WEYRD SON RECORDS NEXT THREE RELEASES
A year and a half after we dropped our latest releases, stepping back a little and enjoying the little things of life, now's the time to get back on tracks with what we're good at...
Today we are finally sharing three of the many names we've been working closely lately.
First one is no other than New Yorkers of Pop. 1280, a band that's been dear to me from the day their music raped my ears back in 2012 with their album "The Horror". Their new record is now in production and is expected to pop (no pun intended) early December.
Then it's gonna be the time to share SURE. 's first LP with the world by the end of December/early January. The French trio will bring the moodiest feel to your dancefloor. You can already find the song "Precious Words" out there, so you know what I'm talking about.
And last but not least, February will mark the so much awaited return of one of the most precious band on our roster... I'm talking about GLAARE of course, hitting with the follow up to their perfect first LP "To Deaf And Day" I've ruined on my turntables with the millions of spins it got.
Don't sleep, first excerpts of all those three bands' records will be unveiled really soon. Presales will start soon as well.
Enough said. Till next time.
WEYRD SON RECORDS IN NUMBERS AND WHAT'S COMING NEXT
Six years after its creation, here's what Weyrd Son Records is all about in numbers. Also time to focus on what's next. New bands, new releases. Announcements will follow tomorrow!
SECOND STILL LIVE SESSION FOR
Maybe Second Still found a new home with Fabrika Rec but the trio and myself found the time to team up again to film the session we did for the best tour management company in the world Highway Holidays
Filmed and edited by myself (Michael Thiel) and sound and mix by Guy Tournay
MICHAEL OF WEYRD SON RECORDS IN THRESHOLD MAGAZINE
Sunday's read. Get yourself a nice cup of tea, sit back, relax and take a dive into that long but ultimately nice and intimate interview directed by the dear and long time supporter Sónia of Threshold Magazine.
7 AO MÊS COM WEYRD SON RECORDS
IN THRESHOLD MAGAZINE
I was requested by the dearest enthusiast and amazing supporter Sónia at Threshold Magazine to share seven songs/albums/bands that had a great influence on me and on my work as a label owner. This goes in lots of directions and I could name so many more but I think these 7 references are the ones that define me the most today. It is both in Portuguese and in English.
THOT EU SPRING TOUR
You've probably noticed Weyrd Son Records has been taking some time off for quite a while now. I've been busy with other stuff (understand taking a break from the label world craze). Also, unless you were living in a cave for the past months, you probably know I officially integrated THOT, one of the bands that is on Weyrd Son Rec's roster. And we're delighted to announce today the forthcoming EU Spring tour to kick off on March 4, taking us on the wild roads of Belgium, Italy, Romania, Hungary and Slovenia. Once this is behind us, we'll focus again on the label and we'll announce the next releases that should start to flourish around Aug/Sept

VOWWS X CHINO MORENO (DEFTONES) on
STRUCTURE OF LOVE
Once again VOWWS is responsible for some of the best things to hear out there. This time they're teaming up with the one and only Chino Moreno (Deftones), whose music has got a huge influence on younger me (and still does to this day). This remix of Structure Of Love is an ultimate crusher.
Play. Repeat. Again. And again.
