Weak Patrol / Press

“ As any Van Islander will tell you, locals affectionately refer to living on Vancouver Island as living on “The Rock.” Lately, there is an entirely new reason for the rock terminology when discussing Vancouver Island. That is because of the growing fandemonium following Victoria BC’s Weak Patrol. The appropriateness of their tagline of “rock/high energy/awesome” is evident once you have seen them perform. Whether live or on video, their high voltage stage performances immediately translate into a good time for their audience. Weak Patrol’s Greatest Hits – Volume 1 showcases exactly why rock and roll tongues are wagging up and down Vancouver Island. From Tofino and Ucluelet to Port Hardy and Parksville, Van Islander’s have discovered the sweet sounds of this sweat-till-you-drop rock group. Discover for yourself why indie music on Vancouver Island is alive and well, thanks to creative characters like Victoria’s Weak Patrol. Your inner party demon will thank you.”

“Well, here they were again in their army inspired uniforms. Didn't take long for the place to erupt with the band's high energy indie rock. I still follow my "New Pornographers fronted by Jello Biafra" statement. It's hard to imagine how this band doesn't get tired. Frontman Caleb Kennedy strums his acoustic guitar harder than anyone I've ever seen and sweat seemed to shake from his flailing body. Carling Battistuzzi is always jumping around, swinging her hair. She has such a rock voice to her, but not in a way that would be non-accessible to the listener. Willis Schneider just gets the job done everytime I see him. He isn't much for putting on a show. He allows the others in the band to do so. Jaime Nolan had a bit of trouble getting the engine started as he stumbled through the first initial lead bits. He laughs it off. Dekan Delaney puts on a clinic each time. Really, this has to be one of the top acts in Victoria.”
