Mistletoes and Warheads is an indie band based out of Rochester, New York. MW was originally started as a solo project by front man Nelson Scott back in April 2011. Shortly after releasing two albums and feeling discouraged, Scott quit his solo project in September 2012. Shortly after, he was approached by drummer Justin Au-Yeung. After jamming for a bit, Nelson added his good friend Andrew Love to the mix as a guitarist and vocalist. The three teenagers quickly bonded over their love for the music. Mistletoes and Warheads currently plays around the Rochester area, hitting up coffee shops and underground basement shows. They spend their downtime practicing in Au-Yeung's basement, recording tracks, and running around Fairport, New York. Their style is a mix of punk, garage, and adult alternative.
