Weakened Friends is a heart-on-the-sleeve indie rock band from New England. Comprised of Sonia Sturino and Cam Jones (both formerly of The Box Tiger), along with Annie Hoffman (of The Field Effect), this trio of fairly tall humans plays with a burning passion that’s hard to fake. This project seems a little more straightforward than The Box Tiger’s caterwaul in a pop-punk sort of way, and — if it’s possible — considerably more vicious. The band took a minute out of their busy regional tour schedule (which seems to include dominating Boston and Portland, Maine – with serious progress being made in NYC as well) to drop by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to give us a live taste of what they’ve got coming up.
Crushed by Weakened Friends will be released July 22, 2016.
