Post-punk outfit Weekend have been touring Europe for the past month and have just released some new dates (if you live state-side…details below).

But… if you’re like me and have never had the chance to catch a live show, don’t fret! There’s still some Weekend love to go round in the form of a new EP ‘Red’ which is due this spring/fall (depending on your hemisphere) from Slumberland Records.

‘End Times’ is a stand out track from their 2010 debut album ‘Sports’. The intro of this one immediately calls to mind Joy Division but it quickly gets more melodic. There’s also a video that combines the third and fourth track ‘Monday Morning & Monongah, WV’ from ‘Sports’ into one hypnotic epic…
