The Weaks Announce New Record, BAD YEAR Posted 23 Feb 2015

The Weaks have a new record!!!! The band will be releasing their first full length, Bad Year, on April 7th via Lame-O Records. 

After the release of their 2014 debut EP The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And Want To DieThe Weaks went to work on creating the best rock and roll record of the decade. Bad Year, the first full length record from The Weaks, is filled with more guitars than all the songs you've heard on the radio in the last ten years combined. Slowly making their way towards superstardom, The Weaks have taken everything you love about Weezer, Superchunk and Cheap Trick and squeezed them together in eleven tracks of purified rock. 

The Weaks keep the same tongue in cheek tomfoolery that earned them their cult following with The World Is A Terrible Place (see Bad Year tracks 2, 9 & 11), and just like on that EP, Bad Year's cheeky titling is fully backed up by well-crafted, beautifully recorded, brilliantly catchy songs. The songwriting duo of Evan Bernard and Chris Baglivo  may be silly, but they are no joke. Alternating between shredding rockers and pop-y sing-alongs, The Weaks have put their back into delivering you your new favorite record. 

 
The band will be touring in April with Brand New. Dates for those shows can be found below. 
Pre-orders for Bad Year go live Wednesday, February 25th, 2015 via the Lame-O Records webstore

Steady Hands Stream "We Will Rise" on New Noise Magazine! Posted 07 Aug 2014

http://newnoisemagazine.com/exclusive-stream-steady-hands-we-will-rise/

Stream the new song "We Will Rise" off of Brandy Of The Damned over on New Noise Magazine! The official release date is August 19th, but you can re-order your copy of the EP physically or digitally now! Here's what Sean had to say about writing "We Will Rise."

“We Will Rise” is a song I wrote while on a trip to Ireland in September. The song started with a melody I would hum to myself on my many walks around the city of Dublin, and turned into what I intended as a simple, classic protest song. At the time I was writing a series of songs that were more political than anything I had before. While I wasn’t driving particularly into deep political issues, I wanted to write about the themes that I had dealt with most, specifically treatment and healthcare of the elderly, living and surviving in a working class, and religious pressure and intimidation. The arrangement resulted in a simple acoustic guitar and vocals, to which my pianist Andrew added both organ and acoustic piano. We wanted to make it sound as gospel as possible, which ironically is the first music he and I performed together growing up in catholic school.

Lame-O Announced Steady Hands' EP 'Brandy Of The Damned!' Posted 30 Jul 2014

New EP from Steady Hands!!!! The record will be released on Lame-O on August 19th! Check out the first single "Pretty Good Year" over on Property Of Zack !

The EP can be pre-orded on CD over in our store or digitally on the Lame-O Bandcamp page.

Steady Hands is the seven piece folk punk band started by Modern Baseball's Sean Huber. Based on gritty vocals and pretty melody, the band has released 3 EPs, slowly building in excellence with each new song. Brandy Of The Damned is the latest and greatest from the band. Inspired by Billy Bragg, Bruce Springsteen, Frank Turner, and other classic punk influenced songwriters, Huber created the perfect collection of snarly folk songs. With the simplicity and rawness of a sole honest voice and acoustic guitar, Huber wears his heart on his sleeve and the gruff in his voice like a trophy. 

Make sure to also catch Steady Hands on the road all this August!
