Weekend – 'Hazel' Saturday 27 August, 2011
After salivating over the upcoming release of new material from Weekend, the rock gods have delivered! That is, the rock gods at Slumberland Records who have given fans a taste of Weekend’s new single ‘Hazel’. The post punk outfit have officially announced the ‘Red’ EP will be available on September 20! This follows Weekend’s much loved ‘Sports’ album released in 2010.
“The goal for the EP was to remove some of the haze from the first LP and be up front about all the fucked up things that were happening musically and lyrically,” says Weekend bassist/singer Shaun Durkan in a press release.
“We’ve always been interested in indulgence and restraint and we tried to push that further with these recordings,” adds guitarist Kevin Johnson. “Maybe this song doesn’t have a guitar in it, or maybe we use a synthesizer or there’s no distortion or no drums. We were pulling back to make everything a little more searing.”
