Bass-drum rascals, Big Business, have returned with a new album this summer, entitled Command Your Weather (8th July). Fans will already know Jared Warren and Coady Willis are the masters of fusing torrentially heavy sonics and rumbling bellows with an undeniable groove that forever dazzles listeners and spectators alike. The pair demonstrate that the distorted low-end can be fun and joyous without compromising on the exceedingly behemoth and frantic riffs that oozes out. You can get a good taste of Command Your Weather with the new tracks “Father’s Day” and “Regulars” now available for streaming…
Recorded in Joshua Tree, CA, Command Your Weather sees Big Business return to its original line-up of Jared Warren and Coady Willis. Recorded by Dave Curran of Unsane/Pigs (who has worked on Big Business’ previous output), the album shall be co-released via the band’s own label Gold Metal Records alongside Joyful Noise Recordings. It is encouraged that the digital purveyors amongst us buy the album via the band’s Bandcamp and various LP, CD and tape options can be found via Joyful Noise.
Founded in 2003 in Seattle, WA. Big Business has spent the last 13 years touring the world and making records including the full-lengths Head for the Shallow (2005), Here Come the Waterworks (2007), Mind the Drift (2009) and 2013’s Battlefields Forever – the first full-length LP they released on their Gold Metal Records label, with the former all released via Hydra Head. In 2006 Jared and Coady joined forces with the Melvins, whereby they have been an integral part of the family and an autonomous two-unit band ever since. In recent years, the duo have also toured extensively alongside Mastodon and Clutch.
