"TEARWAVE is a slow drift into a lazy hinterland populated with broken statues, desolate forests and shimmering spirits. A luminous dreamscape brilliantly outlined with mourning guitars and reverberation. Crystalline voices filter through the miasma and resonate the soul. Each song a guided journey of human emotion and raw power." - Somnium7, a TEARWAVE fan.


Projekt is proud to announce their latest signing: TEARWAVE, a gorgeous Shoegazer / Dream-Pop quartet from one of the snowiest and most depressed cities in America: Buffalo, NY.

TEARWAVE integrates sounds echoed from the spectrum of Shoegaze music, yet rarely mimics their influences; TEARWAVE takes their cues then creates a whole new supernova of sound for a current generation of indie-rock listeners. Drawing on the past but moving towards the future, their 10 song self-titled debut is the soundtrack of dreams, equally perfect for days of internal reflection, overcast Sundays in bed or moonlit graveyard walks.

Jenn Manganiello's luscious vocals dig deep into the listener's subconscious soul with her red-wine melodies and the distant warmth of her lyrics.

Doug Whites guitars and keyboards soothe and drive with melodic darkness.

John Stephanski's arsenal of rare vintage Ludwig drums and percussive instruments lay a pounding foundation,
while Joe Villella's solid bass patterns batten down the hatches to round out Tearwave's monumental sound.

TEARWAVE'S compact, tight and driving songs are infused with an uneasy haunting aura; their music is dark and moody with an edge of troubling inspiration. This spellbinding sound has the genre's enthusiasts spreading a frenzied buzz about TEARWAVE. U.S. and Europe Shoegaze and Darkwave message boards and blogs have been full of TEARWAVE references since the band's appearance on MySpace just a few months ago.

"Swirling walls of intricately layered sounds; an echo chamber for the heart; dense soundscapes bearing the full range of the emotional world, and simply dark and lush like a Victorian opium den. Music that really touches the soul, Jenn's voice is like an angel. For people who love Shoegaze, we've been waiting for this ever since Lush broke up." - librarian, a TEARWAVE fan.

Their MySpace hit Lotus Flower cements TEARWAVE as a Projekt-peer of Autumn's Grey Solace, Lycia and Love Spirals Downwards.

    I truly respect the sound of this music. It\'s awesome to find a band who can push the limits of a genre. There is so much drive and purpose behind each of these songs. One of my personal favorites is Trial By Fire. Apr 26
