WEEP, also known as Doc Hammer's Weep is an American rock band from New York City whose music combines elements of shoegazing, post-punk and synthpop. Formed in 2008 by singer and guitarist Doc Hammer, formerly of Requiem in White and Mors Syphilitica, the band's lineup also includes Fred Macaraeg on bass guitar, Alex Dziena on keyboards, and Bill Kovalcik on drums. Their debut EP Never Ever was released in 2008, followed in 2010 by the full-length album Worn Thin and a remix EP, 6 Interpretations. In January 2011 WEEP released a digital single for Lay There and Drown and The Hole, two songs from Never Ever that Hammer remixed, remastered, and re-recorded some vocal parts for. The following month, on Valentine's Day, the band gave away a free music download of a cover version of Bauhaus' 1981 single The Passion of Lovers. WEEP's music has been described as dark and expansive, with "shimmering guitars and spacy synthesizers".
Hammer's singing voice has been noted for its gravelly, robotic qualities which provide a counterpoint to the lush song arrangements. Critics have compared the band to a number of post-punk, alternative rock, and shoegaze acts of the 1980s and 1990s. 2. Blend infectious melodies, tight harmonies, and an in your face modern funk rock style with lyrics that echo the human condition, and you emerge with a uniquely diverse sound that heals, transforms and promotes love and peace; the sound of the 5 individuals known as WEEP, who together, bring the music to life, and take the listener on a journey of true emotions! WEEP's journey began in Minneapolis, MN, with Robin Lynn Winkelmann, Kim Paschke, and former bassist Kristine Gretillat. Taking a detour to Ithaca, NY, where they recorded two CDs, and toured endlessly on the East Coast, (including frequent returns to New York City and the now defunct CBGB’s), Kim and Robin, on the heels of Kristine’s departure from WEEP, have continued the journey to their current home in Central Florida, where they are now gracing stages with their new, very talented lineup: Keyboardist Melanie England, Drummer Rhonda 'G' Attkisson, Guitarist Suzanne Daly, Kim now on bass and Robin.
