The Weeks 4-track ‘Buttons’ EP will be released on Jan 26th 2015 via Caroline / Serpents and Snakes.
“Buttons” was released in the US only at the end of Summer 2014 in time to celebrate the 7th anniversary of the band and saw heavy radio support from Nashville, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Peoria, Burlington, Auburn, Albany, Ocean City and more.
The EP includes two revisited songs from their original release and two brand new compositions. The highlight is a re-recording of the first song they ever wrote (at 15 years of age), “Buttons.” It is a fan favorite and their most requested song, and was never properly captured on tape until now.
This UK Tour sees The Weeks back on the road after winding down from a busy tour schedule in support of their last LP release “Dear Bo Jackson”, which saw acclaim from The Guardian, Music Week, Glamour Magazine and more. The Band played over 175 shows in 6 different countries and wrapped up with 2014 Summer Festival dates that included Bonnaroo, Firefly, Forecastle, Wakurusa, Mountain Jam, Shaky Knees, and the Turf Festival in Toronto. The full-length follow up to Dear Bo Jackson is currently being recorded for a early Spring 2015 release.
Born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, The Weeks (Cyle Barnes – vocals; Sam Williams – guitar; Damien Bone – bass; Cain Barnes – drums; Alex Admiral Collier – keyboards) came together in 2006 and 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 boys’ teenage years would suggest.
