Raw energy. Lust for life. Gripping Narratives. With this unique combination as the prominent force driving this band, it is hard not to fall in love with Nashville indie-garage rockers Staying for the Weekend. Their marriage of youthful energy mixed with thought provoking lyricism establishes a unique landscape in today’s alternative rock scene.
With hook-laden songs that are simultaneously edgy and unpredictable, the band is poised for a breakout year in 2016. Combining the pop sensibility of alternative rock acts like Young the Giant and the ferocity of garage/post-punk acts like Cloud Nothings and Ty Segall, Staying for the Weekend has created a unique soundscape that captivates its audience.
Staying for the Weekend has seen their presence ascend exponentially since its inception. Between 100,000+ streams on Spotify, features on Reddit’s Listen to This, and playing packed rooms in their hometown of Nashville, the band’s incredible strides are only a precursor to what the band will achieve. They have shared the stage with the likes of Middle Class Rut, The Weeks, and R. Stevie Moore to playing at Bonnaroo and Center of the Universe to packed crowds.
Their latest single, ‘Hold Tight’ is available now on Spotify, Apple Music, and iTunes.
