Weller





Weekend Warrior, June 29 - July 1

Tonight, Everybody Hits hosts Weller celebrating their self-titled debut album, which is being re-issued today via Tiny Engines. Composed succinct melodies envelop in a relaxed revealing jangle. Holding a place of comfort by lyrically unlatching the inner-workings, there’s a continuous desire to find one’s footing and/or fit in the world at large. That ongoing existential search may never truly end, rather just morph, but the ongoing evaluation is one which can be viewed as a self-portrait that many others can see themselves in. Currently in the midst of a run of dates with Animal Flag and with a new album in the works, The Obsessives help fortify this lineup, which also includes the soothing, shoegazing darkness of So Totally and the intricately-woven, experimental folk of The Human Fly. – Michael Colavita

New Weller LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The trio of Weller recently shared its self-titled debut LP, which was produced by Jake Ewald (Modern Baseball, Slaughter Beach, Dog). Songwriting, soaked in emotive sincerity, forges a natural bond. Braiding heart-panging relatability with an upbeat energy, these songs make one feel less alone and hopeful of breaking through the fear. After touring for the better part of the last month, Weller will be returning home this Saturday, November 4 at JJ's Diner for the band's record release celebration that will also include Three Man Cannon, Allegra, and Beach Bod.

New Track: "Point of Personal Privilege" - Weller

“Point of Personal Privilege” serves as the second single off Weller’s full-length debut, due out on October 20. Gradually illustrating a poignant heart-wrenching tale, that optimistic imagery is torn to pieces by the harshness of reality. Somber self-evaluations, accentuated by the warm build of backing harmonies, come crashing, battered by swells of tension-releasing instrumentation. On Saturday, November 4, JJ’s Diner will be hosting the band’s record release show, with Three Man Cannon and Allegra rounding out the lineup.

New Track: "Learning Curves" - Weller

The trio of Weller will release their debut self-titled full-length album on October 20. Its lead single, “Learning Curves,” rolls forward as a reflective tale of continuous evaluation while overthinking consumes one's mind. Sometimes you can get stuck in an endless loop of self-sabotage, and it's best to take a step back and reevaluate. Weller will be holding a record release celebration on SAturday, November 4 at JJ's Diner, supported by Three Man Cannon and Allegra. (Photo by Emily Dubin)
