Weekend Disappears

Shaun Durkan (vocalist/bassist/guitarist) and Kevin Johnson (guitarist) first met and joined creative forces when they were just 12 years old, as bassists in the middle school band. Durkan’s father, the singer in post-punk band Half Church, had exposed Shaun to venerable likes of Killing Joke and the Cure (evidence that both are heavy influences on this forthcoming release.)
Years later, Durkan and Johnson attended the San Francisco Art Institute, where drummer Abe Pedroza was Durkan’s roommate. Known within their inner circles for having a near-machine-like drumming ability and love for all primarily obscure bands, Pedroza was quickly enlisted into what would become Weekend (serving as the band’s second drummer, replacing Taylor Valentino who departed the band following the recording of the band’s debut album, Sports)
2009—2011
Weekend officially formed in 2009 and recorded the Sports LP throughout the year at Ruminator Audio, which belongs to long-time friend and producer/engineer Monte Vallier (formerly of Jet Black Crayon, Swell, and Half Church- with Durkan’s father). “When we wrote Sports it was an explosion of energy and ideas,” Johnson says. “We’d been talking about doing the band for 10 years, so when we finally got together it was a cathartic release of energy and songs.”
Throughout the next two years, the band found itself touring internationally with the Kills (Europe) and Wire (UK and US) and in Japan in support of the 2011′s “Red” EP, which marked a sonic departure from the band’s initial signature addiction to noise over clarity. “Red” (which was also produced by Monte Vallier) saw the band embrace sweeter melodies that encouraged Shaun to display his vocal abilities free from any distortion overlap.
