Five Minutes With: Montreal Punk Trio NO WAVES

NO WAVES is a young three-piece band from Montreal formed in 2017 (when they were in their early teens). The band is made up of longtime friends Sam Sussman (drums/vox), Angel Parra Vela (guitar/vox) and Cyril Harvin Musgni (bass). Together they create a massively energetic, raw and authentic sound that is all their own. This weirdo punk trio has become known for their all-ages events and underground guerrilla shows across the city. Described as “Nu-Punk” they draw from a wide variety of influences and explore all types of genres and sounds ranging from hardcore to pop without ever being afraid to leave their comfort zone. Their versatility and drive has allowed them to play with artists like NOFX, Death From Above 1979, Gulfer, Ptit Belliveau among many others…
