Seven Idiots came out in Japan last year and met with a mixture of critical praise and bewilderment. Rock Sound in UK said of the album, “its one of those records that leaves you wondering ‘what the hell happened’…superb.” WEG first came on to people’s radars in 2002, invited to perform at Barcelona’s renowned Sonar Festival. After releasing a collaborative album Palmless Prayer / Mass Murder Refrain with Japanese post-rock band Mono, WEG embarked on extensive tours in Europe and North America. Blending complex sound structures with beautiful melodies, reaching from electronic glitch to jazz-infused rock to modern classical, WEG’s arrangements have been featured in several soundtracks for acclaimed films.
