With the release of their new EP ‘Dumbstruck’ imminent, Weatherstate are streaming the five-track collection in its entirety so you can hear these riff nuggets early.
‘Dumbstruck’ will be released via Failure By Design this week and to celebrate its birth into the world, Weatherstate will be touring the UK next month with support from Wallflower.
With a sound somewhere between Sum 41, Weezer and earlier Green Day, ‘Dumbstruck’ sees Bristol-based Weatherstate find their feet and evolve their sound, offering something completely fresh whilst also endearingly nostalgic. From the immediate urgency of ‘Stutter’ to the huge, anthemic, riff-laden chorus of ‘ILL’ and the melancholic self-loathing singalong-ready ‘Grinding My Teeth’ this really is the record Weatherstate have been leading up to since their inception.
Weatherstate made 2015 a busy year for themselves. Recently signing to Failure By Design Records and getting regular airtime on Kerrang! Radio, they’ve toured with Trash Boat as well as sharing the stages with Creeper, Gnarwolves, Milk Teeth, Decade, Homebound and many others. The band are set to hit the road hard throughout 2016.
