Yes, that's right folks, our new album, Serenity Mountain is released today and is available to download via http://thewearyband.bandcamp.com/
We hope you enjoy it. We've been lucky enough already to have a total of 5 tracks off the album played on radio. Both Gideon Coe & Lauren Laverne have played tracks on their BBC 6 Music shows. BBC Radio Bristol have played the track "Just Because You Hate It". Also, 3 different college radio stations in Canada have played tunes off the album. All of this & we have had radio airplay in Rome, too! We hope you enjoy the album and if you do, let us know & tell other people about it. We're on what you might politely call a shoestring promotional budget. Tim's living in Norway now, but with any luck, there will be another Weary Band album recorded and released in the near distant future.

New album release tomorrow !! & our previous LP (You Can Get Lost) now stocked on vinyl by these lovely record shops in Bristol, England & Atlanta, Georgia !!
We're really pretty excited to say that our new album, "Serenity Mountain" will be released tomorrow (26 March). Also, our previous LP, "You Can Get Lost" is available on ltd edition vinyl. Come tomorrow, we'll have released 2 albums within 9 months! Rise Records (Park Street) & Face The Dawn Records (Saint Nick's Market), both in Bristol, stock the vinyl LP of You Can Get Lost. So, if you want a copy & you happen to live in Bristol, you know where you can go!
Also, our bass player's lovely wife, Lori, was recently in Atlanta, Georgia (visiting family in the USA). Now we have Criminal Records in Little 5 Points, Atlanta stocking the LP for us. Here's a pic of Lori posing with the LP & with Lillian of Criminal Records (thanks, Lillian for stocking the LP!). We're really chuffed about how good the album sounds off vinyl & it's certainly a dream come true for us to have an actual proper LP record. If you don't live in Atlanta, or Bristol & you want to buy a copy, you can contact us via facebook / e-mail, or go to http://kingbillrecords.com/

This Saturday, BBC Introducing In The West (Radio Bristol) featured a chat with our bass player Andy. Andy gave Sam Bonham from BBC Bristol a copy of our vinyl LP, "You Can Get Lost" (pictured above is Rick Thompson's photo of the vinyl LP in the USA). On the show, Sam played a track from both that LP & from the forthcoming one, "Serenity Mountain". We did a session with BBC Introducing In The West last summer & it was nice to be back on their show. Sam really likes our new album and played the track, "Just Because You Hate It",(we were going to leave this one off the album - lucky we didn't!). BBC Bristol bleeped out the word sh*t in the song with a frog croak!! Here's the link (for the next few days you can listen to the whole show via the BBC website - the feature is from approx 26 mins and 1hr 32 mins in the show).
