The Weeks are set to release their debut album 'Dear Bo Jackson' on May 27th.
The Southern states of America have provided some remarkable fuel for pop culture. Blues, jazz, soul and more owe a debt to the deep South, with the area providing a rich bedrock for anyone steeped in music lore.
The Weeks obviously know their history. Steeped in Southern lore, the band's touchstones include classic Memphis soul and that 70s swamp rock sound.
Signed to Serpents & Snakes - the label run by Kings Of Leon - the group recently completed work on their debut album. 'Dear Bo Jackson' will be given a British release by Columbia, with the LP set to see the light of day on May 27th.
Columbia co-President Alison Donald said: “The Weeks epitomise all that is exciting and exhilarating about Southern rock’n’roll, mashed up with a good dose of all sorts of other genres - be it indie, funk or even punk. We are absolutely delighted to be working with them at Columbia.”
Recorded in Nashville with Grammy Award-nominated producer Paul Moak, the album will be preceded by new single 'Brother In The Night'.
'Dear Bo Jackson' will be released on May 27th.
Oh, and one more thing... The Weeks will be taking part in the Serpents & Snakes showcase at SXSW, supported by All Saints and Clash Magazine. Fancy heading along? Click HERE to find out how to RSVP.
