On May 20th, Sub Pop will release the debut album from Weird Nightmare, the new project from METZ guitarist and singer Alex Edkins.
On the first single, “Searching For You”, Edkins shares, “it’s a fun, no nonsense rock ‘n’ roll song. It’s about searching for meaning and inspiration all around us. In my mind, the ‘you’ in the chorus refers to something bigger than companionship or love, it’s that intangible thing we all look for but never find. ” The video for “Searching For You” was directed by Ryan Thompson and animated by Jordan “Dr. Cool” Minkoff. We are definitely looking forward to hearing the rest of the album.
Catch Weird Nightmare on the road With Kiwi Jr on the road, starting June 12, 2022 in Detroit, Michigan. Other stops include Brooklyn, Chicago, and Washington, DC.
