Among the bands keeping emo raw and real during the genre's mainstream breakout of the early 2000s was DC/Virginia's Fairweather, whose second and final album before breaking up, 2003's Lusitania, was one of the better (and comparatively overlooked) albums of its kind. The band called it quits only months after releasing that album, but briefly regrouped eight years later for a DC show at the Black Cat, and they're now set to release their first album since reuniting. The new album, which will be their third overall, is self-titled and comes out on April 1 via longtime label Equal Vision Records (pre-order). The album's new single, "Last Words," makes its premiere in this post, and you can listen, along with the LP artwork and tracklist, below.

Fairweather will celebrate the new album with another show at the Black Cat in March with Black Clouds, ex-Jawbox frontman J. Robbins, and Highness (ex-Christie Front Drive). It's their only announced date at the moment.

Stream the new single, plus Lusitania's title track for old time's sake, below...

I don't need to listen to this to know that's it's bad mall rock.

The one on the far left works at my local GameStop, he's always trying to get me to preorder Gears of War or something.

Wow. Lots of negative judgement based on a picture going on here. But I guess that's what the internet is for, narrow minded reactive behavior by children who's opinions don't really matter.

So excited to hear new stuff! One of the greatest bands of the times that has been overlooked as society has grown even dumber than the levels previously anticipated.
