"Lace Weeper are a Hard Rock band from Dublin, Ireland, they counter driving hard rock rhythms with mellow acoustics, and a keen sense of melody. The idea for the project was started by guitarist Matt Hayward and vocalist Sebastian Florek. The duo's mutual position of being without a band and overwhelming passion to make music, lead to creating something both original and heartfelt. Bassist Os Andres was added to the lineup in September 2010, a like minded musician adding the necessary dynamics.
From November 2010, the newly formed band entered the studio to record their debut E.P, 6 tracks which showcased the band's diversity and musicianship. Gavan Murray (Jaded Sun) lent his skills on drums for the recording. The EP was released in January 2011, gathering a good critical response. Regarding the song "In Midst The Water", critic Trevor Halpin said: "...the vocals really hit the high end notes the way a real rock tune should be done, excellent..."
In March, the band were finalists in Hard Rock Cafe's Battle Of The Bands 2011, and in April they teamed up with Kevin Wood of Malfunkshun to record a tribute to Kevin's late brother Andrew Wood of Mother Love Bone by recording a cover of MLB's "Crown Of Thorns". The once off single was released on WammyBox Records in mid-April. In an interview with antimusic.com regarding the release, Matt said "It was a huge honor for us to do this recording, myself and Kevin (Wood) have worked together previously and I was a huge fan of his and Andy's work."
The band then premiered a new song titled "So Long, Farewell, Goodbye" on Dublin's prestigious Radio Nova on April 17th, and done a short line of interviews, including Bandwagon TV among others.
They have been touring the country from top to bottom since March and have a new release in the works for late Summer 2011.
Utilizing heavy guitar based grooves and quirky acoustic melodies, embellished by bluesy solos, a pounding rhythm section and deeply metaphoric & poetic lyrics, Weeper are a band many have been waiting for." ~ (Band Bio)
