Big Business 'Command Your Weather' with New LP

Big Business 'Command Your Weather' with New LP
Los Angeles-based noise rock tag team Big Business are getting back to business. Three years removed from the release of their Battlefields Forever, the duo are now ready to deliver a record titled Command Your Weather.

Bassist Jared Warren and drummer Coady Willis' fifth full-length release as Big Business comes out July 8 via Joyful Noise Recordings and the group's very own Gold Metal Records. The nine-song set was recorded with producer Dave Curran (Unsane, Pigs), with whom Big Business had also worked with on Battlefields Forever.

The upcoming set is described as both "a haunting dream about the struggle for dominance of will over the power and unpredictability of nature" and "a really great rock record." You can decide if either of those tags are apt by giving the record's "Father's Day," a stoner-sludge rock-out, a stream down below.

A North American tour begins in the middle of June, with a lone Canadian stop booked at Toronto's Velvet Underground venue on July 4. You can see the full tour routing below as well.

While Willis and Warren have been working together as Big Business since forming in Seattle in 2003, they are also part of the Melvins' rotating cast of collaborators. Warren performs on one song from the Melvins' upcoming, multi-bass player employing Basses Loaded album, which sees release June 3 via Ipecac.
