Weakened Friends
Weakened Friends
Weakened Friends emerged from the rubble of a few withering projects, fueled by the desire to simply have fun with music again. The fuzz rock trio's short songs are catchy, moody, candid, and to-the-goddamn-point. Weakened Friends is relentlessly energetic and unapologetically LOUD.

The Color and Sound
The Color and Sound
The Color and Sound started as a collaborative idea between friends in December 2012. LaRocque, Aliperta, Mahoney and Aylward had previously played together in the local indie pop/punk band, Life on Hold. While the band, fronted by Mahoney, generated moderate success, their collective hearts were growing away from their pop/punk roots. Opting for a change and a clean slate, TCAS added two new members to the group, Nicholas Stewart (ex-Emerson) and Christen Aliperta (ex-Warrior of Might and Magic), and set out to create a new sound with a new approach.

The resulting sound includes an array of constant group vocals, harmonies and pop simplicity. In a live setting their music is, as the name suggests, an explosion of lights and sounds. The Color and Sound has a dedicated light/sound engineer, Bruce Malley (PrayforSound.com) as well as a passion for their music that can't be faked.

Tracking in their own Kennedy Studios, The Color and Sound started working on their first album in January of 2013. With the freedom of their own space, hand built from the ground up, the band primarily writes in the studio and reworks each song for live shows. Infusing pop sensibility into modern folk/rock, the idea behind The Color and Sound is an ambitious effort that could only come to fruition with the collective minds involved.
