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.

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
But for now, see you somewhere in those cities!

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.

Here's a simple and humble picture. Despite appearances, this one says more than it seems. Here's what it really tells...

We never thought we'd still be around half a decade later to be honest as this music world seemed quite complex, not to say a little fucked up sometimes. But what we didn't know when we decided to make the big jump is that it was going to be a wonderful experience and journey alongside so many beautiful artists and precious souls. First of all I'm speaking about those amaz...

Sooo... we were supposed to share today the release of Second Still's new ep "Equals" but we've had a problem with the plant due to a packaging quite challenging to produce. We won't have it before May 9th... Which is quite a party killer since the band will hit the European roads in about ten days...
BUT!!! We've been working very hard to fix this situation and we've done a very special EU TOUR EDITION. It is limited to 100 copies and the band will have that one on the first half of the tour. For this occasion, we've done an alternative artwork so this one is completely di...
