Win a copy of “We’re All We Have” the new CD by Divine Weeks
Email: [email protected]
Subject: DIVINE
Deadline for entries: 1/10/19 at noon

More than three decades ago, Divine Weeks were up-and-comers in the LA music scene that spawned Jane’s Addiction, fIREHOSE and House of Freaks during the politically charged era of Ronald Reagan. They signed to Dream Syndicate’s Steve Wynn’s label Down There/Restless Records for their debut album Through and Through. They toured relentlessly in support of “In the Country (For Jim Carroll)”, a hit on MTV’s newly launched “120 Minutes” that brought them national attention.

That was then. But now, Divine Weeks final full-length album is a plea to reclaim our country and our very democracy by being on the left side of history. Its target? Donald Trump’s America. We’re All We Have is a bold open-hearted appeal to reclaim the land of wonders and restore its humanity. It gives a voice to those who feel that our country and its institutions are slipping away from democracy.
