CITY OF THE WEAK

“They’re all attitude all of the time and they do it in an unapologetic fashion.”  -PopWrapped 2014

“The music is hot, the shows are wild, and the larger-than-life personalities of frontwoman Stef w/ an F and her companions make this an act to keep an eye on.” -Auditory Assembly

From small town Montana to the streets of Minneapolis with a guitar and a fearless attitude. That’s how it all started for firecracker Stef w/ an F as she began building City of the Weak 4 years ago as a teenager. Add fierce guitarist Brent Lindblad & powerhouse Cody on bass and they became the unstoppable force they are today. With festivals like Chicago Open Air, Northern Invasion, Warped Tour dates, South by So What?!, and Rock Fest under their belt, they are quickly becoming a crowd favorite at every live appearance. They began touring in 2012, and by Spring 2014 were rolling across the country full time, clocking around 120 shows a year. After being featured on EMG TV and receiving 750,000 views on their first four music videos, City of the Weak premiered “Censor This” October 17, 2016 on VEVO. The single ended up charting at #19 on the Mediabase Active Rock Indie Label Report, #98 on the BDS Mainstream Rock Published Chart, #86 on the Mediabase Active Rock Published Chart, #104 on the Mediabase Active Rock Rolling Chart, & #130 on the BDS Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart.

City of the Weak captures a modern rock ‘n roll sound that is so perfectly defined, combining catchy pop melodies with rhythmic riffs and moving bass lines to create a genre of their own. They are best known for their intensity on stage, as well as their big personalities off the stage. Their first full-length album, produced by Craig Owens, will be available Spring 2017. Like Muen Magazine said, “City of the Weak is going to be a band to look out for in 2017 and beyond,” and you’re damn right they are.

FAR FROM INNOCENT

The band has received honors such as best local alternative band in Sioux City as part of the Z98 Underground Awards, placing 2nd in a local Sioux City battle of the bands, and to have been able to share the stage with many regional and even national touring acts over the past 6 years. Solstice On Fire has released a three song demo and are in the process of finishing their first album with a set goal of release in 2017.
