We are You Can Be A Wesley, an indie-surf-pop-rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. We're recording a new EP this spring.

We are You Can Be A Wesley, an indie-surf-pop-rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. 

This past September, our drummer Dylan ditched his west-coast life on a whimsical suggestion and drove cross-country to join the band and live in our house. He did this on a week’s notice, in three days, in a beat-down pickup truck with a hatch-back that read “Ray’s Errand Service.” But that’s neither here nor there. Moving on.

Dylan’s arrival sparked a new period for the band. We set to writing new songs with a renewed focus, we finished material that had lain dormant for months. We did this in preparation for our kickstarter-dependent five-song EP, which we hope to record in April. This will be our second official release.

Over the summer we recorded two songs, “Old in Florida” and “Talking Science,” which we released as singles in October. Now we have three new songs to compliment the existing two. It is time to jump back in the studio and finish what we started.

One hundred percent of the money raised will go to recording, mixing and mastering this album. One hundred percent of our blood, sweat and love will go into hand-making you - our family, friends and fans - limited-edition gear. And as a universal gift for aiding the project, each tier includes an advance copy of the album.

And don’t worry, we only half mean that part about the blood. That sounds dangerous. 

Kisses,

Wesleys
