If you're any kind of awesome Minnesotan, you know City of the Weak already. If you don't, we'll solve that right now.

A lot of you already know COTW's bassist Cody Hoffman. He's a Rochester native. He (and his bandmates, Stef and Brent) is releasing his debut album Pulling Teeth with the band on June 22nd.

If you don't know City of the Weak or their sound, I highly recommend taking a listen to "Censor This" - it showcases their attitude, style, and what you can expect lyrically very well.

On a personal note, I can confirm that this project has been years in the making. Seriously - years. Stef, Brent, and Cody all wanted to be sure they were getting their sound right. It's the subject of a lot of time, hard work, and thought.

I'm so thrilled to see these guys take the rock scene by storm and represent Minnesota! Look for Pulling Teeth everywhere on June 22nd!
