Wight Announce Love is Not Only What You Know Release Show

It’s kind of hard to believe that by the time Sept. 24 rolls around it will have been four years since Wight released their second album, Through the Woods into Deep Water (review here), but what it means is that it’s been an even longer wait for their third outing than I consciously realized. Love is Not Only What You Know will be out this fall, marking the Darmstadt heavy psych rockers’ first album as a four-piece and a funk-fortified new direction for the band. Each of their albums has been a substantial leap from the one before it, so who knows how long this particular party will last before they move on to the next one, but you’re going to have to take my word for it when I say this is one to savor, particularly for those who might get down with classic sweaty grooves.

No exact release date for the album that I’ve seen, but in addition to a slot at Burg Herzberg in July and Swamp Fest also in September, they’ve got a release show booked for Love is Not Only What You Know in their hometown, and you’ll find the info for it below, as posted by guitarist/vocalist RenĂ© Hofmann.



Sep. 24 – Wight Record Release Party + Special Guests: Operators

Oetinger Villa
Kranichsteiner St. 81, 64289 Darmstadt, Hessen

Wight will finally release their third long player “Love Is Not Only What You Know”

We’d like to invite you all to celebrate the birth of our new art piece. It took us more time and effort than ever before. There’s a story behind it, the band’s and personal experiences of the last 4 years. There are countless people, who joined and left us in that time, who influenced us in our daily lives and in our artistical output. For my part, I am very grateful for the good and bad times. Love in all its facets hit me – joy, pain, family, friendship, to be stuck on somebody and being disappointed, to know that there is love and hate for yourself too…

Music is just there to stop thinking and start feeling… and enjoy exactly that!

Or to say it in Wayne Shorter’s words: “Music is interior decoration.”
