A brand new single titled ‘Joke‘ was released on Amazon and iTunes on March 13th (2014) and is a teaser for the much anticipated debut studio album produced by John Stewart of British band Eight Great Fears. What fans weren’t expecting was the announcement on April Fools day that WEAK13 had released another music video. Previous music videos have shown the band mocking the media world in Sex Pest (2013), fighting in the trenches of World War 1 in Wake Down (2010) and wondering the dream world in Nothing to Lose (2011) but in this years offering the band have taken a strong satiristic approach and chosen The White House and the American Presidency to be the subject matter of the music video to Joke (2014).

‘Joke’ becomes their 11th music video which was produced by the band themselves and filmed by noted production company Fifty Seven Studio.

The WEAK13 single 'Joke' is only available for a short time. Eventually it will be included on the debut WEAK13 studio album.

In a recent interview by writer Robert Baker for the music website “Live and die in music“, Nick J.Townsend reveals his thoughts on producing music videos and voices his opinions on why bands should try and make more of an effort to have fun when producing them.

WEAK13 enters 13th Independent Music Awards

WEAK13 are hoping to represent the UK after being recently told that they are to be included in the 13th Independent Music Awards for the ‘Best Hard Rock song’ category. The IMA, which is an international programme is one of if not the biggest Music awards for independent musicians. WEAK13 was first contacted by a Rep from the IMA in 2013 and became surprised late January this year to be in the position of being one of the few artists and bands representing their country in a global Artistry Award competition. The Midland three-piece consisting of drummer Neel Parmar, bassist Wesley Smith and Vocalist and guitarist Nick J.Townsend have the song titled ‘You Don’t Love Me’ ready to be judged for the ‘Best Hard Rock Song’ category, the tune was written and recorded in the Midlands. Nick J.Townsend commented: “It’s an anti-love song but a great tune overall. I’m just impressed that we have this opportunity to represent the UK with the band’s music”.

The Independent Music Awards is a prestigious international program that gets top-ranked independent artists & releases the recognition they need to reach millions of fans worldwide. Now in its 13th year, the IMAs honor artists who broaden the definition of commercial success & represent the diversity of the global Indie scene. This isn’t the first award that the independent band WEAK13 has had a shot at; the band’s music video ‘Wake Down’ successfully won the ‘Best music video’ category in the London Limelight Awards which also inspired vocalist and guitarist Nick J.Townsend to take up the serious role of being the producer for the bands following four music videos. Bass player Wesley Smith first heard the news during his birthday celebrations “What a Birthday present and what an opportunity for the band. This is perfect timing, we are on the verge of finishing our first full studio album and attention like this is just great”. The band state they are “excited” and “optimistic” about the concept of being nominated for an award of this kind and that “Just being part of this global competition is big news, if we were in the position to win the category then it would be great for our fans and of course Britain” (Quote: Neel Parmer – drummer for WEAK13).

The tune YOU DON’T LOVE ME which was written in 2010, produced and engineered by Isolated Atoms band member David Davies and recorded in Stourbridge (England) music complex Base studios had a music video filmed in 2011 which features many musicians from the Midlands that WEAK13 has worked with, friends and fans of the band including Becky Rose, Left for Red, Mudball, Isolated Atoms, XVII and Eight Great Fears. Directed by Martyn Kilvert and produced by Nick J.Townsend.

Wez Smith/BassMunky studio report

“As soon as we had finished GO AWAY the first song of our new batch of music I knew John Stewart was the one to record our album. The whole recording process was a complete joy an just felt right! Never before have I personally connected with an felt comfortable with my music in the hands of a producer”

“He listens to our ideas an what we want and knows how we sound so the final recordings feel true to us as personalities and remain faithful to our live sound. Nick and Neel are amazing to work with too and are two people that from day one rehearsal we all just clicked and have never looked back! Plus the new songs we have been putting together mature us as a band even further, so with all the right people in all the right places at the right time”

“This album is gonna be a force to be reckoned with, a breath of fresh air in a stale music world, something different and one to watch out for, peace out” x

WEAK13 drummer Neel Parmar gives his second studio reports on the progress of recording the WEAK13 studio album in his own very exhausted words.

“Hey you sex pests!! let me tell you a story…….there once was a very very sensational Asian man (let’s call him Neel) who was a party animal, literally he would party all day everyday nonstop……now after a night of sex…(drugs) and rock n roll….oh and lots of tequila…..(neel likes tequila)…..oh and no sleep at all…..he had to go to the studio and place his drum tracks down for the best and most respected producer in the entire land……now after travelling for what seemed like forever and a day he finally got the local village of the best and most respected producer in the entire land (lets call him John) and he was met by ‘john’ who took him to the most magical place in the world……..a studio where ‘johns’ amazing magical skill (and coffee) helped neel get thru the day and not only get thru 1 track but lay down the groundwork for 4 other tracks as well as some special surprises for the listener when the album is released………..”

“Ok I tried to be creative with it but the facts are….im fucked….I haven’t slept for 2 days…..legal highs can get the job done when desperate………and sex on them lasts forever!!…..but oh yeah studio was awesome thanks to john being amazing at what he does we managed to get through a lot more work than I thought we cud do in 1 day …especially when I am a walking zombie…..the new song ……well lets just say it is catchy…..crazy……and made the pain in my groin go away….”

Peace love and sex for hire
