The Weeks

Serpents and Snakes Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of Dear Bo Jackson, the eagerly anticipated label debut from The Weeks. The album arrives in stores and at all DSPs on April 30th.

Dear Bo Jackson was recorded with Grammy Award-nominated producer/engineer Paul Moak at his Nashville studio, The Smoakstack, shortly after the Jackson, Mississippi-based band's relocation to Music City USA. Drawing inspiration from such iconic works of Americana as The Band's Music From Big Pink, The Weeks enriched their already well-seasoned sonic stew with the classic flavors of soul, R&B, funk, and heavy boogie to create their own unique take on contemporary Southern rock. Big brass, lush strings, and twangy pedal steel have been fused into the band's trademark sludge pop sound, with Sam Williams' greasy guitars and the highly charged engine room of bassist Damien Bone and drummer Cain Barnes now officially joined by master keyboardist Alex Admiral Collier. Throughout the album, songs like "Brother In The Night" and the exuberant title track see Cyle Barnes' rending his throat raw as he tells dramatic and truthful tales of modern Southern lives, full of hope despite often punishing circumstances. Dear Bo Jackson shows The Weeks to be not unlike the legendary athlete of the album's title: indisputable all-stars, capable of just about anything (see attached tracklisting).

Coming together in 2006, The Weeks instantly came to define the sound of Southern Rock in the 21st Century – their grunge-powered, high-octane anthems rich with a bottomless Delta soul far deeper than the band's teenage years would suggest. Like any great rock 'n' roll outfit worth its salt, the band played as often as humanly possible, with countless club dates across the Southeast and tours alongside such like-minded acts as Local H, North Mississippi All-Stars, and the one and only Meat Puppets. Their extraordinary energy and outsized performances earned them an ever more fervent fan following, as did a series of well-received independently issued releases. Gutter Gaunt Gangster, the band's second full-length outing, earned critical applause upon its Serpents and Snakes re-release, with naming the collection among its top 10 "Outstanding 2012 Albums You Might Have Missed."

The stars were aligned when childhood friends Nathan Jake Merli (vocals, guitar, hair gel), Christopher Cool (bass, korg, driving), Tanner Cooper (drums, mandolin) decided to put their studies on hold in pursuit of triumphant face-melting. This Charleston-bred trio may be known for their dark, nostalgic pop tunes, but offer a compelling, energetic performance on stage. Their music is reminiscent of bands such as The Cure, Nada Surf, and early Strokes spiked with an experimental blend of Broken Social Scene meets On A Friday. After spending the year touring with acts such as Surfer Blood, Mutemath, & Miniature Tigers, they began to work on their upcoming release with producer Josh Kaler (William Fitzsimmons, Jump Little Children) in December of 2012.
