The Weakerthans are a four (sometimes six) piece band from Winnipeg, Manitoba. The band spans sonic territory ranging from punk to power pop to alt–country, all to the literate and progressively political lyrics of frontman John K. Samson.

Samson served in firebrand political punk act Propagandhi and issued the early Weakerthans albums, Fallow and Left and Leaving, through the collectivist G7 Welcoming Committee label. The band, now signed to Epitaph, features members from both Toronto (percussionist Jason Tait and bassist Greg Smith) and Winnipeg (guitarist Stephen Carroll and Samson). The band has toured as a six piece featuring keyboardist Dave MacKinnon and acoustic guitarist Brian Poirier, both of Toronto's FemBots.
