The Weekend Classic
Hailing from Madison, IN comes The Weekend Classic, an alternative rock trio consisting of Chris Webster (vocals/guitar), Ryan Wells (guitar/vocals), and Christian Richards (drums). Formed in 2012, The Weekend Classic used their quintessential high school years to develop, practice, and fine-tune their sound. They soon began booking and playing shows along the Midwest with acts like Fossil Youth, Life Lessons, and Hold Close. However, it wasn’t until 2016 that the band would see their hard work and do-it-yourself mentality truly pay off after applying to the PLAY Warped Tour Program (formerly Ernie Ball Battle of The Bands). Beating out over 11,000 bands, The Weekend Classic was selected to play the Indianapolis date of the Vans Warped Tour for their unique crass, yet heartfelt three-part vocals and brain-tickling riffs. Following their successful summer, the band released their debut EP, When You Had Nothing, in fall of 2016 which was produced by Seth Henderson (Real Friends, Knuckle Puck) and mastered by John Naclerio, featuring lead single “Tethered” with guest vocals by Joe Taylor of Knuckle Puck. Shortly after, the band returned to the studio and released their EP, More Alive, which was produced by Chad Gilbert (of New Found Glory), engineered by Ryan Key (of Yellowcard), and mixed by Jon Howard (formerly of Paramore). After a successful 2017, The Weekend Classic signed with independent record label, Rude Records. Now a little older and wiser, the band collaborated with Seth Henderson once again to produce and mix their new 6-track EP,Better Health, out April 6th, 2018.
