Walter Etc. is the brainchild of Dustin Cole Hayes, who has been creating music (originally asWalter Mitty and His Makeshift Orchestra), writing, videos, and art for over a decade. Based inVentura, CA he co-runs the label and art collective Making New Enemies withMilk Flud, andhas worked alongsideJeff Rosenstockand Ian Farmer (Slaughter Beach, Dog/ModernBaseball) in the studio. Walter’s newest album “There There” (self-released via Making NewEnemies, May 2021) showcases the band’s return to a home-recorded and self-producedapproach. With a revolving door of band members and a foray into different genres, it is Hayes’sgift for lyricism and DIY ethos that holds all of his projects together in one cohesive canon.

CMMNWLTH has 1 full length album and a handful of EPs under their belt and is hoping to have their newest full length out by Fall of 2023.
