Here on altrocklife, as much as I enjoy reviewing and writing about more mainstream bands, sometimes it’s good to discover new, underground bands. Today’s focus is the Wolverhampton post punk band, WEAK13. They recently released the music video for their track Obey The Slave, from their debut album They Live which was released last year. You can watch the video here:
The DIY music video was filmed in a real Magistrates Court, and the themes of the song and video revolve around law and order, questioning authority, and political activism. This track is packed full of powerful lyrics, much like the rest of their debut album, which has themes of love and loss, death and heartbreak, and what the future may bring.
WEAK13 is currently preparing to record their second as yet untitled studio album with producer John Stewart at FrEQ in Coventry, England. Frontman and guitarist Nick J Townsend revealed:
“We were so impressed with the engineering by Stewart on the They Live album; it’s important news that we’ll be able to work with him again and we know already that he’ll do the new material the justice it deserves.”
The They Live album contains the song Obey The Slave and is only available from the WEAK13 website.
