Five Questions With Wasting Time

Toronto, ON-based pop-punk quartet, Wasting Time has unveiled their sophomore album, Once More Without Feeling.

The offering features 10 songs that will take the listener on a magic carpet ride of uptempo romps, melodic choruses, heartfelt lyrics, and a few slower excursions.

The songs were produced and mixed by Steve Rizun at Drive Studios throughout 2020 and 2021.

Tonight (March 25, 2022), the band will play an album release show with their friends, The Anti-Queens and K-Man & The 45s at The Hard Luck Bar in Toronto, and they will have limited CD copies at the show.

Check out the album below, and find out more about Wasting Time via our Five Questions With segment.

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

We are four pop-punkers from the presently chilly streets of Toronto, Ontario. The band now consists of Vlad on lead vocals and guitar, Mike on bass, Mark on guitar and our newest member, Nick on drums.

Tell us a bit about your most recent release.

Our latest single is “Certain Days” from our upcoming sophomore album, “Once More Without Feeling”, which will be released on March 25th. “Certain Days” is our first acoustic-based song that we’ve released and we’re excited to unleash a new and different dimension of our sound. It was recorded by Steve Rizun at Drive Studios back in 2020 during the pandemic along with the rest of the album.

When it comes to the global pandemic, how are you keeping yourself out in the public eye while not being able to perform?

We tried to keep ourselves as active as possible since the pandemic started. We managed to record our album and started releasing the previous singles from it as often as we could. A couple of live performance videos were made during this time too, which can all be seen on our social media accounts.

Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so if you were able to work with ONE fellow Canadian artist, alive or dead, who would you choose?
