In 2012, the band consisting of Nick J Townsend, Wesley Smith and Neel Parmar began work on recording the first professional Weak13 studio album with producer John Stewart from British band Eight Great Fears; the They Live album was completed in 2015. The CD release was first launched at a Birmingham nightclub called Plug located in Digbeth on 6 November 2015. Henry Smithson was chosen to master the They Live album after the band heard his previous work for Stereophonics. Weak13 began working with film makers Greg Gdow and Margaret Mas of FiftySeven Studios in 2013 to produce a trilogy of music videos to promote demo versions of songs "Joke", "Sex Pest" and "Go Away". All three of these songs became later rerecorded in the studio. "Go Away" was not included on the final version of the debut album. During 2015 the band received attention in the media for their participation in a charity nude calendar to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support;. The three piece were seen naked in the calendar as the month of March along with other UK musicians such as The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins who appeared as Mr September. (en)
