NEWS: Long Weekends celebrate the release of Don't Reach Out 7" January 13 at Gus' Pub

Long Weekends celebrate the release of their new 7", Don't Reach Out (Noyes Records), Friday, January 13 at Gus' Pub. The show also features a performance from Monomyth.

After a series of online releases, Halifax’s Long Weekends have committed two gloomy garage-pop songs to vinyl. On Tuesday, January 10, Noyes Records will release Don’t Reach Out as part of their singles series, in which subscribers receive eight 7” records within 10 months.

The lead single “Don’t Reach Out” and its b-side “Show Your Face” find common ground between garage rock, punk and new wave. Simple arrangements carried by warbling vocals and pop riffs allow Long Weekends to address darker subject matter without losing the beat.

The three Halifax musicians banded together in early 2011 over a shared interest in punk and garage rock records. The release of their debut online-only EP Warmer Weather saw the group become a live band, chancing them the opportunity to play Pop Montreal, SappyFest and Halifax Pop Explosion with acts such as Fucked Up and PS I Love You.

Doors for the show open at 10:30pm. Admission is $5.00.
