Summer Jam, Sunday 23rd July, 15.20 – 15.40, Academy Stage, Sefton Park, Liverpool, FREE
Formed in late 2015, Weekend Wars are Jack, Bec, Andy, Matt and Rolo; four University friends and a savant for hire singer currently reshaping the musical landscape of the North West of England. Challenging the notion that Northern guitar bands come with hubris and swagger, Weekend Wars are refreshingly attitude free. Their ethos takes inspiration from the push and pull of daily life. How can music make our ordinary lives extraordinary? With their music, Weekend Wars want to take you from the week to the weekend. In 2016 with their first three singles the band received continued support from Dave Monks at BBC Introducing Merseyside, airplay and plaudits from 6 Music (Steve Lamacq and 6 Music Recommends), BBC Radio Scotland (Billy Sloan), Virgin Radio (Jon Jackson) as well as international exposure by being playlisted by Spotify Australia and New Zealand.
