Biography

Jackson MS, United States (2006 – present)

The Weeks are an indie rock band originally from Jackson, Mississippi.

The band was formed by Cain Barnes, Chaz Lindsay, Cyle Barnes, Damien Bone, and Samuel Williams in March of 2006 when they were between 14 and 16 years old. The band signed to the Esperanza Plantation label, with the debut album, Comeback Cadillac, released in July 2008. The album blended southern rock and alternative.

A second album, Rumspringa, followed in 2009. After some lineup changes that left them with a four piece of the Barnes twins, Bone and Williams, the band relocated to Nashville, TN. In March 2011, they returned to Water Valley, MS to work with Winn McElroy at his Black Wings Studio on the eight songs that encompass a 12” EP entitled, “Gutter Gaunt Gangster”, out October 11, 2011 on Esperanza Plantation.
They spent the next six months touring with Junior Astronomers, Local H, North Mississippi All-Stars, and The Meat Puppets. After signing with Kings of Leon’s new record label Serpents and Snakes, they re-released Gutter Gaunt Gangster September 25th, 2012.
Currently, the Weeks are anticipating a tour in the UK with KOL in the summer of 2013 and celebrating the accolades following the release of their current album, “Dear Bo Jackson”.

    If Eddie Vedder fronted a modern southern rock band, this is what it would sound like.

    They opened for the Meatpuppets last year. Got those tickets unexpectedly for free, and thank God I did.

    Dude, I haven't heard a new band this good in a long time keep up the amazing songs. Also, tour around the country, particularly around San Fransisco or California in general.
