HELSINKI’S ‘WEEPIKES’ REUNITE!

PRONK ALT-ROCK BAND INSPIRED TO RECORD ONCE AGAIN

THE WEEPIKES CAME TOGETHER AS A BAND IN 1994 AND OVER THREE YEARS PUT OUT A HANDFUL OF RELEASES, ON FINNISH INDIE LABELS SUCH AS BAD VUGUM & TRASH CAN RECORDS. THEIR MUSIC IS THE  TYPE OF NOISE ROCK THAT MAKES YOU ALL NOSTALGIC FOR THE EARLY 90’S, REMINDING YOU OF OTHER BANDS SUCH AS THE PIXIES (CHECK THE ‘WHAT ABOUT’ TRACK BELOW!)

THE BAND LIKES TO THINK OF THEIR SOUND AS A MELANGE OF PUNK AND PROG-ROCK…BUT YOU CAN MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND…DOWNLOAD THEIR TUNES FOR FREE, LISTEN AND TELL US WHAT YOU THINK!

IN 2010 THE BAND DECIDED TO GET BACK TOGETHER, THE LINE-UP REMAINED THE SAME, APART FROM THE DRUMMER. THEY WERE SOON CONTACTED VIA MYSPACE BY NYC BASED PRODUCER, ENGINEER AND LABEL OWNER (SHIMMY-DISC), KRAMER, WHO IS KNOWN FOR HIS PAST WORK WITH WEEN, JOY ZIPPER, URGE OVERKILL AND MANY MORE. KRAMER LOVED THEIR SOUND AND OFFERED TO MIX AND MASTER A COUPLE OF SONGS FOR THEIR NEW PROMO DISC…THE RESULT IS PRETTY GREAT INDEED.

THE BAND HAS YET TO BE SIGNED…STAY TUNED THOUGH, BECAUSE I DON’T THINK IT’LL BE LONG BEFORE THEY ARE….THIS STUFF IS BRILLIANT!
