WEISSHUND is a rock and roll duo from Atlanta made up of Rick Lollar (vocals and guitar) and Marlon Patton (drums and Moog bass pedals). Patton and Lollar channel their respective influences of John Bonham and Jimi Hendrix, while focusing on riffs and melody and performing with the reckless abandon of a garage band.
Lollar and Patton are regulars on stage and in the studio within the Atlanta music community and joined forces in early 2014 to find an outlet. “We stayed up all night, made a mighty whiskey-fueled ruckus, and when the dust cleared the next day, we found a pile of new songs,” says Lollar.
Weisshund has performed at venues such as Pete's Candy Store in Brooklyn, Rockwood Music Hall in Manhattan, Caledonia Lounge in Athens, Ga. And Terminal West in Atlanta.
Weisshund released their debut self-titled EP in June 2015 and are playing shows around the East Coast while working on their full-length follow up.
"Just in time for summer, “What You Came For” is a hard hitting new single from these garage rockers that will put this band on everyone’s radar." - Openears Music
"[Weisshund] plays a dense but unshowy brand of blues-rock that nods to the members’ technical prowess but never hinges on it." - Gabe Vodicka, Flagpole Magazine (Athens, GA)
