WEESP Have Released New Live Song Taken From Upcoming New Album 'Black Sails'!



Alternative electronic rockers WEESP from Minsk, Belarus who formed in 2008 have been delivering their own unique sound, combining elements of electronic, alternative and metal to create their edgy spacey rock. They have since received numerous publications worldwide and have played many gigs, including festivals in Belarus, Russia and Poland.

In 2015 they released their full-length debut album,'The Void' (you can read my review here: http://www.madaboutrock.co.uk/2015/08/weesp-void-review-minsk-rockers-hit.html) which was well received and showcased their diverse and stand out sound. It also featured guest vocals from Cory Brandan of Norma Jean on their single 'Solar Empires'.

Now the band have announced they are working on their second full-length follow-up and are about to start recording this at the Polish studio Hertz (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated). On the 29th May 2017, they stated that their drummer was at the studio and will have all the recordings for them done in a week. The working title of the new album is 'Black Sails' and it will feature nine new offerings. The producer of the album is well known  
Hiili Hiilesma, who has worked with many styles of music but mostly focused on Metal. He has collaborated with many established metal bands, such as HIM, Apocalyptica, The 69 Eyes, Sentenced and Lordi. 

In light of this exciting news, they have dropped a teaser of what to expect from the new upcoming album with a live performance video of a new, not yet titled song!

Check out the new atmospheric and soaring new song below:






'Black Sails' is going to be an album to look out for in 2017!
