Very often, a music video may have little to no ostensive relation to the song in which it’s accompanying.....Today, however, we were turned on to a song and its visuals that is the result of a very intriguing real-life storyline. - Under the Gun Review

A lot of bands claim to have a message in their music, but as is far too often, something gets lost or misplaced between the measures, notes, refrains. The Weekenders are a band that shatter that stereotype and turn it on its end. Their latest album is of course, filled with the riffs, 70s rock, and 90s grunge that fans have come to admire. - Celebrity Vip Lounge

"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." - Jay Hooke

"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." - Chris Axe

"The music is somewhere in a Pink Floyd/Led Zeppelin region, with elements of space rock, 70's jam and bluesy-rock all intermingled. Anyone into classic rock should give this album a shot."

Bio

The Weekenders are a raw rock n’ roll band.

The fuzz groove four piece has honed the ability to pull from some of the best elements of Rock n Roll, from Muscle Shoals to Grunge.  They have shared the stage with Blitzen Trapper, Band of Heathens, Lukas Nelson and The Stone Foxes just to name a few.
