Artweg Announce New Album ‘Drunk’n High’ To Be Released 23rd October 2015


Three years after ‘Should We Get Violent ?’ and a tour all around the European territory, French “art-core” outfit Artweg just announced the release of its brand new full-length album, called ‘Drunk’n High’, and coming out (CD and digital formats) on 23rd October through Juste Une Trace Paris & Canada based label company (Treponem Pal). In the meantime, the band unveiled the artwork and an official music video illustrating the title track of this upcoming album.

…For the record…

Founded in about 2007, five-piece Parisian band Artweg played for the first time on stage as openers for the hip-hop/metal outfit Absolute and took some months to build its own musical universe, somewhere between rock, metal, punk and hardcore called “Art-core”. In 2010, “the five” recorded an EP before to embark for an European tour with Orphaned Land and to work on their début full-length album. Then Artweg released ‘Should we get violent ?’ in 2012 and played tons of furious gigs in France and the neighbour countries.

In 2015, the band will release its second full-length record : ‘Drunk’n High’ through Juste Une Trace.

For fans of Bad Brains, Pantera, Black Label Society, Lofofora, Maximum The Hormone…


About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
