The Weight: Are Men

The Weight
Are Men
Tee Pee Records [2009]

Fire Drills Review:
The Weight are a straight up twangy rock band from Brooklyn that play hard, sing loud, and generally sound like they are having a great time. Are Men has a laid back feel to it but musically it is tight and comes complete with sing along choruses, three-part harmonies and solid guitar work. The Weight offers everything you want from this type of album, which is some hearty gang vocals, just the right balance of country in the rock and the feeling that seeing them live is going to blow your mind!

Key Track: "Had It Made"

Band With Similar Fire: The Bottle Rockets
