Weimar are very happy to announce the release of their new single, “The Girls of LA”, on Friday 25th March.
The single will be released digitally through German Shepherd Records and in CD format via Marlene’s Hat Records.
The single musically takes cues from classic 70s proto-punk such as The Velvet Underground and The Modern Lovers, combined with touches of 90s alt and college rock. Lyrically, the song is an ode to the bottle-service girls who work the bars and clubs of Los Angeles, who use the money from their bar work to finance their wider careers in Hollywood and in the business world. It is written as an anthem to their business prestige and headstrong pursuit of career goals, serving as a positive reflection on the American Dream and the road to stardom. As such, it provides a flash of positivity much needed in the dark period of history we’re currently in, and is a marked contrast to the brooding cynicism that characterizes much of Weimar’s material.
The single is produced by Adam Crossley and Chris Guest of Vibratone Sound Studio, while the cover art is by acclaimed artist and writer Brian Gorman.
The single comes with the B-side “Transatlantic Confusion” – a song originally recorded by Weimar vocalist Aidan Cross’s former band The Bacillus on their 2011 album “I Can’t Adapt To This Prison You Call Society”, which has been reworked in a Weimar makeover after becoming a live favourite at their gigs.
And that’s not all – 24th June 2022 will see the release of their long-awaited debut album, “Dancing On A Volcano”. The album will be released digitally and on CD via the same labels. More details of the album release will follow shortly!
The single does not feature on the album, they are two completely separate projects and the album contains 12 brand new and previously unreleased songs.
Stay tuned for more announcements and details regarding both releases!
