Weatherbox‘s debut music video for “Armed to the Teeth” can be seen below. The song is off the bands new album American Art in stores now.
Weatherbox had their van and all of their gear stolen while in New York City. You can read the press release below.
The rumors are true. Weatherbox was about to go on their first national tour ever. Since they live in San Diego and the tour started in New York City, they had to drive cross-country to start this shindig with The Casket Salesmen. They arrived in NYC this past Tuesday when…bam! it happened. Apparently, some good Samaritans in Brooklyn thought it would be awesome to steal the band’s van, all of their equipment, and pre-made vegan snacks ready to eat. Bummer. It was a bitter-sweet day. On one hand, the band got to release their first full-length record, American Art. On the other hand, they got jacked hard and thought they’d have to cancel the tour.
Luckily, The Casket Salesmen are great dudes; they’re letting Weatherbox use their equipment for the entire tour letting the show still go on!
However, if you have any information about the band’s stolen gear, van, and vegan cheese, please contact [email protected] In lieu of accepting any donations, the band is just asking for supporters to check out their music at Interpunk or iTunes

There are some great releases coming out this week and we are highlighting them on the front page of the website. Check out the features on Chasing Victory, Foreverinmotin, and Weatherbox.
Look, if you missed out on Weatherbox’s recently released EP The Clearing then you need to get your music priorities straight. It was, simply put, awesome! However, if you’ve been living under a rock and missed out on it, don’t lose too much sleep as three of the five tracks, from the EP, have made their way onto their debut full length due out this spring.
Ok, now that I’ve snapped a batch on those who slept on The Clearing, I can address those individuals, like myself, that have listened to the EP fifty times and are getting a little tired of the five tracks. Unfortunately I wish that the three tracks hadn’t made their way onto the full length, but that’s marketting; and to be completely honest, they are probably the three tracks I would have picked to carry over to American Art. Let’s just be thankful that the entire EP didn’t find it’s way to the full length.
So where do I begin; Ãƒ”šÃ‚ the CD itself is a work of art. Lyrics are on point, guitars, drumming and vocals are excellent, if there was anything to be let down by, it would have to be the production level. Now, maybe it’s because my copy was an “advance” release and things could easily change from now to release date; but the production doesn’t take anything away from the stellar listening experience. Let it be known, my favorite track Snakes, Our Ground, which by the way can be streamed from their Myspace and Purevolume website, mixes great hooks and melodies that don’t disappoint… it has great lyrics about grass, wind, roots,
earth, fire, water, death, and going insane; without giving it outright away, it fills me with visuals of my
favorite Wednesday night show.
**Hint: Island Life for the TiVo generation.
American Art should be on everyone’s wish list, keep your eyes peeled in early May for it; You won’t be disappointed.
