Over the last few years the genre of rock has been pulled in so many different directions, leaving timeless vocal melodies and guitars to become far and few between. Wayland naturally possesses these qualities and more. Formed in 2010, The band was soon signed to Kiefer Sutherland’s Iron Works Records by hit singer/ song writer/ producer Jude Cole. Managed by Jesse James Dupree, Wayland released their first single “Welcome To My Head” which experienced high ranking on Mainstream and Active Rock charts. The follow up charting single “Reno” began to showcase Wayland’s diverse influences, from huge vocal harmony reminiscent of classic rock icons like Journey and Queen, and thick crunchy guitar riffs and pounding drums leaning on the hard rock side of the spectrum. With the release of 2014’s “Get A Little” the band’s music video for the song went viral online bringing in massive social media and YouTube numbers, causing the song to hit #6 on ITunes Rock charts. 2016 brought the Active Rock radio hit single “Bloody Sunrise” taking the band into almost 5 straight years of non-stop touring, boasting 250+ shows a year. There’s no signs of Wayland slowing down any time soon. Their new album “Rinse & Repeat” was released on Sep 22nd, 2017. Their current single, “Through The Fire” has reached #35 on Billboard Mainstream Rock Charts.
