Minneapolis rock trio City of the Weak has released a steamy, defiant new music video for their single “Censor This”. The track will be on the band’s upcoming album (release date and title TBA) and was produced by Chiodos vocalist Craig Owens.
“Craig helped us take this song from 8 to 10.,” says vocalist Stef w/ an F Huschka. “He guided us in making the heavy parts hit harder and encouraged the unapologetic lyrics to be even sassier.“
Huschka says the song came out of frustration while writing their new album, with many people trying to force them to fit into a mold. “One day, we literally just said ‘Fuck it. Let’s just do what we want to do. Fuck everyone else.’ We started this band because we wanted to have a voice that mattered. We wanted to be able to speak to people from the heart, and empower them to live their lives how they want. So we decided to practice what we preach and we spoke from the heart. A couple days later, we had a whole song completely written. We had never been more excited about a song, and it felt great.“
“Censor This” is now available on iTunes.
Upcoming Tour Dates:
November 12th: St. Cloud, MN @ Tattoo & Arts Convention – (River’s Edge Convention Center)
December 17th: Mankato, MN @ Red Rocks w/ Royal Bliss
About City of the Weak:
“They’re all attitude all of the time and they do it in an unapologetic fashion.” -PopWrapped 2014
“The music is hot, the shows are wild, and the larger-than-life personalities of frontwoman Stef w/ an F and her companions make this an act to keep an eye on.” -Auditory Assembly
From small town Montana to the streets of Minneapolis with a guitar and a fearless attitude. That’s how it all started for firecracker Stef w/ an F as she began building City of the Weak 4 years ago as a teenager. Add fierce guitarist Brent Lindblad & powerhouse Cody on bass and they became the unstoppable force they are today. With festivals like Chicago Open Air, Northern Invasion, Warped Tour dates, South by So What?!, and Rock Fest under their belt, they are quickly becoming a crowd favorite at every live appearance. They began touring in 2012, and by Spring 2014 were rolling across the country full time, clocking around 120 shows a year. After being featured on EMG TV and receiving 700,000 views on their first four music videos, City of the Weak premiered “Censor This” October 17, 2016 on VEVO.
City of the Weak captures a modern rock ‘n roll sound that is so perfectly defined, combining catchy pop melodies with rhythmic riffs and moving bass lines to create a genre of their own. They are best known for their intensity on stage, as well as their big personalities off the stage. They are currently on tour with Adelitas Way & Cilver, and will be co-headlining the BlondTOURage Tour with Scarlet Canary later this month. Their first full-length album, produced by Craig Owens, will be available Spring 2017. Like Muen Magazine said, “City of the Weak is going to be a band to look out for in 2017 and beyond,” and you’re damn right they are.
