When I last checked in with Weatherstate, lead vocalist Harry Hoskins shared some of the insight that went into their new album Never Better as well as the latest single/music video for ”Headstone.” As I continued to explore the band’s sound on this full-length record, I became enamored with the direction the band took on this 11-song LP that hits its intended target more often than not. In addition to band leader Harry Hoskins, Weatherstate is comprised of Callan Milward (lead guitar), Joe Hogan (bass), and Toby Wrobel (drums) who each have at least one standout moment on Never Better. Hoskins shared this about the direction the band took, “Never Better stems from a place of monotony, helplessness, and apathy at the state of the world around us. The record reaches out to different feelings that many of us have experienced over the last few years, from a state of mind that is pessimistic when faced with the question, will things ever improve? Lyrically this album touches on personal grief, abusive & toxic relationships, losing touch with the things that you once loved growing, and overall acceptance that it is what it is, and you sometimes have to buckle up and move forward to keep yourself sane.” With so much relatable material, Weatherstate may have just made your next favorite album.Read More “Weatherstate – Never Better”
Today I’m beyond thrilled to share the latest music video for a UK-based punk band called Weatherstate for their song “Headstone.” The song comes from their upcoming Rude Records set called Never Better, out everywhere on February 11th. The band shared this about the new single:
Probably the second softest song on the record, and not being as morbid as the name might suggest, ‘Headstone’ is about trying to make something out of ourselves in the time we have here. It’s okay to go through periods of life unhappy and that’s what makes the good bits all the better. ‘Catch me I don’t want to come down’ specifically relates to friends being around when you need a safety net, and how important it is to have the support network that can get you through those monotonous times. We’re only around here for so long, and that’s the way it is, we shouldn’t beat ourselves up too much, and it’s completely okay to sometimes just roll with the punches.
I also had a chance to catch up with lead vocalist, Harry Hoskins, before the release of Never Better. If you’re enjoying the singles that have hit the streets thus far, consider pre-ordering the record here.Read More “Weatherstate – “Headstone” (Video Premiere)”
