Their Upcoming Album titled Easy is set for Release on April 7 via Lightning Rod Records
A quartet from Jackson, Mississippi known as The Weeks is quickly becoming one of the next powerhouses within modern rock music. The band has a new album on the horizon titled Easy, and it is due out April 7.
Damien Bone, bassist in The Weeks, shares his point of view on putting together their latest album.
“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.” – Damien Bone, Bassist
The video for ‘Talk Like That’ is directed by The Weeks’ drummer Cain Barnes. ‘Gold Don’t Rust‘ and ‘Talk Like That’ both appear on their upcoming album Easy.
The album was recorded over two weeks in Memphis, Tennessee. They cut the record at Ardent Studios with producer Paul Ebersold.
