The Weeks will release their new album Easy, via Lightning Rod Records on April 7.
They have released their first single ‘Talk Like That’ off the upcoming album.
“We called it Easy because every time I make music with these guys, it’s easy. It feels good. But the other side of it is there’s nothing easy about being in a band. There’s nothing easy about staying together for ten years and still wanting to make music. We have the hardest and easiest job on the planet. But it works for us.” Thematically, Easy explores new ground for the band. Bassist Damien Bone explains, “We just wanted to make a rock record. We weren’t as concerned making it a southern rock record. The southern thing is always going to part of what we do,” frontman Cyle Barnes says about the record.
