The Weaks releasing ‘The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And I Want To Die’ EP (stream it)

by Andrew Sacher

Weaks

Philly duo The Weaks (aka Evan Bernard and Chris Baglivo, both ex-Dangerous Ponies) aren’t shy about calling themselves products of the ’90s, which is certainly the vibe you get from their upcoming EP, The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And I Want To Die (nice), due out next week (2/11) via Lame-O Records (the label that gave us Modern Baseball before they signed to Run For Cover). They sound like they’ve absorbed much of the decade’s punk and power pop, ending up with a mix that should appeal to fans of Weezer, Built to Spill, Jawbreaker and anything in between. And like Weezer, they don’t shy away from some classic rock influences, ripping a few guitar hero solos during those power chord bashers.

Evan and Chris were joined by some of their Philly pals in the making of the EP, including members of Hop Along and Algernon Cadwallader. Though it won’t be out for a week, you can pre-order it now (including a bundle with the band’s homemade hot sauce) and a full stream of the EP makes its premiere in this post. Their only upcoming date at the moment is a release show in their hometown this Friday (2/7).
