We’re bringing Waterweed – Diffuse to vinyl!

There may not be an MPF in 2021, but we can’t deny the incredible memories we have from previous years and the excitement for the return as we all recharge for the next round.

Flashback to April 2018, when waterweed were invited over from Japan for a their first European tour. In some instances, this feels like a lifetime ago but sometimes it seems only yesterday. A lot has changed since then, but what definitely hasn’t changed is the total awesomeness of waterweed. Following up Brightest with another excellent full length Diffuse. We are super pleased to announce we will be pressing, not only Diffuse but waterweed to vinyl for the first time.

You can still support the festival by buying some of the remaining 2020 merch.

Formed in Osaka 2003, Waterweed have been at the forefront of the Japanese post-hardcore and screamo movement since the beginning of the scene and have toured all over Japan and the far east. In 2018, Waterweed toured the UK and Europe for the first time, after re-releasing Brightest to a new European fanbase

The bands third full length album “Diffuse” was released in Japan April 2019 in Japan by Maximum10 on CD format and on the 4th December 2020 Lockjaw records will release Diffuse on vinyl for the first time.

The vinyl is coming on Galaxy effect, transparent Reverent Black Grape with a smokey swirl of opaque pale green stars.* We have bundled the vinyl up with an exclusive shirt design featuring photography from Cold Front Photography snapped at the bands incredible performance in Rebellion at Manchester Punk Festival 2018.

* Please note: this is only a mock-up of the colour-way. We shall post the actual effect as soon as they arrive.
