BIG BUSINESS Streams Its Duet Effort, Command Your Weather

Duo Big Business is still good!

Duo Big Business is still good!

Bassist Jared Warren and drummer Coady Willis, both of The Melvins, are back to being a duo on Big Business' latest offering, Command Your Weather. The band lost guitarist Scott Martin, who played on 2013's Battlefields Forever, in a series of events that Willis deems "kind of a bummer."

In an interview with Noisey, who also provided the stream of the album, both Warren and Willis say that even though the loss of Martin was definitely not fun, they managed to channel their negative experiences into something fantastic – namely what you hear below.

“We kind of had a rough year parting ways with our guitar player,” Coady admits, when asked about the darker elements of the album. He is sitting across from me at a bar table in Portland, Oregon where they have just finished playing a set at a mini-festival at B-Side, a beloved East Burnside rock ‘n’ roll dive bar, celebrating its 10-year-anniversary. “It was kind of a bummer process. It didn’t end well. That might have had something to do with it.” But that doesn’t mean their signature humor—and even hopefulness—doesn’t seep into the songs. “Going back to a two-piece again, it felt like we really pulled together and did something good. We felt hopeful at the same time. We were really excited about it, and it felt like a new beginning.”

Grab a copy of Command Your Weather right here before it's out on July 8.
