In an ongoing effort to keep our fellow music/animation geeks up-to-date on all things Venture, we thought you might like to know that Venture Bros. co-writer/voice of many characters Doc Hammer has some new music on the way. Hammer, formerly of the goth-friendly bands Requiem in White and Mors Syphilitica, currently fronts New York-based outfit Weep, who despite their strangely straightforward cover of Rihanna's hit “Shut up and Drive,” reminds us of bands like Jesus & Mary Chain and Catherine Wheel.

The band's latest track, “Ever Shy (Nov. Mix)” is available on Projekt Records new compilation, Under the Weight of Light. The twelve-track disc is part of the label's budget-conscious series of albums. It features music from labelhead Sam Rosenthal's group Black Tape for a Blue Girl, along with Unto Ashes, The Twilight Garden, Soriah and others.
