With three independant EP releases under their belt, Weathered have joined the Facedown Records Family, adding a refined, superbly crafted debut LP to their discography. In their first album Stranger Here, Weathered reveals perfectly counterbalanced subtleties of shoe-gaze with ample alt rock allure. The sing-alongable choruses and cathartic vocal hooks, especially on songs like "Forget About Me" and "Lying In Wait," give the album a relaxed, familiar feel. Weathered address strong lyrical themes on Stranger Here, making grace and forgiveness the nucleus of the album.
The Minnesota four-piece reveal the mission statement behind the title of the album: "Our natural desire to run away from God and do things that are spiritually detrimental to us can make us feel like strangers around the people we re supposed to be closest to. Stranger Here lays bare the flaws of humanity, but it also whispers grace, and reveals a warm glimmer of hopefulness."
Weathered are back with their sophomore release Everything All At Once the follow up to 2018's Stranger Here. The Minneapolis based four piece may be best described now as an emo outfit flickering with optimism. The new album builds on the band's keen grasp of chill alt-rock while sprinkling in a fresh, well-timed grunge vibe. While Weathered's debut was a more relaxed and laid back album, Everything All At Once has more gravity, a decidedly guitar-driven urgency also mirrored in the lyrics, and lyrically speaking, Everything All At Once is a vast collection of stories.
Vocalist Justin Heib: "The lyrics were written over a 2-3 year period where a lot was changing and I was growing. I realised I like writing about other people and from other points of view. We just wanted to write the best songs possible, even if some of the songs seem like a departure from what we usually write. We wanted this record to have some unpredictability to it."
