Walfad biography
Founded in Wodzisław Śląski, Poland in 2011

Walfad (We Are Looking for a Drummer) was created by Wojciech Ciuraj (vocal, guitar). Although 2nd September 2011 is considered the date of their official start, the core of the band had been active since April that year. Maksym Frączek (lead guitar) and Radosław Sitek (bass guitar) were the first members of We Are Looking For A Drummer. Then, those students of the 1st General Secondary School in Wodzisław Śląski and young musicians, they played covers of such groups as Cream, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Deep Purple.

In the meantime Radosłąw Sitek, the bass guitarist, is replaced by experienced Maciej Kucharski (Kacper's father). After three weeks of rehearsals and rising funds for the album almost until the last minute, Walfad starts working on "Ab Ovo" in LYNX MUSIC. A few months earlier the band came up with the idea for "śląski koncept album". A story of a young Silesian man, composed of such songs as Kwiaty na Hałdzie, 2013 or Pociągi, made the fans of ambitious music aware of Walfad. Despite certain lacks, the band's debut finds its buyers in, among others, Japan, USA and France. The reviewers unanimously agree that there is a great potential in the group. Maksym Frączek leaves the group right after the premiere of "AB Ovo". His substitute also unexpectedly resigns and W...
