RnR Frontier – Inside the Frontier with City of the Weak

This week we sit down with City of the Weak vocalist Stef with an F!

From small town Montana to the streets of Minneapolis with a guitar and a fearless attitude. That’s how it all started for firecracker Stef w/ an F as she began building City of the Weak 5 years ago as a teenager. Add fierce guitarist Brent Lindblad & powerhouse Cody on bass and they became the unstoppable force they are today. With festivals like Chicago Open Air, Northern Invasion, Warped Tour dates, South by So What?!, and Rock Fest under their belt, they are quickly becoming a crowd favorite at every live appearance. They began touring in 2012, and by Spring 2014 were rolling across the country full time, clocking around 120 shows a year. After being featured on EMG TV and receiving 900,000 views on their first five music videos, City of the Weak premiered their self-produced video for “Ungrateful” March 8th, 2017 on VEVO.

City of the Weak captures a modern rock ‘n roll sound that is so perfectly defined, combining catchy pop melodies with rhythmic riffs and moving bass lines to create a genre of their own. They are best known for their intensity on stage, as well as their big personalities off the stage. Their first full-length album, produced by Craig Owens, will be available in 2017, accompanied by main stage performances at Rock USA & Rock Fest Cadott in July. Like Muen Magazine said, “City of the Weak is going to be a band to look out for in 2017 and beyond,” and you’re damn right they are.
