We Bless This Mess“ is a project created by the musician and tattoo artist Nelson Graf Reis, a guy moved through his passions and beliefs. Influenced by his punk-rock environment, WBTM arises by the need to explore the premise “less is more” and the desire to externalize a true positive consciousness to the world: “We breathe, we’re alive. This is the greatest gift and it’s simple”, Nelson adds.
The project has performed alongside with names such as Beans On Toast (UK), State Champs (USA), Our Last Night (USA), Tim Vantol (NED), Sam Alone (PT) and Ducking Punches (UK) and festivals like The Fest (Florida, USA), Punk Rock Holiday (Slovenia) Eurosonic (Netherlands) or Reeperbahn (Germany). The first full band album “Awareness Songs and Side Stories” is out since the 14th of September of this year. The first single “Ocean” was released on 29th September 2017, followed by the second single, “Intentions”, which was released on the 11th of May 2018. WBTM performs solo and/or as a trio format.
