Weather is Happening began as a solo project, started by Daniel Davis in 2006, after the dissolution of Wichita hardcore band Ricky Fitts. Casey Loren (who also played guitar in Ricky Fitts) joined the band in late 2006, when they recorded their first demo and began performing shows. Through an incredible twist of fate, they were later joined in 2007 by legendary punk drummer Joe Ross, and recorded their full length the same year with Luke Tweedy at the newly launched Flat Black Studios. The band also included Sam Gunnerson on bass during their final two years of touring. Their album is a monument to loud, plodding and excessively energetic heavy music.
