Weekend Picnic- “Suffer The Silence” Single Review

Debuting the first single from their upcoming album, Weekend Picnic are already guaranteed to turn heads in the rock and metal community.

With the music scene being more crowded than ever, full to the brim with artists seeking to break the mould and become the next ‘big thing’, it is often rare to find a band that truly stands out from their emergence. 

Weekend Picnic, on the other hand, seem to achieve this with utter ease.

With their first single, ‘Suffer The Silence’, the up-and-coming band from Minneapolis announce their debut with a bang- offering a distinctive, yet, accessible sound that is guaranteed to appeal to the masses.

Depicting a stunning blend of genres, ranging from Heavy Rock to Pop, the single rings reminiscent to the most notable arena bands of recent years. 

Opening with the beautiful, yet, almost melancholic layering of instruments and vocals of frontman, Ehren Thomas, the track introduces the sound of Weekend Picnic without hesitation- drawing similarities to both Shinedown and Alter Bridge.

A song of both hope and resilience, the chorus kicks in with unprecedented force, erupting like a bolt of energy that promises to be even more epic when played live. 

A self-proclaimed melting pot of genres, Weekend Picnic bring both the high energy and the groove into metal- incorporating elements of heavy, Trivium-style ferocity with an uptempo accessibility that immediately gets you hooked from the second that it begins.

For fans of monumental arena bands such as Stone Sour and Black Stone Cherry, the track is merely a teaser as to what the band’s first album is yet to reveal. Blending different styles and commercialising even the most niche genres in their music, Weekend Picnic may just be the band to bring rock back to the forefront of mainstream media.




‘Suffer The Silence’ is out July 31st on all streaming platforms.

Weekend Picnic’s debut album is expected to be released later this year.

    • Hey Kiki! Thank you for your lovely words and support! In regards to starting your own site, I would suggest that if you’re completely serious about it, then go for one of the paid options on WordPress. That way, you can design a site that suits your image best without the worry of having to upgrade it and redesign it later down the line!
