WEEN: THE FRIENDS EP

From http://www.chocodog.com:


Ween
With this update I'm pleased to announce the first new Ween release in a long while; The Friends EP will be released exclusively on Chocodog Records on June 8. It will not be available in stores until at least a few weeks later, but we will be selling it at our gigs starting on June 8. It features five brand new songs, none of which will appear on the new full length Ween album scheduled to be released this fall on a "real" record label, not Chocodog.

We have recorded a lot of new material the past year and we wanted to give you an appetizer for the summer. It is the ultimate party record, filled with good beats and good times. Perfect for your barbecue or doing bong hits or whatever it is that you guys do.

I believe it should read: Perfect for your barbecue and/or doing bong hits or whatever it is that you guys do. I don't want to have to choose, as they go so well together!

I saw Ween several years ago at the City Market in KC. I went as a lark with a few friends just because it was summer + outside + beer + live music. I always thought of Ween as a "joke" band. Holy moses. One of the best shows I have ever seen. I didn't know a lot of the songs, but they put 100 percent into each one of them. Oddly enough, I haven't seen them since then. I know they had some issues with substances and have been out for awhile. I hope all is well and look forward to catching them somewhere.

Luther, you said you always thought of ween as a "joke band"! May Boognish strike you down to the ground and punish you for saying such a thing.

Yeah, prior to seeing them live. Boognish struck me repeatedly.

"The second best duo in rock, next to the "D" of course."

Possibly the worst comment I've ever seen on jambase. Ween completely owns tenacious d. The new tracks I've heard from recent shows sound awesome, cant wait to hear studio versions of Fiesta and The Party. yea!!

Please add Hall and Oates and Loggins and Messina to your best duo in rock debate. It wouldn't be fair otherwise.

Why does everybody refer to Ween as a rock duo? It's been over ten years since they've played without a full band. And yes, they rule all...

Ween is without a doubt the hottest, nastiest, brownest rock band in the world right now. They are so on point it is REEEEEEdiculous. Just saw them two weeks ago in NC and they fuckin' destroyed. DO NOT MISS THEM.

I like tenacious d. But they're definitely more of a joke band then ween and no where near as talented. Can't wait for next weekend!!!!

You have to dive into Ween a bit to realize that they are not a joke band. In fact, they very much hate the moniker. They craft fantastic, sometimes perfect, pop tunes that are outrageously funny and also reflect a myriad of influences. Deaner, at least, has also been rather vocal in trashing jam bans like SCI, so kudos to JamBase for including them here. You must see them live. You have to embrace them with a sense of humor. They are not a novelty act. With Ween, it seems, you either get them or not. May the Boognish spare your ungentlemanly comportment.
