The Steele Syndicate Release Their Much Anticipated Debut Album, ‘Weekend’s Coming’

Meanjin/Brisbane-based funk rockers, The Steele Syndicate, have today revealed their debut album,Weekend’s Coming. It features their super well-received feel-good, upbeat single, One Beer (Is Never Enough), and 11 new fun-filled tunes.

Weekend’s Coming captures everything The Steele Syndicate are about, multiple instrument arrangements, plenty of funk, a heap of horns and an overall uplifting vibe. Recorded all with analogue instrumentation, the result is a whole body of sound that will appeal to every music lover.

“I remember tracking the lead guitar line for ‘One Beer (Is Never Enough)’, and having this old Roland Jazz Chorus maxed to the proverbial 11, and there being so much thick noise even when the guitar was not playing, that it sounded like the studio was literally drawing breath.

While it was challenging to utilize only real instruments, in a day where nearly every sound can be achieved with the touch of a button, I think it presented a fun and creative opportunity to embrace limitations, and really allow the nuances and idiosyncrasies of analogue instrumentation to shine.”  – Steele McMahon, The Steele Syndicate.

The band are out on the road celebrating the release, with two more stops on the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane yet to come. These guys live for performing, so if you’re in these areas, make sure to get along to their shows.

Weekend’s Coming is available now everywhere.
