Brand new EP and tour dates
Having released their new EP ‘Dumbstruck’ last month, Weatherstate have revealed the latest single from the record, along with accompanying music video. According to frontman Harry Hoskins, ‘Stuck In A Hole’ “is about feeling braindead working a repetitive job, and searching for escapism from that feeling.” The band hit the road this week in celebration of the release.
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.
