Mississippi natives The Weeks have just announced details of their highly anticipated return to Ireland with a show at Dublin’s Academy 2 on Saturday January 24th 2015.
The indie rock band are winding down a hectic touring schedule, on the back of their 2013 LP release ‘Dear Bo Jackson, and have gigged in 6 different countries with over 175 shows and a number of summer festivals in 2014, including, Bonnaroo, Firefly, Forecastle, Wakurusa, Mountain Jam, Shaky knees and the Turf Festival in Toronto.
The band have a four song EP called ‘Buttons’ released to commemorate their 7th anniversary. They started off when they were 15!
The single ‘Buttons’ has already hit some major radio stations across the States and is only getting bigger.
Tickets are priced at €14 including booking fee and are on sale from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and Ticketmaster.ie.
The Weeks are on an EP promotional tour as support for Deer Tick, with a string out headlining dates that will take them out up the East Coast of the US, but the tour has taken a break since October so they can tour the UK and Ireland.
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.
