After their signing to Rude Records at the end of 2020, Weatherstate have released their first track on the label they’ll now call home.
‘Hangar’was produced remotely by Four Year Strong’s Alan Day.
There’s some massive Pop-Punk hooks in their and some great vocals in the new track and it’s a brand new chapter for the band.
This is the first release of new music from the band since the release of their 2019 full length record, ‘Born A Cynic’.
The band says on the track:
“The track is about a phone call to a friend last summer, about how f*cked everything is. Growing numb and bitter towards everything and everyone, but also learning to find peace within our own individual coping mechanisms. Understanding that sometimes a crutch is needed to stay sane, whether that be self-destructive, or progressive through the helping hand of a friend.”
“It goes without saying but doing everything remotely has been a massive challenge and an interesting obstacle to overcome,” admits guitarist Callan Milward. “Especially for us, as we have been pretty traditionalist when it comes to writing. I feel we handled it in the best way we could, considering the international side of things too. With pre-production, we had to have some late nights because of the time-zone differences. Neil Kennedy at The Ranch really nailed the engineering and Alan smashed the mix over in the States. All I can say is that you can work miracles over Zoom these days.”
