VINYL ISSUES

hey field trippers

it has come to our attention that there's been a mix-up at the manufacturing plant, and some of the boxes marked "pink" actually contained black LPs. 
not ideal. 
if you pre-ordered a pink LP and got a black one, email store@lefserecords.com and we can sort this fuckstorm out. 
thanks for the loyalty and we are really sorry this is a Thing!!

PS
if you ordered a cassette from http://deserve.storenvy.com it will ship next week when we return from tour. and we'll also be updating with some leftover east coast tour merch at that time!

most common interview questions we get

from now on if anybody asks one of these questions i am gonna kick the interviewer in the throat...

so the name weed, why'd you pick that?
it's about the verb weed, like when you weed somebody out of your life.

do you smoke a lot of weed though?
no.

is bobby still in the band?
no but he does play occasional shows with us. he is busy with his own project.

who are your influences?
my bloody valentine, husker du, dinosaur jr, sonic youth, the band.

how do you write songs?
kevin or will comes up with a riff then we bring them to the practice space and edit them.

why is playing all-ages shows so important to you?
because everyone should get to see the shows.

does that make it harder to book tours?
not that i know of.


i run a small newspaper in vancouver and do a lot of interviews... it's not that hard to talk about interesting things.

i shot this footage





if you ask me (flip), this is the best band going in the pacific northwest these days.... got to hear a sneak peek of their new LP and it is seriously next level. not to mention the group is made up of three of the sweetest hearts i've been able to get to know over my short life (after all, we are only alive for three seconds, and by the time i finish writing this sentence, the first second is already expired)
