The Weight set to release Are Men on March 10th via Tee Pee Records

The Weight's 2009 release Are Men marks an interesting evolution of the group's sound. What was once a singer-songwriter-with-backing band is now simply a band. Of men.

PROMOTIONAL MP3: CLOSER THAN A FRIEND

Are Men reveals a sound and feel very much different from 2004's 10 Mile Grace, which found the group working within the framework of earnest alt-country executed by post-punk kids. In contrast, Are Men brings a sense of light-hearted fun-timin' to the songwriting and execution (more country-rock block party, less alt). It's the sound of a band enjoying the process. Sing-along choruses, three-part harmonies, psych guitar freak-outs, rowdy gang vocals all things people love...so The Weight have discovered.For the similarly post-jaded kids and honest fans of Americana, Are Men sounds like the record you actually enjoy listening to.

THE WEIGHT UPCOMING TOUR DATES:
January 9th - New York, NY - Johnny Utah's
January 15th - Brooklyn, NY - Union Pool
