Mississippi five-piece The Weeks make the kind of Southern-fried rock noise that brings to mind the low-down funky chops of Lynyrd Skynyrd and – a little more recently – Kings Of Leon. Those Followills are a useful touchstone. The Weeks are signed to their label Serpents & Snakes and, with all that hair, those specs and that greaser charm they resemble their benefactors in more ways than one.
The Weeks’ debut album ‘Dear Bo Jackson’ will be released over here on 15 July, spinning tales of life in the Deep South and churning out riffs tough enough to clean the varmints off your tyres. Pick up this week’s magazine to find out more about the band and check out our exclusive UK stream of the album below.
