Latest Weekend Nachos News
Below is our complete Weekend Nachos news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
In what is a seriously mixed message, Weekend Nachos has announced the band is coming to an end - and releasing a new album and touring through October. The group posted this message online for fans:
"To anybody who gives a shit, we would like to announce with both sadness and excitement that 2016 will be the final year as a band for Weekend Nachos. It's been almost 12 years and we have decided to hang it up. This is not for any reason other than the fact that all good things must eventually come to an end, and we are rapidly approaching the end of our time.
"It's been an insane and crazy ride for us to see where we were able to take this band. Everything was done completely on our terms and with the same DIY spirit that we had when Andy and I first jerked each other off in our Dekalb apartment in 2004. We will continue to apply that sacred mindset towards our future projects and endeavors... I hope all of you will do the same.
"We would like to thank anybody and everybody who ever shared this experience with us. Your support will never be matched and it has been a lot of fun. We will be playing a series of shows over the course of 2016 and as always, if you have a chance to see us, don't sleep! We never know when we'll be back. If it ever makes sense to play another show after our demise in the years to come, maybe we will, but don't count on it.
"Our 5th and final album, 'Apology, will become available sometime this year via Relapse Records, Cosmic Note and Deep Six Records. Thanks again, everybody.
"PS - below is what we have planned for 2016. There may be a few more shows added, but not many. If we are playing near you please come and say goodbye." More...

Weekend Nachos has issued the following update about the band's upcoming activity:
"It's been a while since we told everybody what was going on with us, so I figured I'd make a post. Facebook is not really my thing. We will be recording the 'Black Earth' 7" for A389 in a few weeks. this will feature 3 brand new songs, 2 off of our upcoming LP on Deep Six, and 1 exclusive B-side. in addition to those 3 new songs, the 4th song will be a re-recorded classic that we play at every single show but has still not been seen on an actual W.N. release until now. true Nacho enthusiasts can probably figure out which jam we're talking about. We really wanted to produce a heavier, updated version of the song and make it more recognizable for future live shows by putting it on an actual 7"....so there it shall be. Stoked.
"As mentioned earlier, we do have another full-length coming out in 2011. Like our last LP, Deep Six will be releasing the vinyl and Relapse will be handling the CD/digital version. We are still excited to work with both labels, because both are great in different ways and we love being able to share the love. There is no title for this record yet but you'll like it.
"As some of you know, we went to Europe in October for 3 1/2 weeks. I just wanted to state publicly that the tour was a big success and we had an amazing time. The whole experience changed my life and I can't wait to continue traveling with WN outside of the U.S., and hopefully back to some of the same places we went to on this first European tour. Thanks to anybody who came out...we really could not have asked for a better experience. Til next time! More...
Chicago's Weekend Nachos has issued the following update about releasing a new album:
"Yo, we have a new record coming out in a few months. As always, expect something different. Don't ask about pressing info because I will not respond. A rough preview recording will be coming soon. You'll be able to order the record directly from us whenever it comes out."
Samples of Weekend Nachos' music are also available for streaming at their MySpace page.
Weekend Nachos has issued a full tour blog of the dates on their west coast tour. Excerpts from the blog follow:
"Hey everybody…this is a blog i decided to type up featuring thoughts and memories from our West Coast tour that we just got home from. It's long...and opinionated at times...and overall very positive and thankful, so if you're not into those things, simply don't read it!!! no one's forcing you to, you know? otherwise, enjoy.
"CHICAGO, IL... This was our tour kick-off show at the Albion House and I booked it. To be honest, I didn’t really stress too much about promoting this one. It was all local bands and I figured even if 40 or 50 people showed up, it’d still be fun. That being said, the turnout was mind-blowing. I think 125 paid, which for a basement show is fucking PACKED. Chicago has a bad-ass scene right now, there is a lot of local support at all times, which is proven when a show that wasn’t even promoted that well can draw over 100 kids no problem. Razor Fade opened the show and they are my favorite band in Chicago or anywhere else in the country. Like Bats and the Catburglars played too and everybody had a blast. During our set, I got a concussion not even 2 minutes in and somehow managed to ignore it for the rest of the set due to pure hardcore adrenaline. More...
