As Night Falls
WEAK13 is a British band founded in 1999 by Nick J.Townsend in Kidderminster, United Kingdom.
Numerous musicians have played live in WEAK13. In 2010 the band line up became Neel Parmar (Drums), Wesley Smith (Bassist) and Nick J.Townsend (Vocals & Guitar). From 2010 artistic direction and responsibility became shared between Wesley, Neel and Nick and as a functioning solid three piece the band has developed it’s own unique style. The music is inspired by 1980’s Video Nasties, Underground music, Comic books, The Grunge and 90’s music scene and real life. Each song is a different story. Lyrics about loved ones who have passed away, songs about the future, death, life, survival, friendship, love, hate and positive thinking. All guitars on recordings are played using strange dark low tunings. WEAK13 is any style the band wants to be; every form of music in it’s rawest form. There is a song for everyone. As its main singer, producer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, Townsend is the longest official member of WEAK13. The band is now located in the home of heavy metal – THE BLACK COUNTRY.
