Weep is an American rock band from New York City whose music combines elements of Ethereal Wave, gothic rock, shoegazing, post-punk, and synthpop. Formed in 2008 by singer and guitarist Doc Hammer, formerly of Requiem in White and Mors Syphilitica and writer and voice actor for the animated television series The Venture Bros., the band's lineup also includes bass guitarist Fred Macaraeg, keyboard player Alex Dziena, and drummer Bill Kovalcik. Their debut EP Never Ever was released in 2008 through Hammer's Astro-Base Go company and Projekt Records, followed in 2010 by the full-length album Worn Thin and a remix EP, 6 Interpretations. Their second album, Alate, followed in 2012.

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. « hide
