Featherweight's debut album, THE DISASTER HANDBOOK, might be the perfect recording for a long drive or a breezy summer afternoon. However, upon further review and a ticket to the band's electric live performances, you'll realize staying in your seat is only an option if you have a seatbelt on.

Biography

Featherweight is a New York based 5 piece that brings with it as much savvy and storytelling as one might expect but delivers it all in a
decidedly different sound then most of New York's current rock bands.
Their new album, THE DISASTER HANDBOOK, is an eclectic mix of intelligent pop song craft from both the past and future that bends
and blends genres with ease. This band is comfortable pushing the sonic envelope (see the distorted choir that opens the record or the
impassioned pleadings of Sick Man that close it). They can just as easily slow down, look you in the eyes and break your heart. With powerful hooks right out of an early 80's playlist and emotional
lyrics firmly grounded in the traditions of the classic
singer/songwriter, Featherweight's debut album, THE DISASTER HANDBOOK,
might be the perfect recording for a long drive or a breezy summer afternoon. However, upon further review and a ticket to the band's
electric live performances, you'll realize staying in your seat is only an option if you have a seatbelt on.
