Their most recent, 2018 album is a 10th anniversary re-issue of “Asleep at Heaven’s Gate”, and will feature four previously unreleased tracks.

Rogue Wave’s website shares some insight on the ideals that bring them again and again to doing what they love.

“Drawing inspiration from the inevitable delusions of everyday American life, Rogue, his longtime bandmate Pat Spurgeon, and their fellow members have returned reinvigorated, and with a fresh sound founded on the art of patience, the fearlessness of experimenting, and the unbridled joy of creating something meaningful to help us navigate through these vacant times”. 

The members of Rogue Wave are Zach Rogue (vocals, guitar, wurlitzer), Pat Spurgeon (drums, keyboard, samples, vocals), Jon Monohan (guitar, synth), Masanori Christianson (bass), and Nyles Lennon (synth, vocals).
