Lead-off single 'Chemtrails' highlights the best of alt.pop - bringing equal measures of Lori's straight talk and contagious vocal riffs, driving beats and a hyper-fuzz wall of sound.

It's this mix that's seen them on global playlists on Apple, Deezer and YouTube - with airplay from Steve Lamacq BBC 6 Music, John Kennedy Radio X, BBC Intro, Charlie Ashcroft Amazing Radio, Johnny Doom at Kerrang! Radio, Wyatt Wendels Planet Rock, KEXP and by Rodney Bingenheimer Sirius XM, broadcasting nationally in the US.

'Chemtrails' confronts the way news and social media brainwashes the masses, telling us there is a certain way of doing things and how people should fit a mould:

"As a female in the music industry the number of times I have been told I should behave a certain way is too many to count... or my favourite 'You're good at guitar for a girl'..."

Already completing a successful 20-date headline tour this summer, Weekend Recovery have broken through onto the major stages, performing at Kendal Calling and Bingley Weekender this year, and having recently supported Starcrawler and False Heads on tour.
