New year! New releases! 2018 started with a bang after Noiseware dropped a new music video for their song ‘Iridescent’. This comes 5 years after their last EP release ‘Wake up and Soar’ (WHICH I LOOVE)

The new music video is straight outta their second release called –Clouds at Last– which released on 18.1.18. With this massive album release, we better stay tuned for tour details!

In the mean while, they have dropped some sick new merch that you can get your hands on to support the band! The album is available on their site for a ‘ pay what you want’ fee. GO ON, DO IT!
