of members from bands that no longer matter – but once held great promise the very make up of the bands past gives light to the name – a reality so many musicians face – to put everything in and getting nothing back. But that may have changed with this group of seasoned local heroes, going against the grain of their very own name – as a powerhouse mix of attitude, talent and a live show that envelopes the audience into the fold of the angst-y anxiety ridden world of front man Danny Kidd – usually wasted, these guys are doing anything but wasting their potential.
