Weaves have announced their follow-up record to their debut, Wide Open, set for release on Friday 6th October 2017 via Buzz Records, Kanine & Memphis Industries, with the album’s first single being shared ‘#53’.

‘#53’ is the album’s opening track, and sets the tone for a record that sees the band embrace an expansive and ambitious sound that they have only hinted at on previous releases. Driven by an ascending guitar line and the frantic energy of the band’s rhythm section, who build to a dramatic crescendo that mirrors the intensity of singer Jasmyn Burke’s urgent performance, the track was, according to Burke, written in a burst of creative energy the band built up over the course of a year spent on the road in support of their debut.

We got back from the tour with Mitski on November 22nd and I started writing November 23rd,” she says. “We spent three months writing and pretty much figured out the album in its entirety in that time frame. With the year we had I think we really hit this sweet spot, where your brain is fully ready for something new, but has absorbed all of this information and it all just spews out. It was all really based on initial instinct and we just sort of let music happen.

When writing “#53” I let out how I was feeling about a lot of things. Existing on the road, existing at home, living in a time when a lot of younger people feel helpless — it’s all given me a new vigour and desire to be ferocious with our music.
