Bio

One More Weekend were formed in early March 2015 in Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs and includes frontman Connor Dougan on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Leith Dougan on Bass , Tim Aslett on lead guitar and Paul Healey on Drums. Working on Connor Dougans original songs the band grafted, crafted and mastered their current style of alternative rock.

In May 2015 OMW played their first show at the Grind n Groove in Healesville. At that show they were asked to fill in the next night for a last minute “no-show act” in a Battle of the Bands gig located at the Laundry Bar in Fitzroy, Melbourne hosted by Wedgetail Records.
They suddenly found themselves through to the final round of the battle performing alongside eight other finalists winning a full days recording at Wedgetail Records.

Live gigs started coming thick and fast including spots on the Melbourne legs of the Double Lined Minority and The Beautiful Monument tours. After winning the best act in the Knox Big Break Festival they were asked to play Dweebfest in Mt Gambier, performing to over 200 people.
With over 60 successful live shows around Melbourne alone, the band have developed their skills to produce a tight, high energy, performance.

Whilst gigging regularly OMW completed the tracking, mixing and mastering for their first full length debut album. Engineered and Mixed by David Carr at Rangemaster Studios (Kisschasy – Antiskeptic – Delta Goodrem-Guy Sebastian) and mastered by Martin Pullan at Edensound Mastering, the 12 track album titled “We Used To…” is to be released in April 2017.

With a recently purchased tour bus and three completed videos (with another three on the way) the band plan to tour Victoria and the Eastern Seaboard that will also include a return trip to SA.

Great to see you guys are still working at it since I judged you at that Battle of The Bands gig in August '15! This is pretty tight and I know you're capable of matching that energy through live means. Keen to hear the rest of this debut LP.
