Manchester Indie Rockers Weimar Release Debut Record, ‘Dancing On A Volcano’

Manchester art-rock quartet Weimar have released their debut album ‘Dancing On a Volcano’ on CD via German Shepherd Records and digitally via Marlene’s Hat Records. These 12 tracks take the listener on an unpredictable excursion through the socio-political and personal challenges of our modern age.

The first taste of the album was ‘Soho Rain’ featuring Leeds-based artist Finola, which is dedicated to the old Soho district of London (the city’s seediest square mile), its dying culture and the many artistic and cultural movements that emerged there. Earlier this year, the band also released the 2-track single ‘The Girls of LA’ with New Order-esque B-side ‘Transatlantic Confusion’.

Embracing post-punk to no wave, cabaret, psychedelia, alternative folk and gothic rock, all blended in a distinctive fusion, this album was produced by Adam Crossley and Chris Guest of Vibratone Sound Studio. The cover art was created by acclaimed artist and writer Brian Gorman.

Since forming in 2016 and hitting the live circuit, Louder Than War named Weimar amongst its 50 Bands To Watch for 2019, the year they debuted the single ‘John Doe / Curse the Songs’, followed by ‘Marvel To The State / Undesirable Master’. Having worked with legendary post-punk producer Simon ‘Ding’ Archer, they’ve also played with Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets) and goth legends Skeletal Family.
‘Dancing On A Volcano’ LP is available everywhere, including SpotifyApple Music and Bandcamp. It can also be ordered on CD directly from the band.
