Speaking about the new releases, the band’s Davide Cavaioli reveals: “‘Burning Season’ is our attempt to put the burning feeling of self-redemption into music, an opportunity to enlighten your path.”

Cavaioli continues: “This fire within us is nothing but our conscience, something that can be awakened by a simple conversation, phrase, or word that we, at times, can say to help others. We easily forget about this power, but remembering it can help us achieve our noblest goals.”


Having earned over 600K streams with their body of work so far, Waves in Autumn are far from a hidden gem. The band’s thunderous brand of modern heavy is parlayed with opulent instrument and a frank vocal delivery, making for a soundscape dripping with atmosphere and unerringly accessible.

New EP Burning Season tackles a range of issues from mental health to ambition, with Waves in Autumn’s overarching message one championing both nature and nurture. The band’s collaborative designs can be seen throughout the record, guest features from Ready, Set, Fall’s Christopher Volpi and Milan post-hardcore crew As Hikari bringing fellow members of the buoyant Italian heavy seen to the fore.

Mixed and mastered by Lance Prenc (Polaris, Alpha Wolf, Thornhill), Burning Season treads the line between metalcore and post-hardcore, with the band utilizing a dizzying amalgam of tenacious breakdowns, immersive melodies and potent riffs. Amidst the technical prowess, Waves in Autumn stand firm with their narrative, a troubling but hopeful outlook at our treatment of the environment and each other.
