Weed---by-andrew-volk-1mALL-AGES OR BUST

Sitting down with Will Anderson from Weed, BeatRoute talks to the singer about what to expect if you’ve never gone to a Weed show, tour life and the band’s upcoming debut LP, Deserve which will be released on Couple Skate. The first single off the album is “Set Me Back,” which kind of sounds like something you’ve listened to before, but in the best possible way; it’s completely nostalgic, yet new.

“We’ve been on four North American tours. Each [city] got its own weirdness. We like checking out different [places],” Anderson says. Weed is a band that loves to tour, but, with the members’ day jobs and other responsibilities, it can be difficult to get on the road. “[Getting] that balancing act going on, it’s tough but we try to get out there as much as possible,” Anderson reflects.

So, when Weed comes to a town near you what should you expect? The frontman says, “The only ages we play are all. It’s got to be all-ages or it’s not for us, it can make it more difficult at times but it’s fair. We’re all younger ones.”

When you do see Weed though, the thought of smells in small venues are not unexpected, but the over-fifty crowd is something you might run into. Anderson notes, “Our crowds are pretty mixed, a lot of ladies, a lot of guys. Some of the places we play at are random houses and some people show up thinking it’s just a neighbourhood house party, so you get some mom and dads in there thinking that their high school-ish kids are drinking cause it’s a kegger.”

And when their parents are in town they come too. “They’re not front and centre but they’re having a good time,” Anderson says. Weed is multi-generational.

Weed will release Deserve on Sept. 10.
