Chicago hardcore unit Weekend Nachos have released “Writhe”, the first single off of their swansong record Apology, due for release on CD and digital formats on May 20th via Relapse Records. Recorded again by the band’s very own Andy Nelson at Bricktop Studios, Apology will close out the band’s decade long presence with a triumphant thirteen tracks of self-described “utter punishment… sounding more dangerous and urgent than ever before”.
Vocalist John Hoffman said this about the album,
“Honestly, it’s a really really good record. I was nervous the whole time we were writing it, because it was like ‘This is it…this is our swansong. I hope we aren’t scraping the bottom of the barrel here.’ Truth is, we did scrape the bottom of the barrel, and it was the very last of the great material we’re capable of.”
