Premiered on Diffuser.fm

"Diffuser.fm has the exclusive premiere of ‘Fairweather Friends’ (streaming below), and a quick listen reveals the Band In Heaven are making music bigger and more nuanced than ever before. Featuring guest vocals from Victoria Winslet, the song is replete with a sweeping synth line, wistful strings and clean, melodic guitar picking, and the soaring vibrato vocals impart an undeniable sense of urgency. In fact, the band says ‘Fairweather Friends’ was meant to reflect the urgency, immediacy and energy of live rock ‘n’ roll.

“’Fairweather Friends’ is about that unique bond that exists between the band and the crowd for a 30 to 40 minute window, sharing spit and sweat, and the Stockholm Syndrome-like affect that lingers with the band after the fans and friends have all gone,” the band tells Diffuser.fm."

lyrics

White, bright burning light
Crowd tense, still holding tight
Chords keep ringing out
Sweat just keeps on pouring down

Babe, I’m so far gone
Think I know been here too long
The band keeps droning on
Saying last song last song last song

Put on a show
(put on a show)
Then you watch them go
Fairweather friends

(put on a show)

The sad, they greet the streets
Some got that look of pure defeat
We’re stoned and kicking stones
Guess I’ll let you take me home

Put on a show
(put on a show)
Then you watch them go
(then you watch them go)
Fairweather friends
