We are very excited to be premiering the new single from Weakened Friends, “Hate Mail”. The track is a bitter guitar filled ode to kicking people out of your life featuring guitars from the legendary J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. Pretty awesome right? Take a listen below.

Here’s what the band had to say about the track:

“Hate Mail” is a bye-bye-good-riddance-f-u-very-much breakup song. Not about a soured romance, necessarily, but more so about toxic “friendships” that can contaminate the best parts of a person. This song is for anyone who has ever been gaslighted into questioning their own purpose, passions, sanity, or self-worth.  

We’ve been there; it sucks! Even in the aftermath, we’re still working through the persisting anger and emotional scarring caused by those relationships. As we started work on Hate Mail, it was clear that the sentiment of the track needed to be confident, aggressive, and loud. We employed the obvious: Fuzzy guitars, distorted vocals, some aptly placed yelling, etc. This sentiment was taken even further with a guest appearance from the king of loud-as-fuck guitars himself, J Mascis!

To go along with this new track, Weakened Friends are headed out on tour. Check out the dates below:
