mewithoutYou have shared a video for “Julia (or, ‘Holy to the LORD’ on the Bells of Horses).”
After the release and touring of 2015’s revelationary Pale Horses, mewithoutYou needed to find some space before the apocalypse turned inwards. Vocalist Aaron Weiss relocated to Idaho with his family, a makeshift home studio rig and MIDI keyboard while the rest of his bandmates (including his brother Mike) remained in Philadelphia workshopping new ideas with producer Will Yip. There’s that one saying, you know, that distance makes the heart grow fonder? Well for the genre-defying quintet, distance also made the creativity flow more freely than every before, while some inner-band tensions and relationship strife served as the impetus to untapped creativity and fueled the [Untitled] recording sessions with Yip, yielding 19 new songs (spanning one EP and one LP, both sharing the same name) that showcase the duality within mewithoutYou’s dazzling soundscape.
mewithoutYou have released their new song “Julia (Or, ‘Holy To The LORD’ On The Bells of Horses).” It looks like pre-orders for then new album will be up on Friday.
Mazzotta: “We finished a banger with [producer] Will Yip. It bangs! I’m pretty hyped on it. It took a long time to make, too. It took over a year… It’s still not 100% done, I’m going back into the studio the week we get home.”
Say Anything and mewithoutYou are releasing a limited 7″ while on tour together. Say Anything covered mewithoutYou’s “Torches Together,” but retitled it “Torches Apart.” And mewithoutYou covered Say Anything’s “Cemetery,” added in a little “Baby Girl, I’m A Blur,” and called it “Cleo’s Ferry Cemetery.” You can stream the 7″ below.
Letting you guys know – if you’re able to get out to a show, we will have “The Say Anything / mewithoutYou Tour Split” at our merch table. It’s a limited edition 7″ featuring each band’s unique and personalized take each other’s songs (basically a re-worked cover of our fav’ mewithoutyou song and vice-versa).
