Weesp is the result of a great passion for music, shared by Lex (vocals), Mike (guitar) and Mi (bass) since they were in high school. It all happened in Minsk, Belarus: young gentlemen were having fun, playing music in Lex's garage, performing covers on their favourite songs, and sometimes created their own, mixing various genres.
Gradually, the band has formed their own unique style: a mix of hard, yet fluted modes with modern trends in electronic music and expressive vocal tunes. The band have also been acquiring concert experience overtime. Having recorded the second EP («Taste of Steel») in 2009, the band has finally announced its name – mysterious «WEESP».
Despite the success the band has faced in the beginning of their journey, the team members have been changing throughout the time, mainly drummers. The mess around the band’s drummers finished only by the beginning of work on the next EP, when Gul joined the band. Also, as the electronic part of the music was becoming more and more complicated and significant, especially in live shows, Lex just couldn’t bother handling it anymore, so that is when Mi’s twin brother Stak jumped in.
Weesp have already performed at numerous concerts and festivals, including those in Baltic countries and all over CIS. The band has recorded three EPs and released two singles, all of which were a great success. Not only is Weesp famous for the high quality of records for a DIY-band, but also for the outstanding show they do at the concerts. A number of articles in related magazines emphasize on the drive and energy the band are spreading over the crowd when performing.
In the beginning of 2012, Weesp released their first official video “Livan” and currently, the band’s singles are actively rotated in numerous European and US-based radio stations. The team is planning to start working on their first album by July 2012.
