WEAK13 is a British industrial / metal / grunge act, founded in 1999 by NICK J.TOWNSEND in Kidderminster, United Kingdom. As its main singer, producer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, Townsend is the only official member of WEAK13 and remains solely responsible for its musical and artistic direction. WEAK13's music is every genre with metal overtones. Townsend recruits a live band to perform with him on stage after recording WEAK13 songs in different studios.
NICK J.TOWNSEND is a British underground musician, singer and multi-instrumentalist. He operates under the studio name WEAK13.
WEAK13 has remained underground and independent by choice for many years as Townsend refuses to be controlled by record companies. The music has been passed around the underground for many years and only became known to a wider general public recently when Townsend signed his first ever publishing deal in 2007 with Newsound Records who released the DEATH MACHINE e.p. on iTunes. The deal still left Townsend full artistic control of the music.
After ten years Nick J.Townsend has until now never released a WEAK13 studio album. He will by 09.09.09 complete the first one, which in his own words "will change the music scene". Nick J.Townsend is prepared to negotiate with record companies a deal for this album which has taken him 10 years to write. Nick plays all the instruments on the album. Nick is working recording with an engineer who uses very unorthodox methods who goes under the name 'Crazy MULE'. Fréhel - Si tu n'étais pas là has inspired the WEAK13 album.
"The sound of the old 1930’s vinyl really made me think about how I want the whole album to sound, I want to capture unwanted noise and give it a place and home on WEAK13 songs. Valves and hiss are instruments of their own"
Quote: Nick J.Townsend
Over 50 recordings have been made since 1999 and starting from 2009 WEAK13 is recording at least 13 songs a year. 'A WORLD IN EXILE' will be the first official release in 2010 which will be followed by further albums.
