Austin, TX band The Weird Weeds will release its second full-length, Weird Feelings, on the Sounds are Active label on August 22. The band will launch a national tour in September, with a few scattered Texas shows between now and then.
Since their inception, The Weird Weeds have been carving out a musical space for themselves that is unlike anything else around them. Weird Feelings further explores the nature of their individuality, showcasing a much more refined and fully realized sound than on their previous releases.
Clocking in at just under 30 minutes, the music of Weird Feelings is inspiring both in the subtlety of its craft and the immediacy of its emotional impact, packing more ideas into 90 seconds than most bands do in a song three times that length. It is the result of relentless performing and songwriting as well as a firm commitment to faith in their own imaginations. With Weird Feelings, The Weird Weeds have established themselves as an important voice in the worlds of both pop and experimental music. They utilize the best of each genre while adhering to the constraints of neither.
Outside of The Weird Weeds drummer and vocalist Nick Hennies has performed with Jandek, Arnold Dreyblatt, and Castanets while guitarist Aaron Russell is a member of Nashville’s legendary The Cherry Blossoms and previously joined members of Deerhoof in THETEETHE. Finally, guitarist and vocalist Sandy Ewen performs and records alongside Tom Carter under the name Spiderwebs.
