After a short summer break and the writing of material for their third album nearly complete, WEIRD. have announced there is a new single on the horizon first, for which they are offering a work-in-progress teaser, a somewhat minimalistic version of the track-to-come. They have also announced they will tour this month, with dates confirmed in various cities in Italy, France and Switzerland, and have just released a new live video of ‘Infinite Decay’ as a taste of what to expect.

During the Italian leg of the tour, they will tour with New York’s legendary shoegaze outfit THE VELDT, key protégés of Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins) and contemporaries of A.R.Kane. The Veldt will be touring Italy for the first time as part of their wider European tour, in promotion of their new EP ‘The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur’.

With a rich history of touring with the likes of The Jesus and Mary ChainCocteau Twins, and TV on the Radio, they have also played with The Pixies, Echo & The Bunnymen, Throwing Muses, Manic Street Preachers, Oasis, Living Colour and many other cult artists. Most recently they toured with The Brian Jonestown Massacre for their U.S. East coast dates. The Veldt will finally tour Italy thanks to the efforts of Lady Sometimes Records, visiting between dates at several major European festivals (Reverence Festival, Liverpool Psych Festival, and GataFest Sweden).

The release of Weird.’s 2015 album ‘A Long Period of Blindness’ was celebrated with a successful 40-gig tour throughout Italy. The album was met with positive reviews both in Italy and abroad. Thanks to their unique mix of noisy distortion, dreamy melodies and reverb-laden harmonies, the band has been listed among the lead figures of contemporary Italian psych-gaze, along with the likes of Stella Diana, Be Forest, Rev Rev Rev, Brothers in Law, Novanta and Clustersun.
While waiting for the new single to be released, catch the band at one of the following concerts and enjoy their latest videos for ‘Infinite Decay’ and ‘Dead Wax’. Also find ‘A Long Period of Blindness’, which is available on CD and 12″ vinyl, as well as digitally, through Lady Sometimes Records.
