PRESS

"I could easily describe their music by comparing them to every psychedelic band from the seventies with touches of early grunge. But a better description would be to say that they are a band with no limitations. A band that lays it all on the line with no reserves both musically and lyrically.”    -  Indie Music Reviewer

"If you are a fan of heavy 70s rock, Don’t Plan On by The Weekenders is an album you should get for yourself.”  -  LA Examiner


"Think, the days when Page and Plant reigned supreme, Leslie West was the size of a mountain and Grand Funk still had…well, funk.  The Weekenders really manage to capture that early 70′s vibe, but they’re not without they’re own modern touch.  Much like Jack White’s latest work that echos a bygone era, everything is bathed in a distinct homage to the classics.”    Ride with The Devil








Lyrics

Escape

Written By: robert reinfurt

escape - fall into your mind.
overexposed rays of light
the place where you wish to find nothing you've seen so you can let your guard down.

chorus:

you can let your guard down
diving from a falling star
please forget to miss me darling
pull the shades and bolt the door

escape - a moment in time where no thoughts reside. you can let your guard down.

escape - live inside the song where no one can harm you. you can let your guard down.
