Common Blah is the debut full-length by Portland, Maine’s Weakened Friends, which is schedule to be released on October 19th via Don Giovanni Records.
Listen below to the band’s new track “Peel“.
Sonia Sturino on “Peel”: “The lyrics of peel are pretty self explanatory, especially to anyone who’s ever suffered from panic attacks or anxiety attacks. The feeling like you’re drowning or just stuck in this awful place inside your own head that you can’t break out of regardless of how hard you try. The feeling of ruining a good moment and having it totally be out of your own control. That being said peel is probably the fuzziest and loudest track on the record which makes it super fun to play, so it’s a nice reward to have a song like this to go to even if it’s subject matter stems out of the worst feelings I have”.
The band will tour the US and Europe throughout the fall, including stops at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris and The Fest in Gainesville.
