The Weak Need

About

In 2007 songwriter Sean Croley had decided to release an EP (entitled Walk") of some songs that he had been writing under the musical pen name; “the Weak Need”. He then used that EP to find players to form an actual band. In 2009, the Weak Need (band) released their first CD entitled “Restitution”. This CD was promptly nominated for a GMA Modern Rock Alternative Album Of The Year. In 2012, they released another album entitled “Everything But You”. However, shortly after this CD came out, Croley decided to step out of the band as it became more of chore than a joy. This was an extremely difficult decision for him. Within a few short days after Croley’s decision, there was a new writing freedom that came over him and he hunkered down in his basement studio and started both writing and recording immediately. Sean drew on his vast loop library, band samples and outtakes from previous CD's, along with virtual instruments and was writing an average of a song a week spending up to 18 hours a day in the basement. Ready For Rome (Released April 2013) was the culmination of that time and effort. The next morning after Ready for Rome was released; Sean was right back at it in the studio and began writing for the next project which he has now called “The Ascent”, a radio friendly 8 song EP. Once again Sean has chosen to release The Ascent project under the pen name as well with his reaon simply being this; “…the Weak Need name is simply a vessel to deliver the songs that I have written. The players themselves are the essential parts that make up the heart and soul of the band.” With the increased demand of live appearances, Sean has surrounded himself with an amazing lineup of top players who he now comfortably calls the Weak Need. The only other original member of the band Rob Brayshaw continues to play rhythm guitar. Acclaimed bassist Junior Riggan, guitarist Tony Lind and drummer Dan Todd are all on board and happy to be a part of the Weak Need.

10/26/14 12:07:32PM @james-banfields-top-20-songs:

Hi Sean and guys .. wow! This whole alum is a work of art... talk about diversity? I like "Because of Me" but as I was listening to the album I got hung up on the opening song, "Good Favor". What an intro and hard driving! awesome project... well so which one do I show as hitting the IGA Top 20 Chart for Nov 2014? Answer... Both of them! I'll make up my mind next month but right now they both should be there and so they will be... I have to agree with your little side comment... "The Weak Need" is back.... Welcome back... In Him JB
